Mines screwed on through the vinyl. Haven't had any problems with it.

You got to remember that the bumper is on a curve, thats why most of the plates are screwed in. If you were going to stick it on, you would need super adhesive pads.

Mine is fitted with 5 strips of 1" wide 3" long velcro diagonally stuck to the bumper, I left custom gaps in the vinyl for the velcro strips and no-one on a gallopin horse can tell, and my number plate is still there!

I do the same with my trailer and lighting boards that way its a 30 second job to swap plates between my dads and mine...

then again it'll be bloody hard to pull off with 5 strips of the stuff..

I bolted mine on yesterday (with stainless steel)
