Now, post some photos of your car please!

Haha, I was going to do some car photography stuff first but I guess I can post a simple image

Yep, I mean it's only a temporary license plate anyways but i still plan on not putting the front plates. My current car doesn't have one haha.


Also I forgot to mention, make sure you get the Polishing Cloth (I didn't get mine). I've seen YouTube reviews that says it comes with the cloth. Oh and my XC40 didn't come with the rubber Swedish flag outside. I think it's a limited edition thing.

My biggest problem with front plates is the mounting hardware. I won't mind using a vinyl based license plate that can stick onto the front end.

Seen some supercars like that but apparently its still illegal and cops will bother you.

The front plate mount on my last car (2016 Audi S3) was easily removable, no drilling, so I removed it and installed a tow hook mount with quick release. I normally didnít have front plate, and only put it on when I parked on the street. It worked okay but was slightly annoying to do all that. They do give tickets for not having front plates here, and itís like $160 or something ridiculous. The S3 just looks so bad with one.

With the XC40 I might just leave it on, especially if holes are drilled into the bumper. Iíll get a license plate frames to replace the dealer ones.

I normally don't park on the street so cops haven't bothered me with it yet, but I'll probably install the license plate mount once I get my real license plate. BTW, there's no holes for the front license plate mount, but you can tell where to drill/mount it though (there's a couple of recessed spots).
