It has to be a perfect fit for the grills since they clip in. No screws holding them in place. You should rather fight to return the bumper

What on earth are you talking about?

See those two huge gaping holes in the center? That's for kidney grills! Kinda hard to miss them...

i assume this is the same bumper you were trying to sell that came with the awful looking mesh grills? Sucks. On a side note, great wheels!

There are a lot of parts that have just the same fitment and/or quality as oem. Guess op just went with a MORE cheaper alternative.

Good god how is that possible?

3 options IMO.
1. Complain and get a new one
2. Make your own holes
3. Super glue/tape them on
