I've done it, there is piece that you can buy on bavauto.com...

part number: 51111977306 Its called a "Front bumper license plate replacement strip"

For like $10.00 its hella worth it cause i drove around with my plate off for a while and it looks bad, so... Its cool cause if you ever want to put you front plate on again, you just take this peice out and put the other one on.

Thats it! Enjoy!

It pops out. You gotta screw out the liscense plate screws and I think there is another screw behind the plate base then slowly pry it off. Bav Auto sells the plastic strip that replaces the plate holder for like $20.

BTW...everything always sound easier than it is when it comes to E36 cars. you'll probably spend a few hours trying to pry that thing off.

Good luck!
