I was thinking the 6W9 plate was going to span the entire grill and then the license plate would mount in the center of that---but not so?
I have an A6 with the front license plate holder (6W3). Basically it's just a flat mounting place for a plate. I pulled my car from dealer stock, and asked when I took delivery, if they would remove it. They said they could, but that the four drill holes would be exposed. Your dealer may need to drill holes and then attach the license plate holder. But I have to confess I'm not certain.
I have a new 2015 A6 on order, and this time I specified that I want it WITHOUT the license holder (my state doesn't require front license plates).
But good luck with your situation.
