    I'm assuming to avoid confusion and to streamline the process, all cars now will have the front license plate put on. I had requested it to be left off but my DA said it's now a requirement that it be put on. I bet they were running into issues when it was placed on when it wasn't supposed to causing customers to be angry.

    Although i'm a bit disappointed, if it helps them deliver the cars faster then i'm all for it. It's only using double sided tape so it shouldn't be hard to remove.

    Took quite a bit of strength to remove the front license plate holder. A few things to help, remove the four screws and remove the actual plate before pulling hard on the plastic holder. The amount of strength you'll use to remove the license plate holder will bend your plate a bit. Once removed, use some Goo Gone or other adhesive remover to get rid of the stickiness.

    They actually told me this at my delivery. Apparently some people who opted out and had early deliveries weren’t putting their plate on within 7 days (which I guess was part of the deal).

    That’s unfortunate as I’m booked for PPF two days after delivery.

    Would heat help it come off easier?

    I've just accepted this and already cancelled my order for my plate mount. I'll use that money to buy something else for it.

    Heat would help, but the main thing is don't be scared just slowly pull hard from one side to the other. You might damage some of the plastic of the black license plate holder due to the strength of the adhesive, but there was no damage to the vehicle, nor any paint cracking issues.

    I think it's all about quicker delivery. They used to have the front license in frunk and then ask the owner on spot if they want it to be installed or not. If yes, it takes a technician 10-15 min to put it on. If no, the owner signs a form and take the plate.

    First thing I did was removed the bracket when I got back home. Was easy to remove with a hair dryer pointed at the adhesive.

    Leave the car with sun on the front for an hour. Hair dryer under the edge as you pull carefully. I’ll probably just leave mine on until PPF early July and then reattach.

    They had these installed on Saturday. I was adamant about it not being installed, provided a copy of my order for a bracket and they left it off for me.

    Thanks Cory, that's great news, as my bracket is actually here in hand. Glad to hear that they're responsive if you can show that you have the intention of putting on the front plate.
