... for anyone who got their car without the Starshield. Did you get the small film protectors in front of the rear wheels, or is this something only ROW cars get?

yes, my car came with the small protectors in front of the rear wheels...no starshield. And of course I already got a stone chip just past the edge of that small protector. It isn't quite bid enough I guess.

Nathan,
The cars arrive at port with these small pieces in the trunk. If the buyer doesn't opt for starshield, they're supposed to put them on at the distribution center (doesnt always happen)

Ok, I didn't get mine. Also, is there anywhere I should look for the tow eye besides the toolkit?

It should be in the tool kit in the trunk. To install it, you remove the plug from the front of the grill and screw in the "tow eye".

Some folks don't realize they are looking at the tow hook thing when they spot it. It's tiny. It's a bolt with a small metal ring welded onto the hex head, and is black in color.

Mine is definitely missing then. My toolkit contains 4 items:
1 wheel lock
1 wheel adapter
2 alan keys

My bad,
The small film pieces to mount on the wheel arch for non- starshield cars are NOT installed at the port. Available for dealer install however.

Chris, so I should have gotten them with the car if not installed? Trying to make a list of missing stuff the dealer needs to find before I make the 200 mile trip for the first service.
