You must have seen a bad install of the Grimmspeed. It's only about an inch off the bumper and can be adjusted to be very near the factory spot. I'll post a pic once it stops raining....I've had the Cooltech bracket on since I bought my car. It tucks much closer in to the bumper and more towards the center of the car. The Grimmspeed one looks more like a universal mount, and hangs the plate more to the side and further from the front of the car. In my opinion it looks kinda cheap and goofy sticking way out like it does.
