Front Plates should not be automatically put on by dealers. This should be something that is left up to the end customer. Ask at time of sale if they would like this to be added.

It will save the dealer $$ if the customer doesn't want it. Put on labor and removal labor!

If they do want it only 1 installation labor.

It is required by state law so it must be installed on the vehicle.

Not necessarily...well, unless there's a really strict TX regulation saying it must be done once a car even touches a TX lot. In the states that require it by law, that doesn't mean those cars will still even be sold there, etc. Case in point, the GT I'm buying is from New Jersey where they have the front plate law but the dealer--as others in the surrounding states here--does not install the brackets until an actual delivery to a Jersey customer or on request. That way, someone like me from Delaware can get a car from them with no holes & rivets, they can dealer trade to DE & PA without those dealers having to worry about it, etc...it's just in the trunk, waiting.

Has always been a solid policy to me, and I wish more would do it.

Killer car, Nino, but keep that thing off of it until a TX delivery or request for it is made

Would love to see more pics please.

Sorry, if these were out 2 months ago with the current deals I would have picked one up then. Hell I would have even went to Texas for it.

Oh, and the front plate is a law here too, but most dealers won't install it automatically, law or not... They leave that up to the end purchaser.

I find that most do install them around here. Sullivan and St. Charles does.
ALthough I've bought a few from Sullivan that I was able to tell them to not install it.
