In Florida, they are only required to have plates on the rear of the car and not the front so our car had just a nice clean white bumper. I did a lot of searching on the internet to find out how to put one of these on and there are various kits and lots of people talking about being careful drilling in to your bumper etc.
Janet called the local BMW dealer which in the western suburbs of Minneapolis is BMW of Minnetonka. I’ve purchased a couple of cars from them in the past. They are great, but having a BMW dealer do anything is usually on the expensive side. I figured it would be $200 to install the plate, but when Janet called them, they said they put them on complementary which was fantastic! We still had to buy the license plate frame or mount, but they installed in very quickly for her and she was out the door for $65!
I wanted to publish this just in case there are others of you who are here in the Twin Cities metro and perhaps purchased a BMW from Florida or one of the other states that doesn’t require a front license plate and you need it installed here in MN before you get a ticket.
Thanks BMW of Minnetonka for your very courteous service!
