    No, not "extra"... car still has the same number as any other :eek:

    (I can see where two of them are meant to go... not sure about the others)

    At least you know what they are and what they're for. My Roadster came with this black plastic bolt sitting in the trunk:

    No idea of what it's for, can't find anyplace where it could go. Anyone know?

    That goes in the tow hook socket in the front grille. On a 1.5 it is clearly visible (assuming there is no license place in the way).

    Aha! Virginia being a state that requires a front plate, my Roadster arrived with the license plate holder already attached. Thanks for solving the mystery for me.
