Show and Go lFront License Plate

Got my first 335i M Sport this month and don't want to put the typical front license plate holder on the front end. Anyone install a motorized hideaway front license plate?

I've seen this on a CTS-V and it was really cool.

That is a bit tricky. I used a rubber expandable plug in the towing hole to mount mine. You need to move it left so as not to interfere with the sensor.

Thanks for sharing!
