I'm very happy with my BD, 7/17/2020 reservation, got it last Tuesday. Looks just right to me. I obsessed for the last year and a half about color and wheels. I wanted a retro look and it looks great with the Steelies! 18.4 mph not going over 50 mph so far, 130 miles .... not so great but mph wasn't the goal obviously. I shopped for about 3 days for wheels on-line. After driving in some slush, I don't think you want any poke on the wheel fit. There are some cool Ford Ranger Raptor wheels that are the stock +55 mm offset. Roush Racing has some wheels in a $7K package with other stuff that maybe I can find separate. If I can get a bunch of weight off the wheels that would be a good decision. I'm just going to wear out the 32-in Grabbers and go 33-in KO2's next.

Legit confused, why?
I think the front end is so nice that the plate distracts from the visuals. The cops don't care - hardly any new Vette's have them on. I have a 2017 Alfa Giulia and the front plate would mess up the looks. But if you don't mind ... that's cool .... live free or die!

Gotcha, I think it’s ok with the kr bracket I got but I get it.

Yeah I like like your's lower down there - the stock setup is up high and requires drilling into the mod bumper. I made sure the dealer knew that I didn't want that. I was worried about going w/o the front plate on the Alfa 5 years ago. I stopped at a construction site one time in it. Cop starts coming over, I'm like oh no ... hassle time. He just wanted to talk about the car and how I liked it.

Might not have the SBD, or the 1000 inch screen, or the signature lights, but the trim looks the best off-road and I hope it’s making me a better driver. Black Diamond FTW.

Curious, does anyone know how heavy the steel wheels are?
