There is no screw holes for a front license plate. Dealer has some tape option which is “permanent” (I’m skeptical), but the location would be right in the middle of that big, beautiful grill.

what are others doing?
I can probably opt for no front plate (illegal in my state) and just temporarily attach it for inspections, but curious if other have found another solution?

You should check with your state DMV many are charging 50 bucks for single licenses plate on the back and small sticker on the windshield that you paid fee for using one plate.

I’m currently attaching my front plate fully naked using 3M velcro hanging strips on my Audi. Been through car washes and mega rain storms without issue. Fully reversible.

This place sells tow hook license plate mounting brackets for BMWs, but they've told me they won't have one for the iX for 3 or 4 months. If more of us express an interest to buy maybe they'll produce one quicker. Front tow hook mounts are a great way to keep the iX finishing grills pristine. Here's their website: BMW No Drill Front Bumper Tow Hook License Plate Mount Bracket | EOS Plates

This photo shows their mount on an M4.

How about a picture of it installed? To see where yiur have it set too
I bought the same plate mount from EOS. Here's my photo. Notice 2 things: I have my EzPass mounted at bottom. It's not a Flex pass, but I never carpool anymore. The 2nd thing is the cracks in my finishing grill. New parts are on order from Germany, so it is a good time to install the tow hook mount before the permanent sticky tape is used with the factory front plate mount. I also wanted the cleaner look of the front grill. (Damaged caused by someone backing into me while I was at a full stop. The Drive Recorder video was much appreciated by my insurance company to clear me of any fault. I posted the video on the Drive Recorder thread if you want to see it. )
