Question Number Plate Surrounds?

Does anyone have any, or a link to any? I've searched but I can't find anything in the UK sections.

I need to replace my numberplates - well, want to they're just looking a bit tired. On previous cars I've had number plate holders which fixed to the car, meaning there were no screws through the plate itself. Does such a thing exist for an E91?

The rear isn't so desperate, 3M tape would suffice, but the front plate needs to curve with the contour of the bumper and I don't think the tape would hold it.

TIA

I use the the usual number plate double sided tape on the curved front without issue.

I always use proper 3M tape and it holds it perfectly and is by far the best way to fix a plate to a car.

If tape works for the front, that's a better solution altogether

Cheers

Tape will hold the front plate with enough strips of the stuff.

in regards to number plate surrounds, some dealers do them, Wood BMW do it and they look pretty good.

Those BMW Motorsport ones look a bit tacky Prefer the main dealer look.

I don't have a E90 but on my E46 I have these, original dealer surrounds but have got the now slightly updated ones they do.
