Hey everyone.

Could someone tell me what the bolt spacing is on the license plates for any JDM vehicle?    Need a center to center measurement if possible.

Thanks!

    I know you need an accurate measurement, but ballpark is about 2cm wider total

        Thanks but this doesn't answer my question.   I need the sizing between the bolt holes.  Not the overall.   
        I know that JDM vehicles are way off compared tho the USDM/Canadian mounting holes.

          The 2015+ Subaru WRX's have Japanese holes pre-drilled into their bumpers from the factory (I assume these are the two holes that you're talking about?), I'm leaving work now but when I get home I can measure them out for you.

            Awesome!  Thanks a bunch.   I did some digging and a thread on Nosiac actually came up with this too.   You're right, those holes are the points for the JDM plates.

              I just measured, the distance between the two holes is 8.25 inches, and the holes themselves are 3/8ths of an inch.
