You should have looked into Gominigo.com they sell something similar but looks like nicer quality and $30-$40 cheaper. GLWS though.

Cal1 Beem1n - that's way cheaper than ckyw113 suggestion, but still 3-4 times
higher than this license plate holder. You would be able to hook up a small
family with 3 to 4 vehicles and still have change for the cheap bubble gum.

thanks for the link.

Cal1 Beem1n - Thanks for the suggestion! I actually bought the Gominigo part for $70~ + shipping. It looks great. I originally purchased the CP-E part because it is a better designed part but unfortunately it just didn't fit.

FrankiE90 - You are definitely right that the autozone part is way cheaper but I didn't have the time nor the patience to build my own using th autozone part. It did come across my mind...

Thanks all!

I just found this thread today and went out to buy the bracket. Paint and install only took 40 mins. Looks great!

Thanks

holds on like a champ , i'm going pad/rubber stopper behind the plate
so it doesnt' f up the paint/clear bra.

and the cool part is when i don't want to run the plate/
you can remove the two bolts on the bracket leaving just the small
upper bracket which u wont see.
Hi Frankie!

Any recommendation on what paint to use?

I am putting this bracket on my new E90. Very excited about my possibly cheapest mod . lol

Thanks for this wonderfully detailed thread.

Painting the bracket

Frankie90,

I like your solution to the front plate. I picked up the bracket at Autozone and I want to paint it black (or treat it in some way). However, I am concerned that paint will not stick to the metal which has a polishe, mirror finish. What has been your experience? Is the paint holding up? Did you use a black primer? A primer followed by a top coat of black enamel? What brand(s).

Does the plate flop around at all or is it solid?
Tag,

I noticed you also have a 335is. The bumper on our cars are different that the one on Frankie's e90.

Did you mount your plate yet? Any problems? Did you use the self-tapping screws?

Yeah, the original write up I did in this thread was on my previous 335i but I did mount the same license plate bracket on my 335is. It pretty much went in the same as my last car. I did use self tapping screws but you still need to get a small drill bit and start off a hole by hand, DO NOT USE A DRILL. Make sure the bit is smaller than the threads of the self tapping screws or else the hole will be too big for them to bite into the bumper. I tried without making a pilot hole first but it just wasn't working out. The plastic is not like wood or metal, it's too slippery for the self tapping screws to really grab hold.
