License Plate area hole block

Hello everyone,

My state only has a rear license plate, so I would like to block the holes in the front (the vehicle was formerly operated in NY (requires 2 license plates)). Did anyone do anything similar? I don't want to add another blank plate that says BMW or similar....lol. Attached an image.

They can match your paint color. $27.95 per pair. Easy to install.

You get what you pay for. Iíve used bumper plugs on multiple cars. Always a perfect paint match and perfect fit.
Proceed with the $6.95 plugs at your own risk.

Actually have been needing to do the same thing. Went from Illinois to Indiana and only require rear plates here. Didn't know about bumper plugs, but I think I'm gonna grab what frisbeeguy posted due to the bumper on my '05 not being painted body color so black will work.

I have two of the finest black philips headed self tappers in mine.

Fortunately the car is black also.
