    I recently got my new S75D on 8/22/17 and it did not come with the rear chrome license plate frame I've seen on other Tesla's. I called my DS and she said they were currently out of stock and didn't know when they would get more. She said she would let me know when/if they got more. In the mean time, I was wondering if anyone here has an extra one or one you aren't using that you would be willing to part with.

    Thanks, Scott

    Hi Scott,

    When I received my 2013 CPO last April, I too did not get a license plate frame, I was told this SC (Buena Park) was all out and they didn't know when they would receive anymore. About 2 months later I happened to be running some errands and stopped by the Burbank SC to charge on the way home. While waiting, I asked an employee if they had any frames and they did! So maybe visit another SC and ask.

    Thanks!

    @bakerboy, thanks for the tip! I'm going to be making a road trip next weekend to Santa Cruz and will be making a supercharging stop at the Dublin SC so I will ask. Thanks again!

    Just so you know, they're plastic "chrome". Still, you indeed should get one (or two!)

    You need to park that S until you get your Tesla frame. That's embarrassing to be driving around with your tag edges showing. You trying to give us a bad rep? Maybe if you put a brown paper bag over your tag, it won't shame us.

    You seriously want that plastic frame? If you ever drive by the South Bay, you can have mine.

    I had the exact same thing happened to me. I just attached the license without a frame temporarily.
    They eventually FedEx'd me the frame when it came back in stock. (As I requested)

    My plastic "chrome" Tesla frame barely lasted a year. About to replace it with a stainless steel frame. I don't need the Tesla name on the frame. :)
