Question Tow hook front license plate holder recommendation needed

I am thinking about getting a tow hook front license plate holder/bracket for my E60 550i with M-Sport bumper and PDC. Does anyone have any recommendations? I have narrowed my choices between the product from Turner Motorsport (turnermotorsport.com) and Rho-plate (Rhoplate.com). Has anyone had any experience with these 2 different mounting brackets? Do they interfere with the PDC?
After adding shipping they both end up being around the same cost ($73.60 for Turner Motorsport and $72.00 for Rho-plate)

Thanks for your help!

Have you looked at this one? http://www.skene.org/bmw/plate/ I personally think this looks a bit nicer than the tow hook mounted holders.

Hi Keith, thanks for the reply. I saw that one as well and although it places the plate in the center, you still have to drill into the bumper. I also like the offset of the tow hook placement.
