    They're standard where I'm from so I don't count them as a mod

    I have the legal pressed plates and they look the danglies. Got them from DTUK on here. Awesome customer service too!

    Great cheap mod . Just fitted mine yesterday and look sweet .

    Shadowman i ended up putting a surround on the back but not the front as the curve of the front bumper was to great and there is a slight recess for the plate so it sits flush and looks better imho.

    Pressed plates are probably the best value for money mod you can do!

    Not very keen on the surrounds however, looks a bit tacky IMO

    I know what you mean.....I can't make my mond up about the surrounds,but what's the best way to fix them on without the surrounds .....you can't drill them as that is sacrilage, but I am not sure I trust the adhesive foaam pads....unless anyone can recommend good, strong ones ?

    Hi mate, I have a brand new set of front and backs with the plain Audi graphics if interested.
    From same seller in the link posted.
    Only received yesterday but changed my mind as I prefer the plainer look.

    Looking for £18 posted if interested or if anyone else is interested.

    Cheers

    The adhesive foam pads hold a plate on fine. I stuck mine on with heavy duty velcro so they can be removed for cleaning, shows etc
