If you are looking to purchase, or just picked up your brand new Subaru wrx/sti and plan on purchasing a license plate relocator (like me), please purchase the relocator asap or run the risk of driving around without any front plates. I've had my car for about 5 months and plates for 4 and just today when i switched out the dealer plate frame for a different one, i notice that at the bottom of the mount on the bumper are about 4 spots where oem paint is missing. Looks like from the rubbing the plate does to the bumper at speed. It looks pretty bad, makes me not want to get the relocate kit any more. Even if you werent planning on getting the relocate kit but still want a bumper as clean as possible i suggest putting some painters tape or something under there to absorb the contact from the plate.
Sorry if this was innapropriate, just felt like i needed to share.
