    What's the consensus on best towhook license plate frame for the B9 S5/S5 SB?

    Photos would be appreciated...damn Virginia and their front plate laws.

    I used Rho V2 on one of mine and worked great. They have on for the S5.

    I've used a US millworks one on my car for a while and eventually decided to just run the car plateless. The mount is good nonetheless if you decide you must run it. I also have it for sale if interested.

    I've used these on my previous Porsches and AMGs, now waiting on a S5 Sportback. https://skenebrackets.com/ ,really high quality, Easy to install, it's held to the bottom of the front Fascia with some tiny screws but the real holding is some strong double faced tape. When you remove it you can't see the screws holes. Looks a lot nicer to me than the tow hook ones. I've actually moved it along 3 different cars so far. Will probably buy a new one for the S5. Funny, had some front end damage on my last AMG and after it was fixed I just put the plate and bent bracket in the rear and was prepared to tell the cop if I was stopped that it was damaged and I ordered a new one......never had to as never got stopped but I thought it gave me at least a talking point of getting out the ticket as Texas is also a 2 plate state and they use it as an excuse to stop you. I highly recommend it.

    Looks like the one here will block at least one proximity sensor, ya?

    Really digging the magnet option. The mounts look very subtle and I can take the plate on/off with ease.

    Also, for me, I much prefer the plate to be centered when Iím - as opposed to mounted where the tow hook is located.
