Smile Euro Front License Plates

hey guys I was wondering of putting on Euro plates on my car, but i didn't want to drill holes on the front bumper cause I like the fact of not having holes there. Or do i have to order the euro frame and stuff and maybe install it that way. So any suggestions on how i should do it?

Do you live in Europe?

If the answer is no then putting Euro plates on is gay

my suggestion is to not do it if cops around your area are anal about front license plates (or lack thereof)... it would just catch their attention more if they see a euro plate in front of AW car like yours.

Wouldn't you need to make holes on the bumper to get the frame on anyway? If you don't want holes, there is no way to put any kind of plates on, except for double sided tape.

Re: Euro plates...do what you want...its your car, and if it makes you feel good, just do it!

Putting Euro plates on doesn't make it exclusive or make people look at you differently. If you love the culture, people, and country, then move to Europe

To each his own, but this is my opinion. Yes, their plates look better, but your car is in America.

I wholeheartedly agree.......tacky to say the least.....

opinions are like assholes. Everyone has one and theyre all different.

My front bumper was already drilled. So i swapped the US plate holder and put a Euro spec holder on the front. The plate I had on my car when I was in the army (US) in Gerrmany is on the front of my car and I happen to like it.

EASY!!!! Use Velcro!!! You can get it at walmart in the fabric section. Get the velcro with the adhesive backing and just stick it on your bumper. This allows you to mount the plate without drilling holes and without the mess of double sided tape. stick one side on the plate, and the other side to the bumper. It comes in 3x (2.5" x 6") pieces. More than enough to keep a license plate on ALSO, it only cost about 3 bucks

BTW: my car was a european delivery

hahaha, I just searched "gay euro plates"

But in all fairness to the OP, he didn't ask our opinions.
Not my style at all but do what you want. It's your whip.

3M Double sided tape is the way to go. This is what BMW uses to adhere the plates to Euro Delivered vehicles without drilling holes.
