Front Plate Replacement?

I recently bought a California 87 325e. it has the front plate holder, and I was wondering what a cheap way to replace that would be. While I'm at it, what else should I do to it since it was made for the California emission standards?

Thanks!

is the bumper broken?

and every vehicle is made for cali emissions. cut the cat out and do a tune up. there are a few tricks to do on the intake to help the air flow better for better throttle response. and a turbo

I was wondering about the cat, thanks. the bumper isn't busted, it just has a holder for the front license plate and I was wondering what the best way to remove this without leaving an ugly hole in the front would be.

Pelican Parts had a filler plate, that I bought last year... About $30... but, a real b---- to install.. (unless you have extremely long, thin, monkey fingers)..
