You should have told the dealer to not install the plate.

Yeah, I didn't have the dealer install the plate -- I just put my plate in the window when I'm driving in Ohio.

those holes just kill the look of the car! even with the plugs, it still look hideous!!! I would get them filled and repaint or order Euro Bumper which maybe cost about the same.
