I have a feeling it is no longer available. Price is "TBD", and Pelican is the only vendor that still lists it. All the others I searched it came up NLA. The single review on the Pelican site was dated almost 6 years ago.

To my knowledge there is not a filler to cover those two holes in the plastic bumper impact strips. You can try a hardware store and look for plastic hole caps. The one hornhospital mentioned is only for the diving board bumpers.

My E30 has an BMW ABS plastic panel that is just stuck to the impact strip to cover the holes.

I bought the Pelican Parts filler in 2011, but I'm 99% sure that they no longer have them..

The piece you see in the pic is NLA. A good surface prep and automotive grade adhessive will ensure that your item sticks.
