I told my dealer I didn't want the plate bracket attached probably 5 times and also sent him an e-mail that was forwarded to the service dept. My salesman called me as soon as the car pulled into the dealership on the car carrier. I asked him to please go out to the car and take the front plate bracket out of the car and put it in his office. He did, and handed it to me when I took delivery.

If you asked them not to put it on and they did, I would think they are 100% responsible to correct it. If nothing was said and it was put on, I'd say you have a 50/50 shot of them fixing. If they're a reputable dealer, I would think they'd want to make you happy. Does your state require a front plate? If so, they will say they had to attached in order to give you an inspection sticker.

Didn't you tell them it was not wanted?
My dealer says state law mandates a front plate at delivery
Told them to duct tape it on,without the bracket
There maybe some colored plugs you can insert,but the only real way to correct it would be the body shop.

Thanks for all the replys, I was not dilligent enough on following-up on this.
You know what they say....Don't "ASSUME" anything, It will make an Ass of u & me, well it did. I was thinkin' that I may not be the first person that this has happened to, and maybe someone creative on this forum had come up with some minor cosmetic surgery for repair.

Besides that issue...This car ROCKS !!!!!!!

Ok seeing as how they installed consider your bumper "DRILLED". I had my dealer not install/ not touch my car until i got there and then they took their orders from me, lol. I do not like the hideaway LP look, plus with GFX it is a bit tougher but i use good grade wire ties. Take four and put them through the stock LP holder and then place your LP in the holder over top of the wire ties and mount and secure onto bottom grille, i also had the car 100+ and it was fine. You cannot notice if they are bolted on or not, and when you want to ride without it just cut the ties, and you are done. All police have been cool so far, and i know that will not last forever but i just can't stand the thought of having that thing permanently bolted on my car hurts my heart.

I am sure you can go to a body shop or the dealer body shop and explain yourself and ask them if they can patch/ repaint the holes. they are prob tiny enough that it shouldn't be that much work. Have a sit down with the sales manager or service manager and you may have to pay 50-100$ and i know you shouldn't have to pay anything but see what you can get. after all they want you to be satisfied so give it a shot.

If that doesnt work you can always try mounting cameras in the holes. That would be a cool picture. Sort of like Nascars bumper cam.

I don't really see what the bid deal is. All cars have LP. When people put their front plates on their dash it looks greasy. So far I haven't seen a nice looking aftermarket alternative.

I am for no Front LP and its not on my dash (its in my trunk) Still waiting on that special LP holder that comes with my GFX . To me its like that "High School before the dance pimple" or the "stain on that guys shirt from the super bowl commercial" It takes away from the awsomeness that is the 2010. We do not get to make the laws, they are made for us. I mean really is there a crime that can be stopped by having a front LP...no only a few crapy states have it and mine is one of them. I love the car without the front LP on it, it looks so smooth and clean. I placed my LP on and bam, turned me of. To each his/her own but for me i can't stand the way that thing sticks out on the front.

I told my dealer 5 times not to put one on and they did anyway! GRRRRRR. I'm still trying to get over it. In these tough times I don't want to make them order me a new facia for my silly vanity though not to mention consuming even more of the earth. And I bought a really cool plate holder on eBay that I have to sell now. Anyone want one?

If the dealer that I choose does install the plate then they are going to be buying my a new bumper. On the list of do not's drilling holes in the car is #1, behind taking it for a joy ride.

Also here is my Dealer Request Sheet, it's comprised of Scotty's and adk46r's for the most part.



1. Please notify me as soon as the car is delivered.

2. Please do not remove if applied or install the original window sticker.

3. Please leave all exterior plastic in place.

4. Please do not remove any of the plastic from the interior carpets, steering wheel, etc.

5. Please leave the carpets in the trunk with the car's build sheet intact on the bag.

6. Please do not place stickers or markers on the car or owner’s manual. Rear plate frame is okay.

7. Please do not drill / install the front license plate holder.

8. Please do not wash or detail my car prior to delivery.

9. Please do not fill the gas tank with anything less than 91 octane, if 91 octane or higher is not available do not fill the tank.

10. Please do not drive the car anymore than absolutely necessary.

If there are any questions or concerns please call me at absolutely anytime. In the event that I cannot be reached please do not proceed with the item(s) that are creating questions or concerns. If a decision(s) has to be made in a timely manner please contact one of my emergency contacts, they will find me and notify me promptly.

My cell # is (000)-000-0000
My work # is (000)-000-0000
My Emergency Contact 1 # is (000)-000-0000
My Emergency Contact 2 # is (000)-000-0000

Yep, that's why I didn't raise hell and make my dealer buy a new bumper for my car. He actually DID call me and let me know the car was there before he touched it and I said to go ahead and get it ready so I could pick it up right after work instead of waiting any longer. I forgot all about the front plate at that moment even though we had discussed it many times before so I can't blame him for forgetting. I should have instantly told him to run and get that huge black plastic mounting box out of the trunk and lock it in his desk drawer. I'm not so much mad at him as mad at myself. Hey does anyone want to buy the bracket that I got off eBay since I'm not using it.... I'll give it to you for half price!
