Ok, here's the deal.... the MX does not come with an installed front license plate mounting bracket. It does come with a bracket, but you have to install it yourself or have the service center install it for you (recommended) because it requires drilling into the front of your new car. When I was at the Tesla service center in San Rafael I counted 30 MS and 4 MX with no front plate and 2 with a front plate. Given that the MX looks much better (all cars actually) without a front plate, is there much of a penalty for not installing it? Will I get a ticket?
