Alternative to mounting front license plate

Thanks to a recommendation from FifthStreetz, I purchased a license plate bracket from www.gominigo.com. This is an alternative way to mount your front license plate rather than drilling holes in the brand new bumper of your new E92 M3!

The Customer Service people at gominigo.com were extremely helpful. The part number for this bracket is BMW62 and the cost is $55. It is extrememly easy to install and requires no drilling of the bumper. It uses the existing tow hook hole in the bumper. All the necessary hardware is included.

True, but I plan on using it just to pass NJ state inspection, which I won't need for 4 years.

To each their own. I kind of like it; I have one that I run all the time.

I don't think his hood is latched down on the passenger side all the way...

You're the first to notice! This pic was taken in Mar '08 when I got my car. I noticed the gap and took it back to the dealer. Turns out one of the rubber spacers under the hood had to be adjusted.

To pass a one time inspection or to pass a fix it ticket (also a one time inspection) and to pay way less than this.

1. Use the front mounting frame (large ugly plastic part) that comes with your car.
2. Put some clear packing tape on your bumper roughly aligned with the edge of the frame.
3. Adhere the frame to the bumper (protected by the packing tape) with double sided foam tape. Multiple layere may be required.
4. After the inspection promptly remove everything until required the next time.
