    Need new numberplates!
    dont know what to go for, audi logo, GB, plain, 3d text!! so many combinations
    dont want anything tacky but want them to look good.
    should i keep the plastic 'lancaster audi' surrounds or bin them?? anyone with pics of theirs?

    also was considering some aero wipers, seen the kit on vag parts, has anyone got one and what do you think??

    cheers!

    definetly dont want ilegal plates!
    pablo - yours look brilliant but the text is not standard, i think im going to go for plain plates and remove the crappy surrounds!!

    anyone comment on the aero wipers??

    also..!!! ive seen some chrome mirror covers but theyre non genuine, made by a german company called in-pro, anyone bought them? theyre around £60 and they say theyre a perfect fit, the audi ones are around £500 arnt they???
    thanks!

    Here is very cheeky link to fit them - just to wet your appetite

    Has a great "plate builder" for diffrent styles backgrounds colours and badges etc. Lets you see what your reg and style looks like before you buy. I have a 3D Carbon one with Suzuki background and SV650 in the slogan on my bike and have never been pulled!! They will sell anything legal or not but the buck stops with you!!!
