Tow Hook license plate holder

Need a tow hook solution in CA for front plate citation.
I've checked the threads on this and most responses are for the 3 series or have links that don't work.
Found one on the web that would work but looks cheap out of sheet metal.
Even talked to the vendor most recommend but no E89 only older.
I would appreciate any suggestions.

I never liked the off-center look you get with a tow hook plate holder. Did you consider applying the plate in the normal position with double-sided tape? You won't have to drill any holes and you can put the plate where it looks best (which is, actually, any place but on the car!)

Agree. Looks funky off to the side but not sure I can get the ticket signed off with double stick tape.
All the solutions online are for the old z4 or the 3 series.

I used this one as I have to have it in NJ. I love it and no stupid holes. All BMWs should come with it as standard equipment in states with two plates.
