Thanks for the pictures. Maybe I can go to the dealer and get the two fasteners.

That is the same base plate that I have. There are two nipples on the bottom of the plate, one on each end, and these fit into slots on the bottom of the bumper and make sure the plate in centered on the bumper. Also, they are a way of hooking the bottom part.

My X3 is alpine white and my wife wants one of the 300's in vermillion red.

Thanks for the help.
