Front license plate holder on a RC 350 F sport

What are the choices for those of us in states that require a front license plate? I have seen the one with the tow hook connection but not sure I like the offset plate and I keep reading it interferes with the parking sensors.
I have the factory center bumper holder, but no instructions and it looks like I have to drill the front bumper too. Pics on the net show that one will engulf that pretty grille.

I've always seen the license plate mounted to the bottom of the grille. Doesn't look great, but there isn't really a good place to put it.

Maybe something off to the side? They apparently don't need holes drilled into the bumper.

Does that really look any better though? I think that putting it off centre just makes it more noticeable.

I`ve always been in favor of having a hide away plate system that tucks the plate under the bumper, you can get them powered with a remote connectivity or manual. Front end of these new Lexus` are way too clean to have something like a plate in the way all the time.

The hide away is an option, but while you are driving around you are still going to see it, so in some ways it is just a partial fix.

No it's not, the whole point of doing this is to not drill holes and then having the ability to hide it when you want. it doesn't get better than that.

Dont you still need to drill holes for the hide away plate? Granted they're hidden holes.

Just seems like more trouble than it is worth.
