Front License Plate Platypus Holder - R50/52/53/55/56/57 Cooper & S To 2010
This ingenious PLATYPUS license plate bracket uses the front tow hook attachment point for a nice clean look.

Rigid

. Made from a lightweight aluminum with enough thickness to make it solid. Powder coated black for a stealth look.

A newly updated design allows the plate to mount at an 'angle' which allows it to sit closer to the bumper. To protect the bumper finish, the metal hardware is replaced with plastic 'lamprey clips'. The new clips make installing the plate easier as well, while maintaining durability.

Fitment

Designed for the following models:

2007-2010 R56 Cooper and Cooper S Hatchback
2008-2010 R55 Cooper and Cooper S CLUBMAN
2009-2010 R57 Cooper and Cooper S Convertible

Also for 2007-2010 Models with the JCW Body Kit

Also fits:

2002-2006 R50 MINI Cooper and R53 Cooper S Hatchback
2005-2008 R52 MINI Cooper and S Convertible

For another option, see NMA2501.

For the R60 COUNTRYMAN, see G2NMX7304 or G2NMA2510.

For the 2011-2013 R55/56/57, and R58 Coupe / R59 Roadster, see G2NMX7306.

What's the difference between this 'PLATYPUS' G2NMX7300 unit and the 'No Holes' NMA2501 unit?

We get this question asked a lot, so here goes..

The Platypus G2NMX7300

[ ] Lightweight Alloy construction
[ ] Fewer parts with several vertical & sideways position
[ ] Black Powdercoat finish
[ ] Sits with a slight angle to match the bumper contour

The 'No Holes' NMA2501

[ ] Stainless Steel construction
[ ] More parts with several vertical positions
[ ] Stainless Steel finish
[ ] Sits with a slight angle to match the bumper contour

Functionally, they both work very well. Many people make their selection based on their personal preference for the 'look' (Powdercoat Black vs. Stainless Steel), or whether they want the plate 'square' to the post, or at a slight angle. Either way, they are both great products.

Great Solution to drilling holes in your bumper
By:
Pros: Lightweight, sturdy and easy to install. Fewer parts than NMA2501. Very sturdy. I do not feel the need to be concerned about car washes as per the warning on the other model for the same price.

Cons: Clearance could be less, but not by a lot.

Other Thoughts: I wish the clearance were slightly less, but this is a great alternative to drilling holes in your bumper. While it appears that this has the same number of parts as NMA2501, it has less. There was the tow hook attachment and screw, 4 screws, 4 spacers and 4 nuts plus the plate. The image shows more screws plus the oval part that I did not receive (or need). While there is room for improvement, I am happy with my purchase
