Bi-metal means there are two metals in the hole-saw bit. Usually the teeth are something harder then steel such as carbide, diamond, etc. I personally would just use a cordless drill. I also would put down some tape where you are going to drill so the shavings don't scratch your bumper.

i just bought an 08 bumper for my 01. same color. But theres a dent in it. In a great spot for the trailer tow plug. The 08 bumper does not use the same mounting bracket as my 01. i willkill 2 birds with one stone.

You can rent a quality hole saw from most rental places. I borrowed mine from a local body shop when I did the Marinco Mod.
