That is an authentic Ford Mustang GT license plate frame purchased at Local Ford dealer (trademark GT logo).

Speaking of frames, been driving the car for 2 weeks now and finally my NJ plates came in the other day but like a momo I'm just realizing now that I have nothing in the front to mount the plates to! anyone know of a mount I can buy? it doesn't have to be CX-5 specific does it? how I missed this small detail is beyond me.

Edit: Just went outside and examined the Bumper area, I see 4 little indents there. DO I have to drill into the bumper? I really didn't want to do that. There should be a plastic bracket. I'm searching but I can't find anything?

Yeah, I'm pretty sure you just drill into the bumper.

Yes, no bracket for front plate in US. 2 holes and a flat section on bumper for plate by design.

(Not all states require a front plate, but those that do all have the same universal size plate)

Thanks guys, guess I got no choice. Gonna have to take the drill out and install these suckers that way.

Dealer will do it for free. For now enjoy clean look of no plate.
