I searched everywhere, high and low for this. I eventually got it off of a forum member here. They can only be ordered from Germany, so be prepared to pay out the ass for shipping. BMWNA cannot order items directly from the Euro market, but they can see them in stock.

I used to have that generic Euro plate holder, but it looked bad. Never fit right at all and was loose in the bumper. OE really is the best way to go, it looks really great and conforms to the bumper.





You can get them painted, but is it really worth the $30 to do that?

OP, try bavauto.com. You don't have to order from Europe. I believe it's about 25 bucks.

Yeah give it a shot. I ordered it from a vendor here (I want to say it was BavAuto, but maybe someone else?), and I got an email from them about a week later saying they were going to have to bump up my shipping a good $25 because it was a special order. Just call and see if they actually have it in stock.

I feel like coupe plate holders might be more difficult to source.

okay this is weird, i already have my car saved on the website, but when i search that product number, it says that that part isnt compatible with my car. which is strange because i thought those brackets were universal among cars with the black bumper trim?maybe im wrong

Hmm that is strange. When I search it and put your model in it comes up. It should still work as bumper trim is universal between sedans.
