Show and Go license plate

Has anyone installed this on their GT? It is a retractable motorized front license plate bracket.

Im running without a front plate. In NY thatís easy target for the po-po.

I had the same concerns but the deal was too good to pass up. So I had ceramic pro put on the car, itís great with repelling water and dirt and keeps the color deep. So far so good.

I found a local custom shop that can install a Show and Go or Audiovox license plate holder for the front. They recommended to go with a manual one as shown in this thread, not an automatic one. They say that the automatic ones freeze up, break down, etc. Given the point at the front of the 2018 GT, I was concerned about how much the bracket would stick out. I was also concerned about the low clearance. To address these issues, they told be that on a GT they once put the bracket ABOVE the chrome-like front, in the space where those black vents are. Some vents would need to be removed for the bracket to fit. They said that it turned out great, the plate was hidden and there was not a clearance problem. It sort of had the look of where European plates are when flipped up. I asked about any resale issues, they said that if I ever needed to replace those vents, it would cost about $130 to put in a new vent assembly in that space. I have asked to see a picture if they have one. This may be an even better solution.

I stopped by the shop and upon further review this idea wonít work for me. The Mercedes star gets blocked by the plate in the flipped-up position, looks horrible. I may just get it mounted on the bottom as originally planned. They donít think the bracket will stick out much after all.

I think the Show and Go turned out nice. I just need to be careful because of the low clearance.

Alternative - STO N SHO (need help from San Jose CA)

Funny, I just posted this on amggtforum, sorry for cross posting here.

For those looking for an alternative, I did some research and there are no sto n sho hidden front plate bracket for the AMG GT. However, that company is more than willing to develop one, if someone in the San Jose CA area can swing by their shop, so they can measure it. If you can do this, for the team... call Uri, below. If you do, please reply here, so we all know we can expect the plate bracket to be available soon. Thanks.

For those of you who are interested, the actual manufacturer for my front license frame is Race Sport. They label it as their "Hide-A-Way-Man" plate frame.
