F30 Front w/o License Plate Frame Bracket

Took some pics from my local dealership:
Looks better than the earlier production models with the ugly license plate holder:

Looks way better. Though I wonder what the front plate bracket looks like for those states that require a front plate.

Is that "hole" in the front bumper used for automatic cruise control or is the tow hook cover just removed for some reason?

Tow hook cover
It is not installed till the dealer preps the car, so it is not lost or stolen

Are those glued on like the badge on the back or is it actually a bit more laid into the metal?

From what I have seen they are more laid into the bumper which is making me a bit mad wish they were different
