How to mount traditional license plate holder on front of c300

Hey mates,

I bought my c300 in Chicago and just realized today that it doesn't have a license plate holder installed on the front bumper - Wisconsin is one of the few states that requires a license on both front and rear of car.

Any advice on how to do this/where to get a kit for the c300? Would a normal kit for any car fit or should I go to a bodyshop familiar with MB's or a MB dealership itself?

Would a MB dealership give me a free first time visit since I'm a new owner even though I bought this 2011 c300 from a non-MB dealer?

Thanks in advance

Try it with the dealer
I had the same issue with E I bought in Illinois and finally drilled holes in bumper cover and put screws directly. You can even buy curved license plate frame if you want.
