Model S license plate holder

Model S license plate holder

I have recently purchased a model S . State law in Texas states a license plate should be showing a front and back plates. The back already has a holder but I don’t want to put holes on the front. Is there any alternatives that I’m not away or any way around it ? Please let me know . Thanks

The car comes with a front license plate holder. I assume you bought your used and the previous owner had it removed. I think you can contact your local Tesla store and ask how to get one.

What year or what nose cone does it have? Makes a big difference.

It has one but it seems you have to drill a hole in it ?

I use the Torklift plate holder on my 2015. It has the earlier plastic nose cone and works great. No drill holes.

OP. go over to TMC - Teslamotorsclub.com and search for license plates. You will find a variety of solutions. Some cheap and clever and some more permanent. TMC is a great source for solutions and DIYer's.

I figure you could also use heavy duty double-sided mounting tape. It's strong enough to hold up picture frames and body kits. I'm not sure if it'll hold up to the weather elements though.

The Model S has 3M dual lock, a high temp bonded Velcro like fastening system, in several areas. Avail in Lowe's and Home Despot. Black stuff is high temp, follow directions.
