2002 W210 Front License Plate Holder?
Hahahahaha .... just noticed as was getting ready to install front Virginia license plate, that my "new" 2002 4Matic Wagon doesn't have the plate bracket on the front - no indication it was every there!

Anyone installed one before - where, other than dealer ... would prefer new if not too expensive, othewise, junk yard ... options?

They all come with a painted license plate holder, and typically there are self tapping screws into the plastic bumper. A scrap yard would be fine, the dealer will sell you one the color is the issue you might have to paint it, check your Mb dealer body shop. If you got it from a dealer make them install one. I have mine in a bag and the next owner gets it when I trade it, they installed one on my "S" , I took it off put in a couple of painted plugs.

Thanks, Peter.

Wasn't at MB dealer - I would not have been able to afford the car had it been! It was a follow-up from a car that didn't meet reserve requirements on ebay at a Lexus dealership with an aggressive "Internet Sales" department.

I have asked them to check their body shop to see if they have access to one.

Mine was in the trunk on top of the spare tire. Assume you've looked there.

Yeah ... I wish I could have found it there!

I did just hear back from Phil at Fastlane - can obtain for $110 with bolts, etc ... ouch, but about $30 better than dealer. Plus, will be same silver paint color.
