No Front Side Markers?

I had to replace the front bumper cover on my 2012 C63 Coupe so I ordered one from a Mercedes dealer. I got the part in the huge MB box, got it painted and assembled, and while installing it I noticed it did not have the side markers! I asked the dealer why it was missing the side markers and they said they ordered the part using my VIN number and it was the correct part. I zip tied the wire and bulb inside the bumper so I wouldn't get the check bulb message, and finished the installation. I actually think it looks better without the markers, but was wondering if anyone has ever seen a bumper without the markers?

Replacement OEM doesn't have the holes for the markers, the shop would have to drill for that. This is my experience in the USA.

That would me my guess, probably marked on the back of the panel for cutting - just be happy - yours is better!

Thanks for all the information, I really appreciate it. It doesn't surprise me that you need to cut out the spot for the marker lights as I discovered that some of the AMG bumper parts seem to be more "hand made" than the regular production pieces. The small frame that holds the grill in front of the right fender oil cooler (below the running light) is made of two pieces, the top piece is the non-AMG frame that has been sawed in half (you can see the saw marks) and then the bottom is a molded U shape with no part number on it. This arrangement allows air to flow through to the oil cooler.
