There really isn't much to it. There are 2 clips at the bottom of the bracket that insert into the air dam. Then just drive a couple of (ouch) self tapping screws into the indented holes in each of the upper corners of the bracket. Then you can just mount the plate right to the bracket.

I had to put a euro bracket on mine. If I ship this back to the States, I'll have to do some hole patching and repainting. :( My wife suggested I just leave the euro bracket and plate on the front if we end up somewhere that doesn't require a front plate...we'll see when the time comes. Who knows, I may end up with a brand new designo Kupfer (copper in German).

BTW...anyone need a US spec front bracket? It's brand new, I bought it before I found out I had to have euro spec bracket.

Front plate is a necessary evil here also --- I just look at it as a blemish on an otherwise perfect looking body
Well shoot! I got those...on my car too. :biglaugh:
