What to do with dealer tag holes?

This is the one thing I did not think about when purchasing the car, I called the dealership and they told me that I had to repaint the whole bumper...any ideas? I will not be having a front license plate, never have and never will. I think it completely ruins the front end.

Sucks so bad. That's one thing you HAVE to make sure doesn't happen.

Bumper plugs are they only way. Or wait until some kind of fender-bender (Hopefully that doesnt happen, but thats how I got rid of them on my e90)
