Pic Request: E90 Pre-LCI w/ M3 Front Bumper with license plate

I find pics of how the bumper looks on a non-M e90 Sedan. But they never have a license plate on them. Anyone have a pic of one with a plate on it? Hope the plate will help make the M3 bumper on a e90 sedan look a little less 'in your face'.

Actually it looks like there is no license plate holder that fits the M3 bumper unless you get one that goes in the tow hook. Very disappointing.

I hope I can modify my stock plate mount for the M3 bumper. Don't care about drilling holes into the thing, I'd never be removing it.

Thanks, I'll check it out from home. The pics are blocked from the internet I'm on now.

Have a gallery I can check out? Also has anyone tried retrofitting the stock m3 sedan mount on their aftermarket bumper?
