Front license plate holder - best options?

We are titleing our 2010 BMW 328i convertible tomorrow and wonder what options are available for front licence plate holder. I hate to put screws in the front body panel. Please share any ideas or options.
Thanks

I'm from VA and they were pretty strict about front plates. Are they still? I think if you have to mount it, I'd use the regular mount that comes with the car. The tow hook one, and others like that, are good if you just use it to satisfy fixit tickets. IMO the regular mount looks best if you plan on leaving it on.

Skene Design makes a very nice solution. I think the tow hook solution looks weird due to the off center mounting of the plate.

+1 Skene Design. A bit pricey, but worth it.

My used car came with screw holes already so installed the universal mount from autozone. The dealership has the proper mounts for $50+

In VA, went through the same dilemma. Off center was a consideration for about 10 sec till I saw it taped to the bumper so I went with the dealer installed brace which as braces go was pretty innocuous. VA is a tough state to go without front plates, I rarely see anyone instate w/o both.

Haven't had a front plate on any of my Bimmers since 2004...Zero tickets and looks soooo clean besides drilling holes in that bumper really really bothers me

i normally prefer no front plates but since mine came with the factory mount and I took it off but it just didn't look right w/o the plate so I put it back on.
