2 options:

1. Take it to a body shop and have them fill it in for you. That should run you $500-$800 probably.

2. Buy another bumper preferably the Euro bumper since there are no reflectors. Don't know the price but from what i've heard the US and Euro bumpers cost pretty much the same.

Nice car by the way.

funny thing, my sales guy actually recommended me not to put the front plate on, he didnt want to damage the look of the M3 by drilling holes into it. I wouldnt let him do it anyway.

Go get the tiny bumper plugs or put your plate on!

To cover them up, you can put on the license plate. =)

Did it already come with the plate on already?

Wow! Did it come like that from the dealer? I would never have accepted it with drilled holes or a front license plate.
