I purchased a 2015 Avalon out of state where no front license plate is required. It is required in my state so I need to get a front license plate mounting bracket. I know there are plenty of OEM and oem-clone brackets available but I don't want to drill holes into my front bumper. I also don't want to pay $80 one of the machined metal brackets that I've seen which probably cost about $15-$20 to make. If I cannot find a compatible no-drill bracket then I might try making my own using the OEM type.

If you have or know of a no-drill front mount for a 2013-2015 Avalon I would like to know what you have and how it looks.

I appreciate your feedback.

Keep it simple, get a OEM front license plate bracket, Japan basically requires front license plates so having a front license plate does little to diminish how the car looks. If you really want no drill, compare a US and a JP Avalon and see if the JP version comes a hole for a screw in tow hook. If it does, all you gotta do is replace the front bumper cover, the front bumper reinforcement, and maybe the front bumper energy absorber then you can use a screw in license plate mount.

Plenty happy with mine.
