Front License Bracket vice drilling in my MSport

Used a front bracket for a license plate I bought at Autozone. It's only for $9 and work like a charm. I did not drill any hole on my bumper

I just had a motorized plate installed. No holes, no plate but push a button and the plate folds out from under the bumper.

Did the same thing. Just brought the X back from the dealer who mistakenly drilled holes in the front to mount the plate. They were quite accommodating to fill and repair the damage.

More mods to come. Lots of lytes getting upgraded

I purchased the non motorized retractable license plate. Was yours easy to bolt on the bottom?
