    2006 Gold Mist Met. XLR

    Cool

    Check eBay (USA), I just purchased one about a month ago for my 2006 XLR for $30.00 it was a brand new OEM bracket. If memory serves he had 3 available, once I get home I will send or post a link to the vendor. My original one got cracked somehow, I painted the new one OEM body color....looks a lot better painted.

    Sorry for the late response, I contacted the vendor and unfortunately he sold the last one that he had. Hopefully Boilermaker has one for you, if not I will keep my eye open on eBay for one.

    I found the bracket, still in plastic.
    Pennsylvania doesnt require front plates.
    Now can anyone tell us if a 2009 bracket will fit a 2008 model year.

    The part number of the plate is SKU17963 dated May 6, 2008

    The shape of the front faschia was changed in '09, so I don't believe an '08 bracket will fit an '09. The part number for the '08 bracket is actually 10376172; for an '09, the part number is 20755826. I would try GMpartsdirect.com for the '08 bracket.

    I'm glad that NC does not require a front license plate.
    No, it's NOT my Mid-Life Crisis car! That's what Corvettes are for!

    I bought my XLR in PA - no front plate. Plate is required in Illinois, but I do not like the look of the plate on the front bumper cover. I purchased one of those "hiding" front plates - it flips down, out of view, when not needed. They are very popular with Corvettes.

    Here is where I got mine from:
