    1.) I've seen on youtube (5:50 into ) that you can have a significant gap on the hood, but is this (see pic) too much?

    2.) Has anyone successfully installed a bridge transponder behind the nose cone as suggested on page 160 of the Owners Manual? I'd prefer to do this instead of installing on the windshield if it works fine.

    Thanks.

    The gap looks a little more than normal to me, but not excessive. Check other cars. That is the spot that has the most obvious gap in the car.

    There is a whole discussion on transponder placement, but yes others have successfully placed it behind the nosecone.

    Also Welcome to the forum!! Congrats on the new car!!

    That gap is about right for a 2013, but it can be improved a bit.
