Thanks Res0zsfa! I finally got around to installing and this a more robust option for me. Stuck on some thick felt where the frame would contact paint. Also zip tied the top rail to the back plate of frame so it's a bit more secure. Some pics

Nice! I might relocate the metal bar like how you did. Just a bit lazy to take everything off to adjust it. I had to double the foam pads because one was wearing out and was very close to the bumper itself.

I know this is meant for 2017-2019 Type Rs with the fog light grill but using these parts may help for the intercooler grill. Here’s the vid on how it was done.

The best solution is don't run a plate. My state mandates there be a front plate however I've never put one on and never had an issue with police.

I'm currently doing the same because I'm not crazy about any of the options available, except when we do eventually get pulled over it will either be for that reason alone or tacked on to whatever else we did wrong (for me, probably speeding lol).

I bet one fix it ticket annoyance will be enough for me to take the front plate options more seriously. Same how I used to have darker than legal tinted windows prior to getting my waiver for years with no issue....until I finally got pulled over by a cop who cared and had to waste a morning going to traffic court with proof I removed them to avoid points on my insurance.

Not something you want to waste time doing more than once.

I hear you but I imagine if you're polite to the cop they'll take it easy. Then again there's always the risk. Ive been cited twice for no front plate in 20+ years of driving. In both instances I showed up to the courthouse, zip tied it to the grill, handled the ticket, and took the plate back off before I left the parking lot. It ruins the look of cars, I hate it.

TBH I'd be friendly to the guy and eventually ask him to cut you some slack on the front plate. Not a big deal but it's just ugly IMO. Then again you're in MA and I know your state has lots of crazy laws and restrictions but it's worth a shot.

MA state trooper :rolleyes: not suprised. Have had good interactions with most town cops around here but staties always seem to have a stick up their ass.

I pass by at least like 1-2 regular cops a day and have yet to be bothered. In general, most seem way less eager to open the lights now, as I've even blasted by a few I saw last second expecting a guaranteed speeding ticket and they didn't bother lol maybe with covid they're on a more selective schedule.

Yeah the statie now is a cop in my neighborhood in a small north shore town so I can't mess with it. I gotta figure out what to do as I may be picking a CTR up this weekend or next week. Perrin one looks like a pain in the ass and like you said all my older cars it was simple to use tow hook versions of relocation kits

I hear you. I don't like the location of the Perrin one, looks very strange. The best one I saw was one (from EVS? or something like that) which screws into some factory tow hook location behind the bumper. That plate location looks best, problem is you have to cut out a piece of the fog light trim so the tow hook adapter can feed through. It's also like $400+ for the adapter, backing plate, and tow hook package, which I wouldn't mind if it was a perfect no drill, no modification, fully adjustable solution.....but its not so whats the point.

The slybracket one is also ok but don't like the idea of anything, even foam, vibrating against the paint. I also don't feel comfortable having the weight of the plate bracket + plate supported on the flimsy plastic grill for years and years of wind bashing it at high speeds.

So.....for now, no plate is the #1 solution lol

I think you mean RaceENG? and the Perrin one mounts to the tow hook location also

I believe the Perrin one puts the plate right above the passenger side fog light, right? It looks very strange.

Try installing it flipped the other way around so that black horizontal bar isn’t hitting the bumper?

Thanks Res0zsfa,

Just brought out my R since the weather is finally better in Canada. Installed sly brackets and highly recommend it. Zip tied it on the bottom for more support
