2013 E550 4.6L BiTurbo
No drill licence plate mount

Hi everyone.
It's come time time plate my new(ish) car.
In ontario you require a front plate. The car came from Quebec so had non prior.
I am looking for a no drill front licence plate mount for my 2013 e550 (pre-facelift) with front sensors.
My dealer was unable to provide one; the one they did have interfered with the sensors.
Also I need one shippable to Canada.
I am looking at an ijdmtoy one, but I'd really appreciate some insight from anyone with experience.

Thanks

Try CravenSpeed.com. They are located in Portland, Oregon. They make a plate mounting kit that uses the tow hook to attach the unit. I had used their kit on a 2014 GLK.

That is really cool. Wish I had seen this before I drilled holes. You come up with some really good stuff.

Thanks

Hey guys.
Thanks for the great suggestions.
That mustang one looks really creative but I think the cravenspeed one is more what I am looking for.
Going to see if I can order it and get someone to bring it out to me to avoid the thrice-damned shipping charges to get to Canada.
If only the Canadian "Dollar" what still just that...

Thanks again and appreciate any more ideas!

no worries, just make sure that what you'll get wont be in the way of the parktronic (if your car is optioned).

I don't know if the Merc has the ability to screw in a tow eyelet, but on VW's they've used a bracket system that screws in that spot.

Also a good place to mount a GoPro!

The eyelet is probably with your scissor jack in the trunk

Something like this? That looks after market though , my boss is cool with this thing lol

personal opinion: the plate looks kinda too big , even on 5 series , can imagine how big itll look on ours.
and sorry for posting a bmw pics here lol , its just i happened to take these pics couple days ago
