    The product is simple: In Q4 (estimated December delivery), we will be offering an oe grade polyurethane front bumper replacement refresh for all older Tesla Model S called the FBR.

    The bumper will fit all Model S with the old look bumpers excluding Signature models.

    Tow hook assembly will still be accessible.

    We designed and engineered the FBR to fit within our #alloriginal product style meaning you will re-use the following hardware items from your existing bumper and transfer over to our FBR:
    T Emblem
    Parking Sensors (and respective assemblies)
    Fog Lamps & adjacent grilles (and respective assemblies)
    Lower center grille with or w/out auto pilot

    We will provide a new chrome "v" shaped emblem.

    Professional installation & paint is required by an auto body shop.

    We are taking fully refundable deposits for a nominal 500.00 here.

    We recommend that every FBR owner take their bumper to a professional auto body shop for painting and installation.

    Will you have a version for early cars without parking sensors?

    A qualified body shop should be able to handle the parking sensor hole concern.

    No, you miss the point. I don't HAVE parking sensors and don't WANT them. If you are referring to have a body shop slap some bondo or something in the pre-drilled holes in the Tsportline bumper b/c you don't make a version without holes, I'll pass.

    Does the bumper come with holes, without, or can the user pick?

    @bkp_duke We do not plan to have FBR's without holes. "Slapping bondo or something in the pre-drilled holes" may be a poor choice of a body shop. We would never recommend slapping on bondo to fill a hole. There's much more qualified processes to fill parking sensor holes, ie. parking sensor plugs.

    You can buy the parking sensors from Tesla for $15 each. Assuming you need 6 for the front bumper, you're only looking at $90 extra. You don't have to retrofit them either. They would just be there unused. Otherwise there's a special filler body shops use for polyurethane bumper covers that would work just fine.
