I'm glad I live in Nevada. If your car does'nt come with holes in your bumper then you don need a front license plate. Thankfully my BMW did not come with them. But my Wife's Mini did. So I countersunk the holes enough for a sheetmetal screw to fit slightly over flush, I then filed down the slots some to make the screw flush with the bumper (I didn't file down the slots entirely because I might need to take them off at some point). I then used touch up paint to paint the screw heads and it came out awesome. you have to look really hard to see that there is anything at all.
