So I did a full chrome delete on my white Model 3. Struggling to find a decent, Black license plate frame. Weathertech has a black Billet license plate frame and a carbon fiber one, but each is over $100. Lots of cheap plastic ones out there, but nothing inbetween. I have Weathertech’s Stainless Steel frames for my other cars and they are nice, solid metal, a Support frame for behind the plate to keep it from rattling and only $35.

For those who have done a chrome delete, what black license plate frame did you end up using?

I haven't found any good ones either. Ideally I would like to have black with red TESLA letters across the bottom. I think I am just going to vinyl wrap the chrome Model 3 plate frame that they gave at delivery and try to cut red letters to stick on. Plus to wrapping it is that it will perfectly coordinate with the trim.

I just plasti dipped my emblems and license plate frame. The stock frame keeps the plate nicely off the curvature of the trunk and the other cheap frames I bought before all faded quickly. I hot it with one coat of glossifier so the sheen more closely matches the satin chrome delete.

I wish Tesla made a black frame as well. The chrome frame doesn’t go well with chrome deleted cars forsure.

Unless Tesla comes out with their own I plan on installing a BMW Slimline license plate frame. I have it on my bmw m3 and like it so much I got one for my Subie as well. High quality steel frame no logos or badging on it. Super clean look. They aren’t too expensive either around 25-30 bucks.

Hopes this helps. I would link it but not sure if that is allowed on here. Just made an account. Literally first post.
