    Hey all

    Have fitted my rear number plate holder to rear (now awaiting pressed plates when I finally order them)
    Wondered whether to get holder for front of my mk2 sline or just use the foam sticky pads?

    so yay or nay?

    Anyone got a pic with?

    Cheers

    I fitted a holder on the front of mine, took it off 5 minutes later as it doesn't look right sticking out from the front. Just stick with the pressed plate on the front, and holder on the back in my opinion.

    I agree 100%......the plate holder doesn't sit right at the front due to the slight curve in the bumper....Like MxGaza33 I tried and also took it off after 5 mins and stuck the front plate on.....looks great on the back though..:yum:

    nay from me!
    even though i own an a4 i tried the holders and just looked gash because of the curve!
    got some quality stick on pads from halfrauds, and bent plate a bit and looks loads better than in the holder!
    after doing the front i threw the rear away too and stuck that on also!
    no pics though sorry!

    Agree ... and more odd having one on the back and none on the front ... just get well made plates and keep it simple.
