RHO Licence plate - hides scratch.

Last week somebody scratched my car at the parking lot on the bumper
I was pissed off as i would have had to repaint the bumper which would be $400.
luckily the scratch was above the tow hook mount and thought i could use the RHO Licence plate mount. the licence plate is solid and looks like it will hold up nicely.
The only problem was the two holes in the bumper from the previous plate holder. I got the touch up paint from pep boys and while I was searching the paint found the small black plugs for the nuts. since my car is Silver thought the black plugs on the bumper wont looks that bad.
what do you guys thing ?

Looks get but get rid of the frame, looks cleaner without it. And I would still paint the plugs.

I agree anytime there is a tow plate being used, it def looks cleaner without any type of frame even if it's OEM, but the rear tho i would always rock an black OEM BMW frame
