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.
