    I have a ‘17 Civic EX, and I recently noticed there’s holes under both the tail lights on the rear bumper. Just wanted to see if anyone knows if that’s stock or if the repair shop I went to messed up.

    I got an approval for shop to replace the aftermarket bumper with an OEM one, but shop just called me claiming that the OEM one also has holes in it.. Will go tomorrow to check it out and take pics though

    Huh I guess ours do have a hole! But the difference between your hole and a normal hole is that

    1) not jagged like yours
    2) does not go past the headlights it’s more inward. I took a picture of mine

    Thanks a lot for the picture! You saved me a trip to the dealership because I was going to go to check out other civics to see if they had the same thing. Appreciate your help. I’m just going to go ahead and have them replace it
