I know that many States do not require a front license plate, but California does. I know that many California residents will not run a front license plate on their TM3 and not worry about it. I hope that we can avoid the debate on whether to run a front plate or not in this thread (but that is wishful thinking on my part). I prefer NOT to run a front license plate but I probably will simply because if a cop decides to pull us over for no front plate, it will probably be with my wife driving by herself and I will never hear the end of it! She will be driving the TM3 by herself 80% of the time. Yes, I know that I can get a removable license plate bracket, but that is not worth it to me since it will be in place 80% of the time. No, getting a new wife is NOT an option! So, Tesla will provide a front plate bracket someplace, at this point nobody knows where, probably someplace on the duck bill. If I am going to run a plate, I would prefer to run it down low in line with the lower air scoop below the duck bill. The question is, how much would that location affect battery cooling or other cooling requirements. Prius Chat had this discussion long ago. It was determined that running the plate in front of the lower air scoop had little if any detriment on battery cooling. That is where I run my front plate on my Prius now with no problems, summer or winter. Any opinions about attaching the front plate in front of the lower air scoop?
