    There have been numerous comments regarding the MX front, so let the challenge go out to all artists and graphic designers alike....

    While we are all waiting... grab a Sharpie, or Photoshop.

    What could be an easy mod, aftermarket add-on / graphic ?

    To start things off, a simple carbon fiber overlay following the existing creases on the MX front.

    I'm sure the after market companies are already working on this.

    These were my concepts:

    nosewhite-(2).jpg
    nosewhite-(2)2.jpg
    nosewhite-(2)3.jpg

    Largely over it though. It looks fine on everything except white.

    I gotta agree. I know this is a highly subjective thing but I really prefer ditching the vestigial bits.

    I don't think I have yet seen the nose with just a 'normal' number plate yet!

    Photoshop someone?

    Here is a simple adjustment to reduce the white portion. I think it provides a better balance of the front nose. Before:

    Thanks - a bit higher! Or would the shape not 'allow' it?

    does Tesla market a mounting?

    How many countries allow no front plate? Certainly not here (although plenty try to flaunt that...!)

    Relatively few, as I understand it.

    Certainly the minority, which is why the lack of a front plate mount point is puzzling on both MS and MX...

    Why stick with black and white?

    This is the 'Merica edition...;-)
