Agree. The off-center look is odd-looking. I drove w/o front plate for quite a while; got tired of getting tickets so decided to drill and install plates.
You can install the (centered) plates directly below the bumper. IMO Looks better that way.

I would rather drill than offset to the side. Offset disturbs my feng shui (sp?) big time.

The sticker copy is a great idea!

The 991 will look pretty much the same. They have a totally different tow hook on the new model . I should get the new bolt from my machine shop later this week and post some photos then. If you have any questions you can contact me directly at :

I'm hoping to mount mine there also. The 997S has a cooler there but the 991 is just waiting for it to happen.

this is great, but you must bring it to a professional to cut out inserts to fit the plate and motor, or try puting it under the car, but everytime you go up a hill, or go over a bump in the parking lot, it scraps , I learned the hard way, by the second week my plate was all scraped up and I needed new plates. Even though when done professionally it comes out nice, like in the above BMW link above...
