    My wife purchased her 2021 Denali out of state (where no front license plate is required). Here in TX we are suppose to have a front plate... and while I've been driving without one for the last 5 years with zero problem... she's a rule follower.

    So what options outside of the dealer drilling into the bumper have people found?

    Thanks!!!

    The only thing worse than this is buying in a state that DOES require it and you don't want it! They will force you to have it on leaving the lot and mainly, I don't want my front bumper or fascia drilled for one. My state doesn't require it.....

    I'm with you 100%... expect for the part where this is my wife's vehicle and she said "I don't care how it looks, I'm getting a front license plate... so either you figure it out, or I'll just bring it to the dealer and pay whatever they ask for their standard front plate mount/bracket etc."

    On my past Euro cars I've gone no front plate, or tow-hook mounted plate.

    Try this...

    It's called a Show 'n Go Retractable License Plate frame. I have seen these on multiple cars and SUV's at various car shows. It's made by a company called ALTEC Products - http://altecproducts.com/license-plate-frames/

    I have not had a front plate in Texas starting in 1976 with my 280Z ( it would look goofy), my 911 Turbo ( hell no) , about 5-6 more cars/trucks until, I did cave in on my 2013 Tahoe. Prior to that I just carried the front plate with me and if I got stopped I would just show the Officer that i had it but I bought the car/truck and it did not have a front mounting bracket. They would always say " ok, but don't let me see you again with it not on " OK, officer. I know that will not hunt when it comes to your wife's car, so good luck.
