Lots of discussion on R171 on the topic, none in R170?

My car has never had a front license plate on it, but since I'm running laser jammers I dont want to give the cops any reason to pull me over. I saw a bracket on ebay for over $70 (WHAAAT???)

What have others done to affix a front plate the the R170? I was thinking about getting somerhing like this if it fits:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/UNIVERSAL-FRONT-BUMPER-GUNMETAL-LICENSE-PLATE-RELOCATOR-RELOCATION-BRACKET-/190674594796?pt=Motors_Car_Truck_Parts_Accessories&fits=Model%3ASLK230&hash=item2c65176bec&vxp=mtr#ht_4829wt_1320

I'll have to measure.

the gominigo bracket is the $70 one...yes it is a bit pricey but is very well made of quality stainless components..fits in the tow hook socket...I got one and think it looks great, w/ no bumper holes....

. . . I got one and think it looks great, w/ no bumper holes....
One other reason I leave mine on . . . (If I SCUBA'd more, I'd put a "Diver Down" plate on . . . If I was a Miami (FL) grad, I could put a hurricane flag on it . . . etc., etc. Something that would look good against red of course . . . so I'll just have to keep looking!)

personally I don't care for the offset tag. My car didn't have the bracket nor holes in the bumper so I didn't drill any. I folded a couple metal angles and mounted them through the bolts for the underbody air skirt.
