I know im not a resident expert here but, what I have gathers myself when bought my F30 as well as other people is there isn't an easy way around that.

Mainly I hear peopel talk about how to fill in the holes after they were forced to drill them.

If you or anyone else has any idea's how to do this please let me know. cuase I would like to save someone else's car I couldnt even watch when the dealer drilled into mine.

Well basically from what I've found the two main options we have our 1, using the tow hook mount location. The link below is the only one I've found to have a bracket for a Euro style plate. I may use this one...still not sure how I feel about it looking there.

or 2, tapping it using a strong automotive tape like this one. http://www.amazon.com/3M-Company-Mol.../dp/B001B0QC3M

Many have had great results using this tape and it seems to hold well. Most say they have had it on for a while but it rains a lot here and I worry about it falling off some random day....that would suck!

One last option I didn't use in the main two because require drilling, just at a location where you can't or will never see it. Is this one.

Hope this helped.

I have my front plate taped on with 3M tape and I am here in Germany. Anyway it is good stuff and will hold up in wet climates.

BMW taped mine when I picked it up at the Welt. They told me check it every year to ensure the hold is still good.

Both my 335is and my wife's 328i are taped on with 3M taped. Thank god the dealership didn't screw them beforehand - PA doesn't have a front plate law and I'd be pissed when I would go back to the states.

Very helpful to know. I plan on picking mine up at Welt in May and I don't want holes drilled.
Thanks
