    I'm sure Paullie will be along shortly as she has a website that are cheap and more importantly, legal.Quick question, have you got hids to work on your car? How are they wired to stop the wiper motor blowing?

    Na that was the only slightly sketchy part. They simply asked for the Reg number and whether or not I wanted the GB sign on my plates. However the plates have all the legal marking on them.

    Just don't get the German looking ones although they look pretty cool, I had a set and they were a total pull over magnet.

    Another positive vote for Dubmeister.

    Although as I bought mine in the group buy on here they did have my documents for sometime.

    Just be carefully as to which pressed plates your buying.
    The pressed plates made when they cut out the yellow reflective top off are rubbish!!
    The top layer eventually losses it's stickiness and peels off.

    Make sure you buy the printed ones when the plates are pressed and then the black lettering is printed on the top of the pressed metal.

    So they will accept scanned in copies will they? does everyone agree that dubmeister is the best place to go?

    I love pressed plates and wont have anything else. I got mine from GTI Inters last year. Dubmeister are really good and they look good in the holders too.

    Why not create a group buy? Dubs did one for Ibizaoc Forum, that's where I got my ones from.

    Hi Chappy,

    Yeah that was Dubmeister and I had to send my original documents off.

    That price was with the group buy on this forum. If you look in the Group Buy section you will see it there. You could always try restarting the thread if there is enough interest?

    Cheers Ryan,

    Well we seem to have a decent amount of interested here, so maybe we could start one from this?

    What sticky pads do people recommend using to stick pressed plates onto the car. (Don't want to use a surround)

    Theres some on Dubmeister but £6 is a bit steep for delivery.

    I got these ones as a back up. Exactly the same as the ones dubmeister sell. Don't like surrounds either.

    Dubmeister still selling them and the bonus was they were only £15 a pair at ED38 show a couple of weeks back too!
    I neglected to get a pair for the new sport back but got a set for my range rover classic (91) and they look great!!

    They can bend but you can re-shape them easily enough.


    I had pressed plates years ago but got pulled by the 5-0 for them being "german."

    Went back to a normal font but when at Edition 38 I decided to get another set from europl8 again

    Welcome to Europl8

    Look great IMO!
