Hinges or bolts? haha

It looks like you have a facelift (2002+) 330, meaning your car has the updated hood, bumpers and lights. Most replica bumpers are made for prefacelift (1999-2001) cars, so all you have to do is install the prefacelift front bumper brackets to make it compatible.

They'll look like this -

edit: to be more specific, these are the mounting brackets that the bumper slides into. Below the front corner lights.
