Did your Model 3 come with the rear license plate frame?

    So I bought several accessories for my Model 3 before I took delivery on Thursday. One of the items I bought is the Model 3 license plate frame: Model 3 License Plate Frame

    When I took delivery I noticed them attaching this very same frame to my car with my temp tag in the back. They told me they were putting them on all of the new Model 3’s. Hopefully I can just return the one I bought from the online store to my local Tesla location. Just wanted to see if others also received the frame for free when taking delivery. If you haven’t taken delivery yet and were considering ordering the frame I would hold off.

    Yes mine also says Model 3 and came on the rear. I didn't check if one was included on the front seat.

    I bought one a while ago as well. Hoping I get one included with the car. Use them on both ends.

    +1. I also ordered the $40 frame ahead of time. I may keep it and use it on the front, depending on what the front plate holder looks like.

    Something else I noticed, is the plastic chrome screw covers on mine tend to pop off when closing the trunk. Got to see if there’s a way to make them fit tighter...

    Someone gave me a Model 3 license plate frame as a gift. Maybe that one will go on the front.

    Or I can mount a clock in it and wear it as an oversize necklace, thus appropriating Flavor Flav's look.

    Good post - so all now know: YES all Model 3's come with (1) plate frame. It feels light and plastic but apparently it's metal.

    My plate frame rattles when I close the trunk. Anyone else have a fix? The screws are tight. Need to wedge something between the trunk lid and the plate frame.

    I had another car and the license plate rattled like mad. I cant remember the exact product I used but it was sticky on the plate side and like a foam on the other.

    Mine rattled at first and then I discovered that they only put in the top two screws. Adding the two screws at the bottom took care of it.

    Thanks! I couldn't think of the name to save my life earlier this morning. I have had one taxing week at work.

    One installed on the rear at delivery, and one for the front (but left in the trunk since I don't have front plates yet.)

    The one for the front is standard equipment usually found in the trunk. Not really a plate frame. It's a plate bracket....
