US License plate mount for m-tech2

Got pulled over for not showing my license plate.
I got mtech2 from ddm and was wondering if license plate mounts from other sellers (khoalty, ecs, etc) will mount.

do you have the coupe version or sedan? and yes if your talking about the mold for the front they should all fit universally. but you could always get the tow hook license plate holder.

If you're talking about the strip for the front of the bumper just find the part number on realoem. I would probably suggest the tow hook mount though.

It looks kinda cool but I haven't seen enough pictures of it mounted on sedan to be sure about the end result looks

part number65-000

some people also customly make them by simply buying the parts from home depot which still looks good.

I got two tickets for no license plate in one week in downtown Portland. Now I try and not park there. Get a tow hook one! That's what I'll be doing.

same in texas i had to drive through a mob of cops... it was in a bad part of town and they were searching some cars. as i was about to turn the corner to leave the street, next thing one cop tapped on my car and told me to reverse... i was like wtf i do wrong and for them its rare to see a 19yo(now 21 ) at the time in a bmw.. so just cus i had some people in the car they decided to search my car, ran all our id's. couldnt find anything so they hit me on not having a front plate... pretty much pissed me off since i was late to a friends graduation ceremony...

Alright, I guess I could try tow hook license plate.

It's annoying how I didn't get pulled over in town where at least 10 cops could see missing license plate.
But cops out of town will pull you for anything.
