    They come predrilled from factory, better learn to love the look.

    Yep. And they're Euro-spec, so they're useless with U.S. plates.

    If you choose to run the front plate on the front bumper, you will need to drill two new holes...

    Plate relocator looks ugly.

    Zax: why drill new holes? Huh?

    big holes are the eurospec and come standard, small holes are for the US plates and are drilled by the dealership if front plates are required in your state.

    There's also a Totsubo bracket that you can buy if you dont want to drill new holes, but overpriced. If you dont need a plate I suggest you just buy some nylon hole plugs from a hardware store and use some touch-up paint. cAs on iwsti did it and I think it looks pretty clean.

    I like the function over the form for the Grimmspeed mount. It's nice to be able to remove it fairly easily in case you want to take pictures or if you move to a state that doesnt require the front plates.

    Right now I have two brackets that I'm going to try, Grimmspeed and Skene Design. I think I'm going to go with the Skene Design bracket which is installed under the typical mounting position. It's screwed under so that are no visible holes.

    Yeah... I don't want them to drill holes in my bumper. My buddy is a mechanic at the dealership I ordered my car from and I'm going to see what he can do to make sure they do NOT drill holes!

    I'll be doing the same thing. My father-in-law is my salesperson so I think I can make that happen.

    I just told my salesperson that I have my own undermounting bracket that Id take care of myself, and not to drill the holes. Worked for me, I still haven't gotten around to installing it.

    I had the pleasure of hitting up a local autocross event Saturday and I took some video. Please don't reply back telling me how bad I am at driving. It was my first time and in a car that I'm still getting used to.
