    Underside of the front plate. It attaches underneath by 2 bolts and with it removed it looks smooth

    No holes through the front bumper plastic? That's fantastic!

    Great picture, glad to have some closure on this topic. Can you take a picture of the front of the bracket? I recall 3 or 4 things that looked like bolts on the front in the center were the plate would be. Those were believed to be bolted through the front and (most) everyone was panicking.

    Sorry that photo for some reason didn't come out but there are no holes in the bumper as you can see here. This car is in Dublin and I was looking at it, popped the trunk and there was the plate bracket.

    Did you take off the plate yourself? I took my car to Dublin and they wouldn't take it off for me but showed me the socket I had to buy to take it off. I just haven't had time to go to home depot assuming they have that special socket

    Yeah. That's what the person at the service center showed me. I'm just too cheap to pay $15 for something I will use once and never again. :) But there seems to be no other choice.
