Tow hook license plate holders?

Hey guys,

I live in SoCal, never had a front license plate, but last week my friend for pulled over for no front license plate and received a $170-ish fine... So now I am paranoid.

Which tow hooks do you recommend?
I heard good things about the CP-E and the U.S. Mill Works.

CP-E: http://www.cp-e.com/products/bmw-335...335i-towplate™
U.S. Mill Works: http://www.usmillworks.com/bmw_front..._tow_hook.html


Does this CP-E TowPlate fit the 2011 bmw 335i coupe?

Thanks!

Why not get one from a Bimmerfest sponsor -

The ones I have seen are adjustable to fit any car. The tow hook is the same size on all modern BMWs.

Ohh! Thanks! I didn't even know about the sponsors page!

Do you have a recommendation for the brackets? Or are they all about the same?

There are some variations in the design but they all seem to work about the same from what I've seen. I do not have a recommendation on a brand/vendor but all of the sponsors sell quality parts and this is rather basic so I don't think you can go wrong.

First time I hear of CP-E. When I looked at this for myself a while back, US Millworks seemed most versatile (in terms of offset mounting options). I have no complaints, hardware is extremely sturdy, and certainly will last longer than any other part of the car
