: Front license plate frame

Does the front frame mount where the holes are hidden or does the dealer drill through the front bumper?
I found a new 6 speed coupe for $9500 off sticker but it has a front plate bracket on it.
If the dealer drilled through my front bumper, It'll be a deal braeker for me!

They drill the front bumper. There will be two holes.

Yes, they will have drilled two good size holes in the front bumper. I shopped long and hard before getting a car because all I kept finding were cars that had that darn plate drilled/mounted already. If you remove the plate, the two holes are tough to fix. I have seen plugs, and people even having a body shop fix... it is just never right after they drill into it. I would run away and move on to something else.
