Someone PM'ed me about removing the front license plate holder and I decided to post the solution. It was actually quite easy, but took me awhile to form a game plan. Once I did, I started hacking :P

One thing I realized was that this plate holder cant be removed by brute force. I tried! The clips are an engineering masterpiece. You would likely need to do damage to the bumper or the plastic piece that needs to stay for the euro plate mount. The other option is to remove the whole grill. Eff that.

Directions:
1. order stuff from customeuropeanplates.com
2. Get a 5/8-1" spade drill bit or hole saw
3. Destroy the clips
4. The End. See pics.

just drill anywhere in the corners there, you will mangle the clips even if you partially miss.
