    Where to buy replacement reg plates?

    I'm off to Frace in August, and don't want to have to stick a GB sticker to my car, and I don't like the idea of the magnetic ones, as they're easy to steal. Therefore I want to get some replacement number plates with the GB bit on the left hand-side, as I've heard these are an acceptable alternative to GB stickers, which are a legal requirement when driving abroad.

    There seems to be loads of places online where you can order replacement plates, just wondered if anyone had any recommendations, to save me searching around for the cheapest.

    Cheers

    Mike

    somewhere like Halfords would probably be the easiest and quickest, not sure of the prices though - from memory they have a lot of different types available.

    hope it helps

    My local dealer whipped me up a set of GB ones when the originals inevitably delaminated. I don't recall how much it cost but the fact I don't remember suggests it wasn't very expensive!

    That way you get to keep Audi-dealer branded number plates.

    Why would you want those? No way am I paying thousands of pounds for the priviledge of giving a car dealer free advertising.

    Definitely completely illegal on modern cars unless you come from Guernsey.

    You can buy them legally for any registration number you like but black and silver plates are only legal if worn on cars first registered before sometime in the mid 1970's - can't remember exactly when.

    I.e. I can legally have black and silver licence plates on my Fiat but not on the S3.

    To qualify for Black and White plates the car needs to be "classic" ie it needs to have been bulit before Jan 1972, around J or K plate cars.
    as for cheap plates (not used them but they are cheap)
