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 the Bavarian Beast like the E9X M3. Most BMW owners agree that an M3 looks much better without an ugly font license plate. Unfortunately many states strictly enforce front plate laws, so completely deleting the M3's front plate isn't an option for everyone. This kit offers the best solution! Made specifically for 2008-2013 BMW M3.
This kit is made very specifically fort he unique and aggressive front body work of the E9X chassis M3 models. Special care and consideration was made to make this a very slick relocation for the V8 M3. Once installed, the parts allow you to use the factory tow hook eye as your front license plate mount, 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 the 2008-2013 BMW M3. 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 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.
Works With or Without Front Park Distance Control
This kit was designed to work on the E90/E92/E93 M3 with the factory Park Distance Control (PDC) system. If you don't have PDC, you have a little more adjustment room, while if you have PDC, this bracket gives you enough adjustment to place the plate a safe distance between the front PDC sensors, so it does not set of the proximity sensors or interfere with the PDC system. This kit was designed with on the E9X M3 V8 in mind, and works really well as a result. 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 E90 M3 Sedan, E92 M3 Coupe, & E93 M3 Convertible.
This kit can be used on any M3 for the model year 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, or 2013.
