    Number plate plinth

    Hi all

    I got a price of £50 just for the above from my local Audi dealership, anyone else think that's is expensive just for the plinth.

    Thanks
    Simon

    i recognize that car im of ED as well mate, just sold my anni TDi and bought a more practical car for the family.

    As for the plinth, i can only find complete grills. saying that the price is better, just not sure on which one i like more.

    this one

    You meaning the plate filler? Just get some Di-Noc and wrap it, takes 5 minutes. Mines still perfect after year or two.

    not fussed i dont think, however the front plate i want to put on is shortened so i suppose a flush plinth would suit better.
