    FYI -- that is actually a product from Torklift… Evannex is just a reseller (and charges a bit more). Here's the Torklift page: Tesla Model 3 Law

    I bought the Model S version of "The Law" when I moved from a 1-plate state to a 2-plate state. Yes, their cost to make these is well below what they charge, but it is a well-made solution that did not require drilling into the nose cone. It is not garbage. It was also the only no-drill mount that was not a magnetic mount that I could find. I'm happy to pay for quality product that gives the maker a profit (if they didn't make a profit, they wouldn't be selling these for long…).

    So far, it saved me from a $150 ticket when I was pulled over for what highway patrol thought was seeing me turn on a red light at an intersection marked no turn on red (I had a green arrow that he didn't see -- he was coming from a different direction). The patrolman checked for the front plate and commented that he was surprised I had one since many Teslas don't have the front plat on it (which tells me he thought he'd get an easy ticket!). So its already paid for itself.

    ______

    But I don't want to spoil the OP's thread about his product. I welcome competition in this space -- looks like a nice design that I will consider when I get my Model 3...

    I do prefer the lower position of The Law bracket. Curious how much real impact there is with air flow.

    If I felt like I could possibly get away without installing the front plate, I would. In my little town, some days it seems Law Enforcement out number the citizens, you cannot go 2 blocks without passing an Officer!!:(

    Probably want to minimize blocking the vent as much as possible, that's why it was moved up in close proximity with the OEM mount. Website will be up in about T-48hrs! Finalized design & nested parts layout completed and a small initial production run started. Thank you all for your input and interest

    Kipp, it's pretty solid, I did attempt to push it and the front grill is quite flexible itself as it is also made of some kind of plastic as well.

    That is good to hear that there a a lot of flex so that neither break due to a small parking mistake. Thanks for the follow up.

    Its looks much better above the Grill instead of blocking "I Think".
    Is the "Darknavi" the website you will publish info when available??
