    My car, a 1986, 412 Autom. (licensed in NYS), never came with the typical mounting for a front license plate.
    I don't have the American rubber bumper but the original European-style bumper made from metal and in the same color as the car.

    Accordingly, drilling a hole for a bracket in the front bumper is out of the question.

    Going below the front grill in the middle would obstruct the prancing horse which is also not ideal.
    Going left or right from it seems difficult as there is not enough metal to hold up a plate against the elements when driving.


    I have attached a picture of the problem area.

    Predicament - I don't know. However, my ignorance so far was expensive:
    -- $185 (ticket for improper display while parking with lic. plate in front window)
    -- $.. (who knows) summons issued by a bored-to-death Mid Town Tunnel Cop.

    Do you have an idea you can share with me ?

    Maybe you've seen Alex's 400i in NYC, he uses it daily.

    As a matter of fact, he contacted me on this thread.
    I am sure we have a lot in common - and to talk about.
