So it doesn’t seem there’s a front license plate bracket/mount..what have y’all done for states that require a front plate?
Are you sure? I have a front plate on mine because it's required in Rhode Island. You're going to really make me go check now lol I think I have a bracket on it too.
So, tried the zip ties over the weekend, not a solution without resizing the plate, as it's just a hair too big, and to get the zip ties to function correctly, you'd need to drill through the plastic, as the vents aren't fully across the front end.I really dont want the dealer to drill into the bumper. Was looking for a relocation kit, but almost all of them use the tow hook. Which by the way, where is that even located on the K5? Might do the same and zip tie til I find something that works.
I’m ordering from Amazon. Will post if it’s successful!!Maybe something like this to attach to the lower grille? If you don't have the radar shield for the radar, you can mount it more towards the center than off to the side.

I can't say how well they work but I've had good experiences with the company and their LED products so far.
Yes ordered. I work for Kohls and they have Free Amazon returns. Thought I’d try it out.@KiaK52022
Did you order it already? You may want to hold off on buying that one for now and shop around first. This one comes with inserts for a diamond-shaped mesh holes on the lower bumper grille so I'm not sure how well it will fit the 2021+ Kia K5 with its more open and parallel lower grille.
Nice. I’ll check it out. I really want a bigger cargo net. Hoping Kia comes out with it soon. Thought about getting the delete trim for it but it would probably Void my warranty.Oh ok, that's cool. Yeah, I just didn't want you to purchase a product if it doesn't fit... lol But they are good with honoring returns through Amazon. I mistakenly bought the wrong license plate LED replacement from them, I just returned them and bought the right set.
If anything, I highly recommend getting their LED trunk light replacement. It makes the trunk super bright and usable at night and is an exact replacement for the original light housing part.

So what I got off Amazon is a front plate mount that goes under the bumper. It mounts up and you can slide your plate under the bumper if you want. Waiting for my plates to come in so I can post pictures of it. It’s the best option to not drill into our bumpers which I’m never a fan of.
Thanks for the response. I’m going to see what I can find.
