Has anyone ever used this site before (customeuroplates.com)? And what hardware do I need to mount it to a US bumper? I would prefer to not drill extra holes and use these two mounting points, but if it's not possible, ok.

Design I was thinking of. My car is mainly red and black, so I picked carbon fiber backing and red lettering.

No hardware at all should be necessary, other than the Euro plate frame you can (probably) order from that same site:



Those two holes in your photo are actually for European plates – the aforementioned frame should have two holes that line right up with them – which is why Volvo makes that H-bracket for US plates.

Great! There was the option for the plate frame from the site. Total was $45 if I remember. Do I need screws as well or will the H frame screws work?

I've used this company for my last two vehicles as well. Great quality plates and you can't beat the price. They also run https://www.customeuropeanplates.com/ which seems to basically be the same web site only with a slightly different display (both linked to the same California-based company).

Pulling the trigger then! I need to get rid of the US plate for my light bar...

Hope I'm not too late hehe

Assuming the H-bracket doesn't use rivets instead, they'd probably work as long as their heads aren't too big (i.e. that they clear the euro plate once it's slid into the frame).

I've actually been swamped lately with ski races and school. Have not ordered it yet, so thanks for the help! They are not rivets, just philips head screws. Looking at the picture above too, where the screws go there is a recess that will fit the screws.
