If you are talking about the automated hidden car license plate, you better be ready to do several installs. A friend who has it has installed 5 on the same car in the last 3 years as he said it is not really made for cars that is driven most of the time especially so on a daily basis and in the Eastern U.S. where salt/sand is spread on the roads during the snowy winter months. If it's a show room car then it would be fine. I originally contemplated on using such but opted for the tow hook license plate install as that seems to be the most durable for front license plate installs without having to drill holes on the front bumper.
