Front license plate holder '06 E61?

Forgive me if this is the wrong place to ask, but my E61 came without a front license plate holder and TX requires one. I have issues with drilling into the moulding on my bumper, anyone have one they want to sell me or recommend a site?
Thanks

Thanks TL003. Actually those tow holders IMO are not attractive. I just want a standard plate holder NOT at dealership cost (+$80).

The standard BMW plate holder requires drilling. So does this one http://www.skene.org/bmw/plate/ but the drilling is under the bumper where you can't see it. I agree that the tow hook holders look a bit cheesy.

Well not sure how strict they are in TX, but Ct has the same law I've had a bunch of cars none with a front plate, only once has a cop mentioned it to me.. And that was at a car meet were guys got a bit rowdy and cops showed up.. I keep the plate in the trunk so if I have to pop it on I can..

Good luck ..
