    Thanks, yeah this plate looks nicer than the knock-offs. I know you can't really see it once installed, but still...

    Thankfully there was very minor damage. Daughter's car got scuffed a little, and wife's car just needed a refinish on the rear bumper.
    Oh man... I can so see my wife and daughter doing that (in like 12 years, but yeah). My condolences. Which reminds me I need to get the bumper fixed on the 9.

    One thing to note is that if you've got the front parking sensors, the plate mount can trip the sensor that's right beside it. I have it mounted as far away from the sensor as possible, but I have to tilt the plate just a tiny bit to make sure it isn't in the sensor's "cone of vision". I considered this when shopping for a solution and the Rho-plate seemed to be the only tow-hook mounted product that provided the least risk of this happening.

    I wondered about that. Good information, thanks.

    Thanks so much AP3President for sharing photos and the link to the product. What sort of thread locker did you use?

    So it looks like with the 30mm spacers, the front wheels stick out just a tick. Is that correct?
