    Evening guys.

    Is there such a thing as a genuine Audi rear number plate holder?

    My rear plate has screws right through one of the numbers (looks shoddy) and so I'd like to tidy it up a bit.

    I just want a plain black holder, not something with Audi Deutschland, etc. printed on it.

    Any suggestions?

    Cheers,

    Chris

    P.S. Black Edition is now 6 weeks old. The 2.0 TFSI engine is sweet (but a little noisy when idling). Some **** scraped my rear bumper at B&Q, but otherwise car is fine. Still irritated by the lack of mp3 info on the stereo.

    Or how about just a plate, with no holder or screws. Use double sided trim repair tape from Halfords (about £5 a roll) and it looks even neater than a holder.

    or go to B&Q and buy 5 times as much on a roll for £1.50! :) I know I change my plates far too often so i cnat afford the halfords prices!

    I have my plate double sided on, like mitch said, much neater and cheaper if you think about it!

    I always specify no number plate holders on my new cars. The dealer just uses the double sided foam tape. Much neater and no advertising.

    Click on surrounds and take your pick.

    I went for Zentrum Ingolstadt ones and matched them with UK legal pressed plates. Have to say I'm chuffed with them.

    I know what you're saying, but I just felt the rear number plate area left the plate kinda floating ....

    The front is fine as there's a shaped area for the plate to sit in.
