    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).

    Pressed plates are illegal but if your order through dubmeister they get legal ones imported from germany :icon_thumright:

    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:(

    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.

    If you read up on it you'll find they aint for some reason :wacko:, I did alot of checking up on it as i was going to get some on the leon i had but decided not to risk getting a fine. Check out

    http://www.dubmeister.co.uk/

    And look for yourself, they comply to BSAU145d (Whatever that is)

    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"

    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.
