On the top center of the larger lower grill flat surface section that some people were wondering why it was flat compared to pointy upper bumper region, some thought it was a mismatch of parts.

Dead center, off to the sides, whatever. Who cares?

They'll probably mount it dead center and cover a portion of the lower grille

When I purchased my 2011 last year I did not want holes drilled into the bumper, so I had the dealer install a license plate bracket. It connects underneath the front spoiler.

No license plate, here in illinois at least the police could care less, and most will understand why you WOULDN'T want to drill holes in such a beautiful car keep the brackets and crap in the trunk along with a front license plate, incase a cop does give you a hard time, you can tell him your on your way to do it!

I saw a poor yellow SS that was originally from out of state. The person who had originally mounted the front plate must have used the largest sized screws available because the holes looked huge. Hopefully the owner will get them patched up.

So when I lived in a state that had front plates the dealership usually installed the front holder right away. Do most places do this or do they wait for a customer to request a particular mounting?

If it's a lot car, then the dealer will automatically mount the front plate holder.

If it's a customer order, they will usually ask the customer first...but if you're ordering it, it's best to make sure they know your preference ahead of time

I just couldn't drill holes through that front bumper....I ended up using 4 zip ties. Drilled a couple of small holes in the license plate bracket then ran the zip ties through the front grill. So far so good. I'll replace the zip ties every so often. Tried driving without the front plate but cops like to look for a reason to pull you over.
