    Replacing Front plates!

    I know it sounds daft-Silly me drilled 2 holes in the plate thinking it was a straightfoward drill into bumper process but Audi have put metal behind the front bumper where the plates go, So I need to stick them on-Where would I get some good strong holding sticky tabs (from the dealer) or is there another "cheaper" method of going about it?!

    Just use some doublesided badge fixing tape from Halfords. Make sure both surfaces are clean and warm the tape up for a stronger hold, or leave it in the sun

    Bought some 6mm Sticky pads from Halfrauds today-1.49 for 3, so got2 packs.
    Touch wood they will stay on, I only put 2 on the plate either end, the 6mm allows for the curve on the front bumper
