Some Dealers like Herzog-Meier in Beaverton, OR. are not drilling the bumper. I brought this to the attention of Mr. Meier after the first ones hit their lot and he agreed that it should be left up to the customer to decide, not forced upon the customer. The part they drill comes off and can be swapped out with a new GTI that just came in. Ask your dealer, depending on the dealer, they may be willing to help you.
