Default Missing License Plate plastic hole Covers

I have a Black 993 C4S, but have the holes showing in the front were the License plate would bolt on. My state doesn't require a Front License plate. Thank Goodness!!

Anyone know where I could get OEM one's.

Anyone know where to get the plastic square nut (expanding?) so I can try different options to install the plate--I really don't want to use the OEM plate bracket unless I have no other choice.

Another vote for Bumperplugs. I had them on my Boxsters and my Carrera 4.

I have an opposing view of Bumperplugs.com and I avoid doing business with them.

I once ordered something that arrived very well packaged, but was clearly defective when it left their shop. I contacted them and was immediately accused of being at fault. They were very defensive and difficult to deal with. Eventually and reluctantly they refunded my $.

They are overpriced but are better than square holes in your bumper. If I had to do it again I would find a cheaper alternative.

Here's one that plugs right into your tow hook up front:

Not sure if this is a "discreet" solution for your liking.

Cheers,

Surprisingly, Lowe's carries a bunch of different license plate hardware...in the nuts/screws aisle, specialty hardware drawers...

I don't believe any OEM ones exist. It is either Bumberplugs.com, or DIY with parts from the hardware store and paint.

I went to my local True Value and looked in their various plug / cover bins.
I found 2 black plastic plugs that fit the holes. I polished them before I put them in and you'd be hard pressed to know they were not painted. cost less than $2

Works great if your car is black
