Unless they used an adhesive like they do with the badging. Personally, I wish my dealership hadn't drilled my front bumper because I don't use my front license plate... apparently the cops around here just don't care. It look so much better without the plates there, but the two holes kind of kill it...the bracket if it existed would bolt/screw in to the same exact markings on the front bumper that the plate mounts to directly.....
Well, Hondas and Acuras do have an 'L' bracket that is bolted underneath the upper part of the bumper (with 2 bolts), BUT they're also supplied with 2 self-tapping screws to drill the bumper through the bracket. Most dealers are smart enough to just attach the brackets with the 2 bolts, but I had to refuse delivery of an MDX when the bozos drilled the bumper even when I ordered NOT to mount the bracket at all. The good thing about the 'L' bracket is Honda/Acura bumpers DO NOT have the dimples since the bracket's position is dictated by the bolts underneath the bumper. The good news is the dimples are pretty much invisible on the Sonata, unless you look hard where they are. Take care.I saw my friend's Accura TL. He has a L-shape license plate bracket. So he doesn't have two front holes, he has two hidden holes instead. I wish I knew it before I picked up my car.
I don't see them ever changing the law here in Illinois. With all the red light cameras and photo speed traps it would make no sense. Matter of fact, I see the lure of extra revenue from these abominations changing the laws in the other direction in states that don't require front plates now.Currently here in Illinois Front plates are required by law but there is some talk about eliminating that requirement, that means I will have two holes in my front bumper that will need to be filled,
when that day comes I guess I will have to get some type of Custom Novelty plate maybe something that say's " YES IT'S A HYUNDAI " :grin:
