Default Advice on fitting a short number plate to the D4 front grill

So I have a 5 digit number plate which is not as wide as a standard UK plate but is completely legal, and marked as such. Problem is that if I stick it to the existing front number plate holder it will look silly as the holder is naturally far wider than the plate.

Has anyone got a solution they could recommend? I was thinking perhaps one of the following:

a) fix the plate to the grille (somehow) without using the existing holder
b) modify the width of the existing holder to accommodate a smaller number plate.
c) try and find an overseas genuine Audi number plate holder for the A8 (contacted Audi and no help, looked on ebay etc and nothing other than square holders for the US market).
