    Greetings, Just purchased my wife a 2012 TDI SE, used this forum for some great information during the process.

    The front plate bracket was in the trunk, it appears to clip into the grill? Is this sufficient or do I need to have the dealer screw it into the front bumper?

    Thanks.

    I work at a Canadian dealer, we install these as part of PDI. There are usually holes in it... Line it up and drill the bumber with a 5/16 drill bit through the holes. Plate bracket should have black plastic push-in clips with it. If the clips aren't there, talk to your dealer about having them supplied.

    Go back to the dealer! They should install it for you, but does TX need front plates? If not DONT install it... keep in trunk in spare tire area, if I could not have a front plate I wouldnt install it... takes away from the front... enjoy
