I think you're talking about a license plate frame. Just a clean & simple black metal one from Autozone. They're less than $10. No point in spending $35 for one at the dealership.

Check out mine...

don't have a pick of mine, but it's a simple cheap black plastic for $1.50 at pep boys. I was looking for black metal, but all they had were black metal cheese with flames, skulls, etc. This plastic one is actually very nice - fits 4 screws and has flush-fitting black screw caps, all edges are rounded.

I have one of those "autozone" type black metal frames and I've only had it for about 3 months and it's already really faded. The black looks more like a light brown now. You can get either an ACS frame or an BMW logo frame off ebay for $15-20...but I'm unsure of the quality.

They are MASS produced and are generic, untill a cheapo BMW emblem is put on them. The eBay ones are junk. Get a simple one like Mikey-Fresh, or a nice plain BMW one.

The simpler and the lighter the better. Consider
good quality transparent plastic cover with or
without trafficam block.

When I first bought my car, it had a Lexus plate on it because it was from a Lexus lot.

You're getting a double picture because you used both the image attachment tool and the link to an offsite hosted image. You just have to do one, not both.

I bought a cheap, black plastic frame at Pep Boys for like ten bucks. Works perfecetly. Even has little plastic caps to cover up the screws.

I don't like plates that have the name of the car manufacturer on it. How many times do you need your car badged? (Pontiac)
