Garage List
If you want a plate frame that has BMW branding on it, get the Carbon Fiber one which says BMW Performance. I think that one is very nice and genuine carbon fiber.

I have the MINI plate frame with a black Union Jack to honor my home country.

From the day I got my production # to delivery it only took 6 weeks. If your driving in the city you won't be able to park your car without getting a ticket for the front plate

If you're set on getting one with BMW, ///M, etc. on it, I would go with the one that stealth recommended. Personally, I prefer no logos - the car is already covered with them.

Same dilemma was thinking of the "powered by M" (not Carbon fiber) just a plain thin gloss black, body color from IND or no frame at all...had tinted cover on my previous car but got a few warnings and don't any excuse to get pulled over

I prefer no more BMW or M branding so would go with plain. Right now I have no frame at all. Need to find a plain black frame.
