Some people have, but sometimes the officer says it is not permanent and rejects it.

I have the Skene design since all the small town cops love to pull you over for anything here in Texas. When I originally got pulled over for a missing plate I told him there was no way I was drilling into that bumper and I had a bracket on the way, which I did. He laughed and agreed. Just let me off with a warning. This is the only picture from the front I have.

Another option is the Sto-and-show bracket. It does reduce about 0.5 inches of ground clearance, but I haven’t had any issues yet.

Very easy to install, and to insert/remove the plate. I have to drive to LA occasionally for work, and they are a real pain about the front plate. With this bracket, it’s simple to insert the plate before heading out to LA, then I remove it when I get back.

I have a US Millworks plate holder that attaches to the towhook location. Overall, I'm quite pleased with it.

Saw a guy at a meet with a Targa 4s with this holder on. Looked really cool. When he parked on the street he just pulled it out and there was his plate.

How do I remove the license plate bracket blocks from the front bumper?

If you mount your front plate off center the asymmetry will pull a viewers eye right to it. My recently purchased second gen 997 came with a contour fitting plate holder screwed to the car. If I remove it the two holes remain. so I run the front plate. My previous 993 had no holes drilled so I kept the plate under the seat. In Oregon, I think that no front plate gets a $400.00 ticket. This will only happen if you get stopped for speeding. I have been lucky in that regard. My only speeding ticket was in a Jeep. ???.

Another vote for the Skene Design bracket. I can remove the plate in less then 5 min and you cant see the small mount when the plate is removed.

Ordered Skene today. The Tow hook was just not my cup o' tea.
Will have a Tow Hook for sale.
