the bolt size for the tow hitch

so i bought a german plate off of ebay

eBay Motors: German Stuttgart EURO license plate+ MERCEDES Frame EXC (item 120085240128 end time Feb-11-07 15:26:36 PST)

its badass, BUT...i bought it about 3 weeks ago, i got my C230 w/ Carlsson performance package in a wreck about 2 weeks

before it was in a wreck there was a generic front license plate, so that's why i bought this one. I just got my car back and now there's no plate on it and just a clean bumper, sweet! But i still want to mount this plate but i am refusing to drill through my nice new bumper.

so here's what the creative side in me thought of. i would take off the small plastic piece in the front bumper where you can screw in that big bolt to get a tow, but now get a bolt the same size and mount a nut on the end with a large metal square on the end that i can mount the frame and plate on.

i know that sounds really confusing but its making sense to me in my head.

so i went to home depot and they don't carry that size of a bolt because it is just a little bit bigger than 5/8". the guy said that it was in the metric system since it was from germany and that i wouldn't be able to find one. well i want to prove him wrong so does anyone know what size this bolt is and where i could possible get one.
