Car fans all around seem to agree on one thing: their cars look much better without the front license plate right in the middle of the bumper. Many people even opt to remove the entire license plate completely. While the lack of the front plate in the middle of the bumper looks great, it does draw unwanted police attention. When you add that with a loud exhaust and a bagged ride, the police are practically eating their donuts next to your driveway.
Fortunately, there’s a quick alternative to the front plate, and that’s by relocating it to the side via the tow hole. You get to keep your front plates and still get a sporty racing look. This license plate tow hook mounting bracket uses the tow hole to screw in the mounting stick and plate to the side of your bumper without having to drill or modify your bumper in any way. This license plate tow hook mounting adapter is available for a ton of cars, including BMW, Mercedes Benz, Audi, Lexus, Toyota, Scion, Subaru, Nissan, and more. If you don’t see a set available for your car, you just need to check your bumper to see if there’s a tow hole. If there is, you can bet that there will be one available soon.
Seems like before we get to fully autonomous cars, the milestone that technology will conquer before are cars that would be able to find their own parking space. As a driver, all you will need to do is pull up to a parking garage, get out of your vehicle, and leave it to find a parking spot by itself. When you need to retrieve your car, simply summon it back and it will already be waiting for you at a specially designated area in front of the parking garage. Those days of aimlessly circling around for a parking spot and having to fight tooth a nail with other irate shoppers for that one measly spot between two full size SUVs are coming to a close. Imagine never having to find a parking space again.
We all know that the 1 series is the cheapest model in the BMW line, there’s not much that’s going to be done to the car until it’s phased out so don’t expect too many changes to be made. One thing that’s slated to be different is the front end since it’s been widely criticized since day one. The new look is rumored to look like the 2 series coupe since the 2 series is significantly more attractive.
We are extremely interested in the LED facet (obviously) so it’s great to hear that the new prototypes have LED strips in the back. The interior should remain about the same, so it looks like the upgrade will be all about the exterior.

LED halo rings are still crowned the king of all lighting mods and ever since BMW first came out with halo rings on the E39 5-Series, the rest of the world exploded in unison of approval. Whether or not you have a Euro, JDM, or American car, it’s pretty much guaranteed that LED halo rings will make your ride look bomb all day, every day. I can’t think of another mod that is so universally accepted or popular. At SEMA, halo rings were everywhere and we gathered some of our favorites.
