Talking Matte black grill and bumper plug install pics

I finally got my grill and bumper plugs in. Installed in minutes. For the grill i followed the write-up by Picus, flawless write-up. And as for the bumper plugs, just followed the instructions. 1/4 drill bit and used the palm of my hand to comfortably push them in.

where did u get the bumper plugs from? bumperplugs.com charges $35 (plus some ridiculous $8 shipping which I refuse to pay). Is there a cheaper way to fix those ED holes?

**********s.com
under exterior, and yes i am going to paint the lower grills as well. Its really cold out here in Chicago and that feels like a spring mission. I'm going to take the longer but more intricate route of having to take off the front bumper and making sure it is perfect. I rally ca notice the silver o the bottom and it really bothers me.

As for that, here http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...me+depot+plugs a DIY post that should be easier and cheaper, given that you already have touch up paint. Check it out!
