every front plate holder i've seen is held on with 2 philips screws into the bumper or fascia (from the front of the holder)
can you take a picture? are you sure the screws are not covered with tape or a label or something?
these are installed at the usually dealership and i doubt they would require removal of the bumper.

in europe (and apparently iceland) they call license plates "number plates".

i just realized that they use probably use the short and wide style plate, so it might be mounted differently than we are used to seeing.

if you mean the black plastic fascia strip along the top of the lower grill, that is not meant to come off.

The guy probably has a mazda 3 MPS (as i do :lol: ) .
Is what you call mazdaspeed 3 , but here in Europe (and Australia is called MPS) but you already know that.
But even if it s not an MPS the difference in licence plates or number plates is what someone mentioned a couple of posts before.

we have long and more narrow plates , you have short and wide.

So you can not unscrew anything as there are no screws in the fascia. the are screwed in a kind of backwards behind the bumper, so only if you remove the bumper you can remove the piece that holds the plates, but even then there will be holes in the bumper.
I dont know if this will be nice afterall

yeah, he'll prolly have 2 holes (like I do, but further apart), and he can use bumper plugs or something to cover them.
there's lots of diy options, like a plug or cap from the hardware store and touch-up paint.
