Has anyone purchased the front grill Honda Insight accessory/upgrade? Do you have a before and after photo?

I took off the front license plate bracket and it left holes. This would be an easy solution to fix the unsightly screw holes.
I was thinking the same thing, or filling. Found a quick, cost-saving solution was using black plastic caps to fill the holes. Friendly neighborhood auto body guy had a drawer full and shared a few with me. Been over a year and the most the look like up close are parking sensors.

Those look good! Do you have more information on what those are exactly?

They may have been push in retainer clips. I just did a quick search for those and plastic/nylon friction rivets which yielded a bunch of different products of different sizes that look very similar to what they used. The ones they used had a nice flat, disk head which match the black billet screw covers on my back plate whic are a little higher profile, but look finished. You could use those as well. I get them on amazon or auto part stores.

I removed the front plate and to cover the holes. I hole punched (2) color matched vinyl wraps then put the clear bra on...it came out perfect.

Mini sidebar - but his reminds me that on my Gen6 Civic, there was a specific body-colored OEM part/clips that came on the car (and which I still have somewhere). I didn't need a front license plate until I moved states, and I only needed to remove the clips when it came time to attach. And if I no longer need the front license plate, the OEM clips pop back in. Too bad that's no longer standard on Hondas...
