Does anyone have a picture of the inside of the trunk under the carpeted mat. Just trying to see what should be included in there. I believe the rear brake duct shields (track only) were in there. Just wondering if my dealer took some stuff out.

In my trunk I found the rear brake duct deflectors, locking lug nuts for the wheels, tow hook, the cargo net which I clipped in place, and a front-license plate bracket (which ended up in the garbage of course.)

Nice to see there is a tow hook. Does a portion of the front grille come out or is there sufficient room to thread it in?

There's removable painted cap on the front bumper with a threaded socket.

Has anyone actually tried to thread in the tow hook? I tried the other day and couldn't for the life of me get it to start threading.

I did as I had a spare from my V3. Was surprised to find the one from the V3 is completely different thread and won't fit like the included tow hook. (V3 variant looked nicer and beefier as well)

Even tho it’s in the trunk, there’s a live lead under the hood. I run mine from that on my ZL1 1LE. I purchased an extra long chord and ran it in such a way that I don’t have to even open the hood to access it.

Speaking of batteries in the trunk, the 4s battery is on the driver’s side. Which side is the 5s on? In my ZL1 1LE, it’s on the passenger’s side. I’ve always thought that it was on the passenger’s side in order to offset the driver’s weight. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Its on the drivers side...I put a pigtail on the battery and plug it in, them close the trunk...I did not like doing it under the hood....
