Front License Plate USA Only

I've seen a few threads on here re a front license plate bracket but I still haven't found a viable solution.

Dealer sold it to me (2014) without a bracket. Front license plates are required in my state (technically they [dealer] need to remedy this).

However, my ride has Parking Assist, Blind spot monitoring, etc... and I can't even find a place for a bracket that doesn't interfere with either the PA sensors OR airflow to the cooling system. (I know, if I am not on the track the lower cooler probably can stand to be covered but this is my story for the PO-PO so I am sticking to it).

Anyone find a workable solution? I have tinted windows all around (also illegal in my state) so I am already a Po-Po magnet should they want to pull me.


My two loves...

the RHO plate bracket uses the tow hook mount and is very adjustable. You could run that, but it might have to use the upper mounts of it to keep it away from the parking sensors, which would look a little weird maybe. I've seen some mounts that go in the middle though and drill from the bottom (top part of the lower grille) so you don't have ugly holes in the front. I'm just not too familiar with those.

The factory bracket should be the best solution.

Personally I use the RHO V2 kit on my 507 and have had no issues at all, it's available with an extension kit to clear the parking sensors and is a very high quality kit with a lot of room for adjustment so you can place it just as you wish. You can take a look at it here (https://www.rho-plate.com/pages/rho-plate-v2).
Cheers.

I've used Skeen Design bracket on previous Porsche and AMGs, just got a 2019 C43 and am ordering one for it. They mount under the front spoiler/fascia with tape and 2 tiny screws that go in from the bottom so they don't mess up the fascia. They are fully adjustable so you can move the plate up or down as you want for looks. I think they're $49 and really top quality machined aluminum. I mounted mine under the lowest part and had the lower edge of the license plate at the same level as the lower spoiler so if indeed I did hit a curb the license plate hit first and saved the spoiler edge. https://skenebrackets.com/. On my last car I actually went front plate-less and kept the plate mounted to the bracket in the trunk and was prepared to tell them that I just got it back from the body shop and had not had time to re-install the plate, never had to use the story though.

My state requires front plate too. In the past ten years, I've been pulled over about 10-15 times, zero tickets for moving violations, only one ticket for no front plate. Just don't do anything stupid, and be polite. You'll be okay without a front plate.

That's what I am thinking. I was leaning towards the Skene but damn the plates do bugger up the front of the car...

I'll just keep the front plate handy and hope the cop isn't a douchebag. Fortunately I don't drink so I don't have to worry about getting pulled at a 'bad' time

Yeah, when I lived in VA (VA Beach) I don't think they were bad about no front plates. I had to run mine though because they wouldn't let you on base without your front plate if you were registered in VA.

Put as license on the dog, forget the car. Keep your plate in your trunk, if you get pulled over, make excuse dealer forgot to put a bracket on. In my state, it's only a $100 fine; worth it IMO!
