Sorry to beat this dead horse, but where can I find the braket to mount a europlate on the front of my 2k2 Jetta? the one on autoplates.com does not look like it would work on our cars, because our buper holes are resessed into the bumper at least in California?

Re: europlate braket, where to find? (MK4ryan)

The euro plate holder doesn't use the same holes at the US one. You will have to do more drilling. There's only one version of the euro plate holder, the one autoplates.com sells.

You can plug the holes in the front bumper with a (cheap but effective) plug from Lowe's or The Home Depot, or you can plug them with a (more expensive) plug from http://www.bumperplugs.com. You can then screw the European plateholder in wherever you'd like.
You can order a holder from http://www.driversfound.com/gak/gakprod1.htm. You'll note that it has many different holes you can use.
I had a German dealer plateholder on the front and used the same mounting location as the US plateholder, as I found holes on the German holder that lined up nicely. You can find various German plateholders on eBay (with a plate you might or might not want to keep) at http://cq-search.ebay.com/search/se...ty=MetaEndSort&query=+german++license++frame*. Now I've gone back to the Nevada plate on the front after a policeman said something about the German plate. (No ticket, though!)
