Bumper plugs

Hey guys,

I picked up my M3 today, and love it. Unfortunately, the dealer installed a front plate, which apparently necessitates drilling into the front bumper. Does anyone make a set of plugs that can cover up the gashes? Anyone else have a similar experience?

Thanks in advance.

Yeah, but they don't offer M3 colors. I need Space Gray plugs. As someone above noted, it looks like *you guys* actually offer plugs in the right color. What's up with that?

Here are a couple of mine. When I pulled the frame off, I realized I have four holes instead of the two I expected. Install was pretty easy, just had to bore out the holes a little with a drill. Pain matched great, better than the crappy quality painted reflectors I got (from another vendor.)
