Wow...$25 for bumper plugs?

Just go on eBay and order some painted ones.

Are you guys serious? New Bumper? Plugs?
Fill the holes and paint the bumper simple.

OP, you live in beverly hills ? you may want to leave the front plate on. i've received over half a dozen tickets for not having it on. i finally gave up and put the plate back on. its a 25$ fix it ticket, but if they see that you have tinted windows, they'll get you for that as well

Wow...what a racket.

In PA we don't need the front plate but I got my car in Buffalo, NY.
I was shocked that they just drilled holes right in the bumper.
There has to be a better way.

I hated the holes too, but I eventually just bought the mtech bumper.

luckily i got my e92 before the law was strictly enforced so i didnt get the holes. then again i dont have headlight washers or reflectors anymore either hahaha 1m ftw.

OP i think you should get LTMW to fill the holes in and then get a tow hook license plate holder
