Question about 2001 Audi TT
Two really powerful magnets to clamp the bumper like a vise. License plate just sticks to outside magnet. Never had the nerve to try it myself, I live in a neighborhood where the rig would get robbed.
It is a very nice car you are driving. I can understand the hesitation you have for drilling holes. Stormsure is a good strong adhesive with flexible properties, but I'd suggest sanding a small portion of the bumper first. Adhesives stick best when there is no clearcoat, paint, or primer to reduce bonding.
If it was my car and I was wanting to put a license plate on my car... I would fashion a bracket that clamped over the bumper. It would be a flat bracket that could slide between bumper and hood. It would be padded with a soft rubber, so it did not damage the paint job too much. It would take a considerable amount of time to create something like that, but it would be removable and have very little trace.
A lot of people go to salvage yards and find replacement bumpers for cheap. Whichever bumper is in the worst condition is the one to practice drilling holes and sanding for adhesive. If you decide to go with a permanent mount, practice first. Only when you are sure the job looks factory or better should you do the job to a nice piece.

The option is to get a bumper that has the license plate mount on it or buy a mounting kit but you will have to drill holes into the bumper. The clearance below the bumper does not allow you to hang it from below. Wish you had more options. Here in NJ we have the same problems when cars are bought in Pennsylvania!!
