Default Amg number plate holder

Trying to source the front number plate holder for a CLS W219, 2006 model with the amg front bumper, the bumper was added at some time before my ownership.

No luck on here or an auction site and Mercedes want my first born, which if push comes to shove, well she is 23 !

Is there any difference with the amg number plate holder shape to the standard CLS number plate and if so where can I get one ?

I have the front plate stuck on with tape and it letting the car down.

Thanks

Thanks for the quick reply

I phoned the local Mercedes branch today and they said they could supply the part for 83 + vat, that is only the front number plate holder.

Anyone else stock item 110 ?

Thanks

I have actually removed mine! Its an awful large unnecessary piece of plastic which is screwed onto the bumper, and then the number plate holder screwed onto that, into which the number plate fits. Why not just buy a number plate holder and attach it to the bumper, or just use adhesive pads to fix plate to bumper.

I would fit a number plate holder if it could form itself to the shape of the bumper, I just have a number plate with adhesive pads fiited now and you can see the pads when standing above the plate, is there something out there that can just tidy this up ?

Thanks

You can buy holders that if you warm them up the will bend the the shape of the bumper, do the same with the plate and less strain on the adhesive sticky pads
