    Waiting for the first owner reports but this looks promising.

    Robert,
    We apologize for the miscommunication but we are happy you were able to come in and see us at the store today to pick up The Law now that we have several in stock. We look forward to hearing what you think about it!

    Rove,
    Thanks for ordering The Law license plate bracket for the Model X! Let us know what you think about it once it’s installed.

    Picked mine up today at the Kent, WA store. Haven't driven with it yet, but seems very snug. My only recommendation for Torklift Central or an installer is to have a longer neck for the Allen wrench. The provided one has too short of a neck and when you are rotating it you could scrape the plastic in the grill area if you aren't careful. Instructions were clear and in color.

    BTW - Kudo's to the store for having a Level 2 charger in the parking lot! (Blink Network)

    Super. Any chance you can show some pictures from the sides and also where it attaches?

    Nice! Will one be made for the refreshed model S? I love how low it sits as not to be smack in the middle of the nose of the car.

    Here you go. In the instructions, it says to not over tighten the screws (4) as it might crack the louver.

    Thanks for taking the time to post the photos. It looks like a good alternative to drilling holes. Do you think that if another vehicle gently bumps the license plate, it will crack that bottom piece? At first glance, it just looks like the way it's mounted is a bit unforgiving and some pressure on it will break it. Impact might just be as bad with it drilled on the bumper but it might not break off.

    Regards,

    Perfect. It looks like a no holes solution? I am in.

    I suppose that is a possibility, but it is a risk I am willing to take.

    Hey Gentilly7,

    We appreciate your inquiry — Creating a Model S Refresh Law bracket would definitely be worth consideration. We'll pass it along to
    our engineering team to see what they can do. We will need to bring a refreshed Model S into the shop in order to confirm fitment of The Law, but this will be the first place we announce any new accessories!

    Hey Robert,

    Thank you for sharing your photos of The Law on your Model X! It looks fantastic. Would you mind if we use your photos on our website? We also really appreciate your feedback about the allen wrench and will make sure to pass on your feedback to our team to see if there are adjustments we can make. We hope you took advantage of the charger in the parking lot -- that's what it's there for! :)

    You may you the photos. Sorry my license plate doesn't say "Torklift". :)

    Thank you Robert! We really appreciate you letting us use your photos. We'll make do without the "Torklift" on the plates. ;)

    Gwan, we're happy to hear that you've installed The Law on your Model X! Could you share some photos so we can see what it looks like?

    Waiting for mine to arrive. Looks like a good solution.

    Now I need something for my HOV stickers. :)
