    Don't get me wrong, I like the font! Still legible too, you shouldn't get much grief for that!

    Looks good :)

    My instinct felt it wasnt road legal and the site states the below;

    "Disclaimer: PressedPlates.co.uk does not accept responsibility for illegally displayed registration plates."

    Gutted, I want some of those plates (although with a 'normal' font) but I dont want to extract the urine and potentially get a headache from plod.

    The only reason its not legal is because its on a modern car

    the font itself is vintage, and is still UK road legal but only if displayed on a car of age that would have initially had vintage font plates at the time of first registration

    basically it follows the same rules as the good old black number plate with silver fonts you may still see legally displayed on classic minis

    Apart from anything else, the plate is wonky.
    As you look at the car its higher on the left side.
    Observation more than criticism.
