Look awesome, I’m actually more interested in how you routed the charge cord from the ceiling. I made a post with metal plate and routed cord in ramps.

I just received my Star White MME yesterday. I test drove it for a couple of hours and checked everything over. I told them I was happy with car and would purchase online while they prepped the car. I was unable to purchase online (cash sale) because the website added $525,000 as taxes and fees. So I arranged to finalize purchase at dealer. After signing papers and getting vehicle, I noticed they had attached an ugly front license bracket with a dealer tag in it. That bracket was not on the car when I test drove it and I had no idea they were going to install that bracket. I live in GA which has no front license plate. I asked them to remove it and they removed the tag, not the bracket. I asked them to remove that also and patch the holes. Today, after contacting their body shop and general manager, they are now telling me that it was installed because I ordered it online. While it is on the window sticker, I know I did not request it. Also, I have purchased many vehicles before with the license plate bracket sitting in the trunk.

Can you advise where you got the bumper plugs? It looks like bracket is held in place by plastic pop rivets that will need to be removed. I may be able to purchase sample paint tube to just touch up the plugs. Hopefully there are only 3 small holes under that bracket and not any other holes or scratches. I really do not want to repaint the whole bumper!

Your car customizations look great by the way.

This sounds like a typical case of the detailers/pdi guys doing what they are trained to do. Most people who live in states that require 2 plates already have them on there from the factory (Come right off the truck with them attached) so its surprising they automatically put it on. But it could be part of the delivery process they are required to do so. Make sure you buy two packages as there are three holes and they only sell these in pairs.

Expecting my delivery next week! Where did you get the decal from? I'd love to get something like that done on mine. Any assistance would be appreciated.
All the work was custom, my bf designed the decal and brought the idea to a local shop who made it all happen. It has been a head turner for sure!!!
