BMW license plate frames that hold up over time

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So I've ordered many different license plate frames that say BMW because I think it looks much cleaner with a frame then without but none of them last. Stickers came off one then I got a painted one and the paint started peeling. Anyone have one that has held up well over time? Thanks!

No none OEM. Do the ones BMW sells hold up? If so I'd happily get one of those

Fwiw I've had my oems on for about 3 years, and they're awesome. Black metal, M logo. I do keep it in the garage however. Good luck.

They are great but the sun beats the hell out of them. I can tell because my front one which is more exposed is peeling but my back one which is more covered is fine
