There are tons of accessories available for the MINI Cooper and it’s one of the lucky ones in our arsenal to be able to install a MINI Cooper tow hook license plate adapter! Since the MINI Cooper has its heritage based on the style of British racing, then it’s a good idea to give your MINI that racing look with a side mounted license plate.
Tow Hook License Plate Mounts seem to be all the rage these days, since the crackdown of the police giving people fix-it tickets for no front license plates. JDM and Euro car fans don’t really agree on a lot of things, but they have one thing in common: center front plates are an eyesore. What’s worse than a front plate is drilling into the front bumper, because now you have a bunch of holes in your front bumper than looks even worse than before. A great fix for than conundrum would be a tow hook license plate mount, which is a very convenient add-on. All you need to do is remove the tow hook cover and install the entire apparatus into the bumper. Check out this MINI Cooper Tow Hook License Adapter and how much sportier it makes the car.
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.

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.
