If you live in a state where they're required then it should have, unless yours was a dealer trade that came from a state where it isn't, then it might not.

My '09 was a dealer trade from Ohio where they have front plates but Kentucky doesn't. So it came with a bracket on it that they hurriedly removed to put on the one they sent back and I got 3 "plugs" in the front bumper. I asked the salesman for the bracket and he said he'd get me one someday. Since it wasn't written into the contract I never got it.

My '11 was bought at a different dealer in Kentucky. It was an option that they didn't order for it so all I have is 3 dimples on the front and no bracket. But that dealer also orders all their cars with a spare and jack!

You should get this! That way it can be hidden or visible. Would probably look good right in the center of the bumper.

It looks universal to me. I'm sure you could mount it as easily on a Malibu bumper as a mustang bumper.
