A little bit on the two mounting arms would be cleaner, and would be on the paintwork
Many thanks Tony,
But the Swiss plates (as we're non-EU) are much smaller than in the rest of Europe.
Also smaller than the US, so with shorter mounting arms (plate is only 8cm high) your current US it should work fine
Here's a couple of pics;
and on my model S
Measurements are as follows;
Front - 8 x 30 cm
Rear - 11 x 50 cm
As mentioned, i'd be happy to pay for the bracket and support arms, and can look locally how a small format Swiss plate (like the one in the pic) would fit. Some local development in cold Switzerland.
Will check it out, thanks!
The fan will run little faster if blocked by the plate holder in front of the louvers to compensate for loss of little volume on high ambient temps. That is to it. I never had any issues with plate holder mounted in front of the louvers.
Width of the air intake space is 11 cm right at the opening and 10 cm next to louvers.
Anyone from europe know if the factory license plate holders are glued or screwed on the front bumper?
In Belgium we can get squared license plates on the front. Those can fit in a us system (like bandit) with an extra adapter.
On mine they are screwed. My PPF installer had to remove them for installing the film and showed me the setup.
Incidentally, for all those in the US who don't need front license plates or who like to take chances: in Germany a guy was stopped for not having a front plate. When the police told the guy he said they should check again. And lo and behold, there was a plate after all. The guy had installed a motorized license plate holder that could hide the plate under the bumper and could be controlled via a button on the steering wheel. He was charged for license plate forgery and had to pay a fine of 3,500 Euro! That's Germany for you.
I just want a smaller legal square one (for US cars in Belgium).
Damn I am screwed then :/
LivingTesla just introduced another solution for a removable front plate. No hardware to install, easy to install \ remove, yet still "lockable" if you're worried about the sort of thing.

I know the market dictates pricing but man the prices on these license plate holder solutions are absurd.
