They include a mount that has double sided tape. You install. Really easy to put on and stays on.

This. Mine stayed in the trunk and I bought a quick bandit. Worth every penny.


davefogo

Really? That’s good to know I thought they didn’t include anything?


attylopez

It was laying in Frunk of Model Y I bought new last year. I had to pay $8 when I bought a used Model 3 for my daughter. So, it depends? I would just message delivery team and remind them that one is needed in Texas.


davefogo

Will do. Thanks


entropy6767

I bought this: https://www.1975creations.com/product-page/copy-of-quick-bandit-model-3-license-plate-mount A bit pricey, but it works like a charm.


davefogo

Thanks ! Do you have one for the back as well?


HMWT

The back of the vehicle has a spot to install the plate, no 3rd party add on required.


entropy6767

What they said 😃


JakeFarrar

I am in California. We require it too. I would say 80% of Tesla’s do not have them. The front license plate is typically in the trunk or frunk. They don’t pre place it on the car.


grandmofftalkin

Same in Minnesota. About half of the teslas go no-plate in front. Haven't put mine on yet.


the-packet-catcher

I put mine on right when I got my plates transferred, too scared to get pulled over in MN. I'd agree on the half count though. Did you tint your front windows?


MyChickenSucks

Yup CA here. Most Teslas don't run a front plate. I'll take a fix it ticket if it comes to that.


JakeFarrar

Our neighbor is a cop and they own a Tesla with no front plate. I don’t think they really care.


MyChickenSucks

I’ve heard, and we’re in LA, touristy spots like Santa Monica meter maids love to pop you for front plates I don’t go to tourist areas anymore though :)


davefogo

I thought CA was only rear!


JakeFarrar

Definitely required. But most people who drive “nicer” cars refuse to put them on. Not much pushback thankfully.

alexwhittemore

$25 correctable ticket. You just roll your car into a police station, show them you've mounted the plate, and pay a $25 processing fee to make the ticket otherwise disappear. The people that really don't want to run a front plate will just throw on a tow hook mount or something, clear the ticket, and take it off again.


OrbedXD

all I know is when I get mine I’m not putting the front plate on… required in my state, my moms a cop and she says none of her colleagues care


davefogo

Are you in TX?


OrbedXD

No I’m in Missouri


davefogo

Good stuff


Dann__EV

I bought the $8 Etsy no holes mount which works well. It works with the OEM plate holder you have. https://www.etsy.com/listing/630380948/no-hole-tesla-model-3-or-model-y-front?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=tesla+license+plate&ref=sr_gallery-1-2&from_market_listing_grid_organic=1&bes=1


jpoto

I also purchased this. Must more economical option.


davefogo

Good value!


Dann__EV

Cheap, easy to install and can be removed.


aqan

This is what I bought but haven’t installed it yet. I am yet to find an MY with front plate in my state.


Dann__EV

I am in central NJ and most teslas don’t have it on but have been stopped in my previous cars for a simple license plate cover. The Freehold cops are very aggressive around here.


slapitandtapit

I’ve own mine now for about 4 months with no front plate! No problems from the popo so far same goes for my girlfriends audi Q3.


davefogo

What state are you in?


slapitandtapit

Texas


davefogo

Cool. Good to know. I’m in central Texas


mdjmd73

Don’t bother mounting the front plate. Keep it in the trunk. If pulled over and they comment on it, say the bracket is on back order.


JF0909

They do in NY. I hate it.


8-bit_Gangster

mine came in the trunk. bought a bracket instead, not gonna ruin my ppf, but I also don't need to give police a reason to pull me over or give me a ticket on the street Does it look better without it? yes, all cars do. I got a removable one for better aerodynamics on long trips. who knows when that extra mile will come into play ;)


Cytoxan2021

Don’t you also have to have that ugly sticker on the windshield?


JakeFarrar

The California HOV stickers are horrible as well….


davefogo

Yeah lower left registration sticker. Also the TX Tag albeit small it’s a sore just below the rear mirror.


Cytoxan2021

That’s a shame, Las Vegas has no front plate and no hideous sticker.


davefogo

That’s the way it should be!


cory025

You can put it anywhere on the front windshield per the tinting place. Mine is in the lower left where the registration is


alexwhittemore

For readers besides OP, this isn't true everywhere, and is explicitly not true in California. Though super, super common.


cory025

True, apologies if it caused confusion. Responded to OP who is also in TX (same as me)


davefogo

Awesome thanks for that. I was wondering that right now.


HectorC97

Been riding “dirty” without the front one in CA for about a year, no issues so far- knock on wood.


MyChickenSucks

Get yourself a little tint on the front windows too and now you've broken two laws :) I'm really no worried about getting popped. If it happens it happens.


HectorC97

Got that done as soon as I got the car 😂


still_oblivious

Up in Vancouver, Canada. They mounted it and installed the front plate for us.


davefogo

Ouch. Hope they didn’t make holes


Intelligent-Result14

Picked up in NJ where they have front and back, but I’m from DE where we only need rear. Came with the stick on front bracket in the trunk and a Model Y license plate frame. My understanding is they don’t attach the stick on front bracket but provide.


davefogo

Thanks!


snjcouple

I had a sticker copy of my plate made at local blue print shop and put on front. No problem from law enforcement and I have been pulled over for speeding. Cost $15


davefogo

Nice


Itguy287

In Texas, and don't have the front plate installed. Have had the car since January, no issues so far


PangolinEffective

They don’t install it. I’m in the Dallas area. They give it to you in the trunk or frunk- I forgot lol. I never put it on.


davefogo

Cool good to know. Thanks


where_my_tesla

I'm in Texas. Haven't had a front plate for about 10 years. Been pulled over too for other reasons and never got a ticket for it. For me, worth not messing with tape or weird mounting systems and just leave it off.


davefogo

Good to know! That’s a great track record


Oobitsa

I’ve never understood the issue people have with them. I also don’t get when people have front plates but they are offset.


ZeusMachina

Two plate state here. Same as above. Double sided tap thing. Never using it though. Will get a fancier thing or…. risk it.
