Rear license plate screws

The car came with only 2 small license plate screws. I just received my license plate and it does sit flat with only 2 screws at the top. I would like to add the 2 at the bottom as well, but they are not listed anywhere in online part websites. My dealer cannot find them either. They went through their pile of extras and found only 1 more.

On the G20, the screws for the rear license plate are very short compared to the front license plate. They have plenty for the front license plate, not for the rear.

Any idea where they can be found/ordered?

Home Depot and Lowes carries a good selection of "Metric" bolts and screws - the license plate screws are "small". Bring one of yours in to match it up. I have black frames so I selected "hex head black screws" to make them harder to remove. Cost is "cheap" - less than a buck if I recall.
