It should be a crime to drill holes in the middle of the front bumper cover on a BMW. But that's just what BMW does to mount the front license plate. It's unthinkable, especially on a good looking E46! Most BMW owners agree that a BMW looks much better without an ugly font license plate. Unfortunately many states strictly enforce front plate laws, so completely deleting the front plate isn't an option for everyone.
 
For non-M E46 Models including ZHP bumpers. This kit is made very specifically for the non-M E46 3-series with stock or replica ZHP front bumper. This kit is not designed for cars with an M3 style front bumper.  

This slick relocation kit allows you to use the factory tow hook eye as a mount point, so you can completely "delete" and remove the ugly stock center-mounted bracket. Now your BMW can look better, while still complying with local front plate laws. 

We found this kit to be an easy, cost-effective, and well made solution for mounting your front license plate in the tow hook receiver of any non-M E46. No modifications are required, and if you are installing this on a fresh/new front bumper, you can avoid drilling the dreaded holes in your bumper. 

Easy Installation - Can be removed in Minutes!
Installation is quite simple, using simple Allen keys (included) and a 17mm wrench (not included). We love that you can also remove this in minutes. This means you could drive (legally) with a front plate to a car show, remove the plate at the show, and reinstall your tow hook plate bracket for a legal drive home. And still no holes needed in your bumper! 
Adjustable Tow Hook License Plate Mount
Adjustable for Many Angles & Positions
The bracket offers multiple adjustable mounting positions, which gives you some aesthetic options if you are picky on how the plate is positioned. You can also move your plate further away from headlights or fog lights, or adjust the angle to more close mimic the body contour of your front bumper. 
High Quality Construction
It was important that we carry a solution that was both well-built but also not overly heavy. Who wants to add dead weight to their BMW? This solution is well engineered, with the main plate frame made of T6061 aircraft-grade aluminum, a precision CNC mounting dowel, and quality hardware/fasteners. 

For E46 3 Series (1999-2006) with Standard / Non-M Bumper, as offered in model years 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, and 2005. Also fits 2006 2 door 3-series models, which were still the E46 chassis. This plate mount kit is NOT designed for replica M3 bumpers, only the stock style non-M front bumpers that original came on the non-M E46 models.
