Dealer should have them. I don't know of anyone with extra license plate brackets. I had mine replaced also.

Looking for the same thing! Bought mine used and the dealer just put on the plates with 2 large screws. :-(

Bought a nice smoked cover and when I went to replace with black bolts, all the threads are screwed up. Looks like I'll be making a trip to the dealer as well.

Yeah same thing here. It about 30 bucks I think on getbmwparts.com it's about 25 bucks. I'll probably get it from a dealer since I can get a discount

Replaced mine also - it never ceases to amaze me the 'quality' of German engineering

I've been driving for 37 yrs now, owned more cars that I can remember, each one had a simple design of plastic inserts that plate screws into - never a problem. And even if one did strip out - it's like $1 to get new ones...

But no, BMW has a 'better' idea - lets make an additional bracket, that needs to be screwed to car, then the plate screws to that, with metric fine threaded bolts that can only be a certain length.

Then comes the first winter you own the car, in Spring the bolts are rusted into the bracket so you can't even get the friggen plate off, & of course you can't get the bracket off either because those screws are behind the plate...

Maybe they should go back to simpler/cheaper ways of doing things like they have been done successfully for 100 yrs to save $$, instead of deleting oil dipsticks, spare tires & such.


Make sure once you get the new bracket - lightly coat the plate screws with anti-seize before installing - you'll thank yourself next time you need to remove the plate

Lol I know I x can't even take my plate off I'll probably have to rip it out of the frame. Also when you try to take it out it just scraps the paint under lol. It's the small things that count

Hey, I have a bracket that I just took off my 335i last week. One of the holes is completely shot, but the other 3 are fine and it should be fine for holding on your plate. I'd sell cheap, just enough to make it worth my time and shipping, PM me if interested.

When I bought my car it did not have the bracket either. Went to Napa Auto and bought some plastic threads to toss in the holes and a generic plate mount all for around 10 bux. worked perfect and there is really no way to tell the difference.
