It's like speeding... It's illegal in Texas. You can get a ticket. All the rest is anecdotal.
If memory serves me correctly, it was ~ $183 fine a few years ago ... speaking from personal experience :-(
We have the Model X versio
We have an alternate version on our Model X, works great. Needed it for our daughter's driving test, they wouldn't let her take the test without a front plate.
From an engineering perspective, that front plate holder just doesn't sit right with me. The holder itself looks okay in strength, but it looks like it transfers all the wind load directly onto those thin plastic strips. I would have less concern if it butted up against the bumper with a rubber guard. Just noting that and it may be fine. Just would not want to break that part accidentally.
I will be picking up my Model 3 saturday and will run it front plate free for a while, but may add a front license plate holder next year. I drive through a school zone daily with a bike cop who regularly checks everyone's stickers when they are driving by. Its almost a certainty to get pulled over in the morning without a front plate.
Will probably check back here once that happens.
If anything happens adversely to ours, I'll post an update here. It's been doing fine, this far.

It would have to be on a STATE level, so the Governor would do it!
here in SF the meter maids will ticket you for no front plate. I suspect that this will become a national trend as the need for funding government infrastructure increases and government surveillance from the deep state increases #conspiracytheory #kiddingsortof
Ours on our Model X has been in place for 21 months with no issues.
I recently got my model 3 this past month and drive thru Comal, Hays, & Travis county on a near daily basis.. I'm debating on putting my front plates on the car and wonder if anyone can share their experience driving in these counties without a front plate. Thanks!
same here. i live in sugar land area- regularly driving fort bend, harris, brazoria and galveston counties, for past 12 years without a front plate. currently have MS- previously owned Mercedes CLS550 and BMW 5 Series- all without a plate. pulled over once in brenham (washington county) but not ticketed.
Before we put ours on our Model X, my wife was stopped and ticketed out in the western, more rural part of Travis County. We didn't put one on for that reason, only when we needed it to actually allow my daughter to take a driving test (as stated a few posts up). Just a data point.
A Clear Lake resident here for 3 years, so experience is on the SE side of town. Own both S and X. Pulled over in each vehicle in Houston proper - S after two weeks in town, was able to avoid ticket because I was within my "30 day new resident" window and had not yet gotten TX plates. X after two years, ticketed (we believe this was to help a new officer get training/meet his quota at the end of the month because two cars did the traffic stop).
Was pulled over this past weekend driving from Dallas to Houston for having no front plate. This occurred in Madison County. Got away with just a warning.
