Where can I get a cheap tow hook plate holder?

Not looking to spend 100 bucks on a piece of metal.

Just make sure that you don't get the longer ones that stick out too much.

Yeah I am trying to avoid those but it is always hard to tell from pictures.

Deceptive advertising. The picture makes it look like this mount rests close to your bumper but this sticks out about a foot from your bumper and looks hideous.

They look terrible and non-symmetrical.

I have a brand new original opened box V1 Rho-Plate for sale $54.00 Shipped!
All contents in the box are factory sealed, instructions included, all in its original packaging.
Model # is RPBW01, application 2006-2011 E90. (Short Shaft)

Never was installed on my then new E90, Prep man did not see the box the salesman left in the trunk.
He drilled holes in my bumper & mounted the factory bracket!

This kit has never been mounted or used! it is 100% complete

You can see the V1 Rho-Plate here on the Rho-Plate site.
The mount shaft shown on the site is the long one, The kit I have is a short shaft spun aluminum, silver (not black as shown in photo).
Other than that, The contents & plate you see in the photo are what is in this high quality kit.

Regards
Steve

This is the one I bought and have on mine.

Its pretty good and it sits very close to the bumper so it doesn't look like its sticking out too much away from the bumper. It includes a spacer though, in case you do want it to be much farther from the bumper.

I needed a replacement for the cover on my rear bumper. Ended up getting an OEM part from my local BMW dealership for $12.00, not painted unfortunately. Ordered a can of spray paint from Bavarian Autosport, $25.00.
