    Try here for anyone wanting ABT surrounds:

    Type your reg in here to see how it looks in pressed metal:

    Apparently from what I've read pressed metal is not legal, have a look at these guidelines on where you stand with number plates:

    I'm sure someone has them and will post a pic...

    Just be careful if you do go for it incase they're illegal. (see the last link on my previous post).

    Richardesty just out some on his car in the B7 section. I think the pressed plates look much better, glad they are not illegal over here, although we can't have a yellow year plate

    Surely they would still be illegal then?

    The plate surrounds, anyone know where I can have some custom made?

    I'm looking at replacing the plates with some clean fresh ones but also wanting to customise the surrounds.

    the BSAU145d refers to the fact that the plates have the company name & address of who/where the plates were made/printed by......i think

    i have seen alot of these plates about and think they look really good and i need my front one replacing cuz it is cracked so i might dive in and get a set

    From DVLA Factsheet V796 "Display of Registration Marks for Motor Vehicles"

    The British Standard sets out the physical characteristics of the plate. This includes visibility, strength and reflectivity. The British Standard also requires each number plate to be permanently and legibly marked with the following:
    1. The B.S. Number (currently BS AU 145d)
    2. The name, trade mark or other identifying means of the manufacture or component supplier.
    3. Name and postcode of the supplier.
    Full leaflet HERE

    From that Dubmeister link the font etc looks the same, but the reflectivity may be different? IMO those 'legal' Dubmeister plates look like the old metal plates displayed on cars before plastic plates came along and kind of miss the point of the German plates!

    I got German plates on mine and got pulled by Essex Police who told me to get rid of them (still have'nt). Got them on Ebay for 15. I've also got the surrounds that i got for free (courtesy of my in-law) from a dealer in Germany.
    Reasons the Police gave were the font, lack of some BS (no pun) numbers and that the font is raised.
    I have however heard from a number plate suplier in Hayes that you can use the 3D plates in the correct font.
