YES, good advice , don’t be shy about telling them. I told my dealer multiple times not too install my front plate bracket , well they installed it I was very angry , they corrected it by putting a new bumper on my car and then I went to the best paint shop I knew of and the dealer paid for it. Everything was good in the end , but what a nightmareIf you can get to the car before they mess with it, remove the bracket from the trunk and on some painters tape, write DO NOT DRILL with a Sharpie and tape to the front bumper.

Somewhat similar experience here in California, about needing to sign this doc.In Washington state you have to sign a document at closing saying you know a front plate is required and that you will take care of it. I did and some day I will...sure I will 😏🤣
That's crazy, it's in their DNA, they just can't help it. Even Demons had their bumpers drilled!!Somewhat similar experience here in California, about needing to sign this doc.
I was buying used from a non-Dodge dealer, at the table signing paperwork and the guy offhandedly says, "OK; my guys are doing final prep - washing the car, vacuuming the floor mats, drilling holes to attach the front plate".
WHAT?! NO! STOP! It didn't have a front plate when I test-drove it a few minutes ago, what are you doing?!
The guy gets on his walkie-talkie to the shop and frantically yells at them to stop. They were just about to drill, but caught them in time. Whew .
Guy then adds this doc on the pile of things to sign.
mine states the bumper will be replaced and repainted at zero cost.I had my sales person make a note on the purchase agreement that if they drilled the bumper, I wouldn't accept delivery of the car.
We need front plates where I live, but I got a sto & show that doesn't require drilling.
I didn’t do that, last year when I picked up my car. I told my dealer multiple times that I didn’t want it installed. And they did not. Didn’t sign anything either. Not that it really matters, I see tons of cars in my area without a front plate (and they wouldn’t qualify as an exception according to Washington law). That being said I have a stonsho for my front plate.In Washington state you have to sign a document at closing saying you know a front plate is required and that you will take care of it.

Sure, that’s the risk you take to do that. It’s the same with window rings here. You can only have the top 6” of the front windshield tinted, but you will also see plenty of cars with a full tint. Also, usually darker that the legal limit too.One problem with a law that is not strictly enforced is it gives people a sense of security to violate it, and then LE has reason to stop you at any time for any reason.
Mine is still on the box. Ensure that the dealer knows that you do not want the bracket installed. Hammer it home that if they do, you won’t take delivery of the car. That should get their attention and let them know you are dead serious.I juts noticed on my build sheet it says Front License plate bracket. I do not want that to be installed on my charger when it arrives. Should I tell my rep when it arrives not to do that?
money brains has a fist full of 2" drywall screws with a singularly primary goal in life - keep trying no matter how may screws management thinks it needs Cause more is better.mine states the bumper will be replaced and repainted at zero cost.
