    New pressed plates and surrounds fitted much better I think as it get rid or the screw holes and the main dealer location name on the plate.

    Looks very nice. I think I'm still going to get the GB bit on my pressed plates.

    Hopefully mine should be here in a few days, ebay said despatched Friday afternoon but the tracking on the courier says "Current parcel status: Awaiting courier pickup or parcel dropoff"... Bit impatient but i go Wales Thursday so some pics might be nice lol

    Only problem i had was the rear plates were held on with plastic screws and of of them broke about halfway down the thread so i cant get it all out, tried drilling it out and using a self tapper but its being really awkward so just bolted the holder on in the holes, will get a shorter bolt for that side tomorrow at work. Reckon the thread is just standard M6?
