    If thats the case I'm definitely skipping $139.95 bracket! Also, I wonder if this interferes with the battery cooling motorized vents. It seams to bolt onto those vents. Seems inadvisable to me.

    Then vents moving:

    $25 for every fixable offense in Cali since around 2013 I think.

    I’ve had like 20+ fix it tickets over the last 15 years. lol. Various things like no front plate, driver/passenger tinted windows, tinted tailights, tinted windshield.

    The market will decide - don't worry. :)
    The stock bracket requires "taping" the bracket to the painted from bumper - this does not. Whether or not somebody perceives this as "better" is left to each individual to decide.

    If anyone purchases one of these and wouldn't mind posting some photos of it post-install, I'd appreciate it.

    I'm curious if the install is as easy as it is on the S or X as well as where it sits when mounted. A lot of the photos for this product are photoshopped and I've only seen one actual 3 with this mounted on it.

    holy cow, $120-135 for a license plate holder? I get that they have to recoup materials and development cost, but that still seems excessive. I plan to keep this car a long time and wont be moving out of my "front license plate" state so never mind. I will have them stick on the factory one with the 3M tape and call it good. :-( Too bad bc I was super excited about this product.
