Accord front bumper plugs for license plate holes

I was wondering where a good place to get some bumper plugs for my front bumper? After removing the front plate there are two holes left in the bumper. I see some nice ones from bumper plugs.com for $32. They seem nicely painted
Just like the bumper but seem a little expensive. Anybody know of another ones that would match? I do not want to make my own since I highly doubt the paint would look smooth and uniform. Please let me know if you guys have any opinions. Thanks.

They'll even factory color match for you. There are cheaper DIY options.

Seems like a rip off for small plugs. I went to Lowes and got some spacers and just came home and painted with my sister's nail polish. Fit right in and you can't even see it

The ones from bumperplugs.com are ridiculously overpriced. I checked lowes but couldn't really find anything useable. I'm just going to live with the holes. $35 is just too much for something that literally costs pennies to manufacture.

I have always just ordered them direct through honda. I get black ones for a s2000 and have them paint matched after. They have worked in different bumpers(ek hatch, eg coupe, dc2 integra) I can only assume they will work once again with our 9th gens.

I found some black ones at ACE HARDWARE for .35 cents each. My 2015 is white and I may paint the plugs and may not. Either way, they look much better than that unsightly license plate accessory.

That's basically what I did at ACE HDW, but got black ones. Nylon dry rots...
