Good looking out

This one can also mount on the under side of the bumper. It comes with self tapping screws but I really didn't want to drill the bumper so I opt for the washers. You should return Skene and cop this

I'm not drilling any part of the bumper. If it comes to it, I'll remove the bumper.

Good option for non-335's.

I wouldn't put one of these on a 335 though unless you like intentionally blocking airflow to the front mount.

It's adjustable, so you can lift it out of the way. The way I have it, is the way the stock plate mounts are positioned so Im not seeing a downside to mounting this on a 335......I did
