I didn't like how the front license plate bracket ruined the lines of the car so I made a mounting kit to offset the plate to the right and flush with the front bumper.

I just went to Home Depot and found some brackets and bolts and drilled under the bumper.

I think you should move the license plate back to the middle to cover that hole the dealer left.

I thought the factory license plate bracket put a hole in your bumper straight from the factory, so every RSX would have that should you decide to take the OEM bracket out. I'm not sure they would just replace your bumper since that is a factory standard. I could be wrong, just my .02.

The factory license plate braket puts holes in the part of the bumper that faces down. It is never visible unless you are laying under the car. It should not put a hole in the part that faces out. I have not seen another RSX that has the holes facing out.

I like the asymetrical placement but would've mounted it on the other side (personal pref). I don't like the stock placement, too high and too much frontal area, hey us base owners need all the help we can get. I went with a slant placement inside the lower grill to push air throught the engine bay, important when I had my SRI.

Its not like that becasue some states and provinces do not require the front license so they'd have two big holes in their front bumper if that was so....
