In MA where I live front plate is required. I must have told the dealer at least a dozen times that I didn't want my front bumper drilled (and luckily it wasn't) but in certain situations I do need to have a plate on my car.

On my 2019 Daytona I had the Sto-n-Sho plate and I liked the flexibility. When I traded up to the RedEye I figured I could use the same one and, with few modifications, I got it installed today. Once I get my state inspection sticker the plate will go back in the trunk...

Here's what I did:

First, I changed out the hardware to some smaller stainless steel bolts and added some stick-on padding to the back of the frame.

The bolts attaching the lower trim to the bumper are exactly 7 inches apart. On the mount for the 2019 the bolt holes are about 6 1/2. I widened the holes with a drill bit and mounted the bracket with the stock trim bolts in the stock holes.

I decided to put it off-center instead of dead center. I'm sure that will trigger some but I like it. When installed there's just a bit of clearance (this is why there's padding). If I have to keep it on for an extended time I would probably take the padding off to avoid any scratching.

Final thoughts, I would have bought the more recent version that is made specifically for the widebody but sometimes it's more satisfying to engineer a solution from what you have. If you're looking for one of these mounts check out STO N SHO Removable Quick-Release Front License Plate Bracket

I don’t dig the off center deal but am a fan of the device. I’ve got one as well. Beautiful car btw…

I live in NJ where it is mandatory also to have a front plate. I bought the sto n show but never even used it as I just hate the look of the front plate. I don't put the plate on any of my vehicles even my daily Kia Forte GT... never been bothered by the police about it knock on wood. I think it's a small fine you get of they do decide to bug you but it's nothing serious like points.
