This is what happened to me. I forgot to mention to them I didn't want front plates drilled (the one I saw earlier in the spring had a note that said no front so I was thinking it was common practice on these). So now I have two lovely little holes in my bumper
Of course we have front plates required in Iowa, but I would have preferred to be able to do it myself and make use of the square holes right next to the two. Not to mention there is no assurance that these holes won't strip eventually and my stainless plate will just fall off. My only real complaint aside from forgetting my phone is in the armrest because I'm listening to Pandora through USB...
