(UK) Putting number plate on lower front grille?

Saw a bmw today with the numberplate on the lower front grille think it looked pretty neat!, wondering If I can do this too or would it be blocking airflow? placing numberplate in the yellow dotted box in photo.

my car is a 2018 340i.

It would block air flow.

At least your plates are often stuck on with double-sided tape vs. requiring holes to be drilled in the bumper cover! I used the Skene Design bracket to avoid the obvious holes - could work for you:

If I got the car brand new, I'd of said that I'll attach the front plate as I wouldn't want the front bumper drilled. heavy duty velcro pads would be my way.

but yeah I just wanted too see if moving the plate to the lower grille would be possible since it looked pretty slik.
