How many of you have a license plate on the front of your car?
Do you have any pictures? I ordered a vanity plate but am afraid
to drill the holes in the front.... I don't want to hate it in a few weeks
and then be stuck with holes in my bumper.

Thanks

Most of us outside of the US!

Not sure if you guys have a slightly different bumper but on ours there is a recess molded in to the front for the plate.

In the pic I have a chrome surround and in my case this screwed to the bumper. Then the plate is held in place with double-sided tape.

I'd say that try it with industrial grade double-sided tape first. Depending on the plate you may find it helpful to bend it to accommodate any curvature, that way it will take more pressure off the tape.

If you do choose to screw the plate on then there is an ali! crash structure behind the plastic so plenty for a screw to bite.

Purchase an Aero Kit Plate Bracket from your dealer, I think about $40. It will place the plate lower and not in the way of your grill lines, and also the holes drill up underneath not on the front where they can be seen.
