Default No drill front licence plate mount

Hi all, has anyone installed the no drill front licence plate (mount via tow hook receptacle) on a front parking sensor equipped 991 and it DOES NOT cause any interference?

Most manufacturers state that "not compatible with front parking sensor", however this plate mount has many holes that allow you to offset the plate location, so what if I offset the plate to the very far side towards centre bumper direction would I be able to clear the parking sensor interference?

I searched this topic but unfortunately no one yet mentioned this, probably not on front parking sensor equipped 991. Thanks.

Hi bernpep,

In terms of the skene mount, what size bracket are you using for the 991. I've read previously that the smallest bracket was too small, but the 'small' bracket works, but that the 'medium' would probably be perfect.

Any thoughts?

Thanks.
Kevin

You probably read that from me on 6Speed. Take note, that my comments in that thread were specifically for my car which has the Sport Design front bumper.

The Skene website did not have a size for that option. I believe they do have a listed and confirmed size for the 991 standard front bumper, though.

Yes, it was you! I am going SportDesign as well. I believe you were using small, but mentioned that medium might be optimal???

Hi Kevin, The extra short is perfect for a standard 911 front end. It lets me place the plate so that it fit entirely in front of the spot of the black plastic void thereby eliminating contact with the painted surface. I also used a real carbon fiber plate frame that BMW makes. Very light + no scuffing

I have Sport Design front/rear spoilers. My dealer installed the Skene using the "short" not the shortest. Looks great.

Thanks, John! If you don't mind, do you have any pictures with the front plate?

Thanks.

I have one not so good picture but my upload failed. It's probably too big but I have no idea how to upload obviously.

We're working on an alternative mount system, and have been in beta testing for a few months. Hope to be able to show it very soon. Discreet, simple, easy install, works well on our test vehicles (Porsche and others) thus far.

Hope to see it very soon. Hope there are no holes needed. Hope it works with parking sensors, too. If so, I'm buying.

If you need a Beta tester for a 981, let me know. Should have it by late May.
