I've seen a couple posts on this topic however wanted to share my solution with everyone and see what you think.

First I had purchased some black hole plugs from: 8mm (5/16") Hole Plugs | Buy from WidgetCo

Here's a picture of what the plug looks like:


Once you have removed the front license plate and bracket, use a 5/16" drill bit to make the hole a little larger to accommodate the 8mm plug. Use a razor blade and carefully trim excess plastic and be sure the front of each hole is smooth.

Next push the 8mm plug firmly into the hole and your finished!

Here are some pics of how mine turned out.

That's what I used to fill the holes in my trunk where I took off the spoiler. I just smeared some clear silicone on the bottom to keep the rain out and it really doesn't look as bad as you'd think.

Yes.. they are called Hide Away Plate way cheaper than the motorized.. they sell it in the same website.

This. But, get the manual one. It's a lot cheaper. And then plug the holes like it says in here. Got my plugs at Auto Zone for pretty cheap, back when I first did mine. Used the push pins like what holds the carpeted piece on, on the decklid.
