Default License plate holder removal?

I moved to a state where the front plate is not needed. Can you take off the gray plastic thing that holds the license plate frame? Thanks.

Yes, the entire front US plate assembly can be removed with a few screws to reveal the Euro plate holder underneath. If not fitting a Euro front plate, get a filler panel to keep the look clean.

I replaced the front license plate holder with a filler plate - bought mine from madaudi.com

Dealer told me that whole plastic piece screws out and you can replace it. He said $100-200 to get the one w/out lic plate bracket.

Is there a difference between the license plate holder for the S5, A5 and A5 S-Line or is it all the same dull grey piece?

You'll need a Torx driver. I think it's size 20 or 25.

Nope - same one except for the color to match the grill.

Don't forget to remove the license plate before trying to remove the holder, as there is a Torx screw that is covered the plate when installed. Other than that, it took me less than 5 minutes to remove the holder, clean the grille and install the filler.

I went with the Piano Black (shiny) plate filler myself. Nice contrast with Ice Silver. It was cheaper than the matte gray one to boot. ECS Tuning as well.
