front license plate bracket

I have a 2004 E55 AMG with front and rear park-assist (sensors)

My State requires cars have a front and rear license plate
The rear plate (obviously) is no problem
Does anyone know of a kool, sporty, front license plate bracket/holder that fits the front of a E55 AMG. I've been looking for those sexy LOW corner mounted brackets/holders....but so far my search has come up empty

Might anyone know of where i can buy a nice stylish front license plate bracket/holder?

Much Thx for your Time and Help

There is a link somewhere of one that connects through the tow-hook opening. VERY cool concept. I'll see if I can find it for you.

Although WA state requires a front plate, I've never put one on.

However, I did see a novel approach on a fairly new Porsche. The owner had a picture taken of his plate. He then took to a local print shop, had it blown up to actual size and laminated with an adhesive back. Put it on his bumper and you really had to look hard at it to see it was like a big bumper sticker. Type of adhesive allowed it to be removed without damage.

It looked great. I wish I had thought to take a picture of it.

Good luck.

mike k....thats a great idea!....i have a friend that makes those peel-on-peel-off 'decals' or stickers that you see contractors and/or companies put on their cars, trucks, vans, etc. i can't imagine a small 'license plate' decal being too complicated or expensive to make; i'm going to look into this ASAP. thank you for the idea and feedback....Yu da Bomb. carmine

carmine,

I think you're on the right track. As you have a friend in the business, he may come up with some better ideas. If you find a sticker/material that works, would you post some pictures? That may be the answer for a few of us.

Good luck.
