    Has anyone modified their front grill by replacing the factory nose cone? I'd love to see other options similar to this Model S. Does anyone know who's car this is, and where it was done?

    It's love bug season now in Florida. This nose would be a b..ch to clean.

    I remember RaceMesh Grilles have a thread on here about offering a mesh grille replacement. It looked pretty good but most people on here were being unnecessarily rude because the grille wasn't "revolutionary." Just tried to find that thread but it looks the like trolls lead it to getting deleted. :rolleyes: I believe Teslaccessories is making some replacement grilles as well.

    I think they were banned from the site for claiming that they had worked with Tesla to develop the grille, implying it was a Tesla approved accessory. That turned out to be a lie. May of us were very suspicious of these claims and said so. If that's rudeness so be it.

    I was referring to the initial rude comments about the design and it being a waste since it didn't mold shapes at high speed or something else revolutionary :smile:. If that's why the thread was deleted then that's another story.

    I'm just hoping someone will come up with a grille design that incorporates a license plate in a more attractive fashion and not just as a hideous afterthought.

    That looks like the earliest Tesla MS prototype.
