Replace dealer plate frame with Slimline? (Link)

I would like to purchase a slimline frame like this to replace my dealer frame:

I notice in the picture that no covers are shown for the screw holes. Does the frame actually come with them? I don't really want screws exposed...

Yes. The black frame has black covers, the chrome frame has chrome covers. Both come with a set of four.

Thanks for the reply! One more quick question - do you think they are quality frames?

I have the chrome on on my front license. It's pretty good quality. I personally think its overpriced though.

At $28.50 they are definitely pricey. But IMO they are better quality than most aftermarket frames that are pretty much potmetal with a .01 micron electroplate that will peel off is six months. I have the black stainless steel without the name. I also have the polished stainless steel marque plate for substitution at meets.
