Cadillac XTS Forum Discussion, front license plate bracket removal-bumper repair in Current Cadillac Vehicle Discussion; I just picked up a new XTS. it came with a front license plate bracket screwed into the front bumper. ...
I just picked up a new XTS. it came with a front license plate bracket screwed into the front bumper. My state does not require a front license plate. The dealer said they could remove it but it would leave holes in the bumper which they would repair and paint. They said it would look brand-new and undetectable. they offered to do this at no charge.
my concern is whether it will indeed look brand-new and undetectable when they fill in the holes and paint them? or am I just better off leaving the front license plate bracket installed. I think it detracts from the clean lines of the front.
Re: front license plate bracket removal-bumper repair
My car came from a neighboring state that requires front plates also, but thankfully that original dealer didn't mount the bracket. Maybe that original dealer in Zharkov's situation doesn't do much trading with his state???? (Although it seems like common sense in the auto industry to wait and see if a vehicle is traded before unilaterally drilling holes in new cars to mount plate brackets.)
