    My car and the front of my garage had a disagreement and I banged up the front license plate holder on my 2016 Hellcat. The dealer seems to think they are worth $35, and maybe they are, but maybe someone here's got a line on an OEM holder for less. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks ladies and gents!

    Thanks gents!

    For sure I understand wanting to keep the car complete but I was hoping someone had a link to a dealer or something that sold them at a "more reasonable" price.

    Also, as the dealer brought out the drill prior to me driving off the lot, the holes in the grille are already there so I won't be looking for an alternative mounting solution but thanks for the thought.

    There are matching color plugs you can install and then mount this bracket I mentioned. It will work and there are always a way to make it so it really can't be seen.

    I've come across links to those plugs. So the idea is to further drill the existing holes to take the plug or do you just install the plug in the existing hole made by the sheet metal screws? BTW, the holes are in the flat or matte black portion of the bumper cover just below the high gloss paint.

    I'll do an internet search and see what I find! Have a great day!

    This is the cheapest I could find on eBay and I am not sure it will work on your specific Hellcat:

    That doesnt make sense. The factory one should have left holes in the painted part of ur bumper cover if im not mistaken. Higher up. Wonder if urs wasnt a factory bracket to begin with. You would know if urs still has two undrilled dimples in the upper painted part.
