    Got myself some nice pressed plates , and they are a bit heavier than i expected, So I am curious to how other people have fixed theirs to their cars.

    I usually fix my standard plates with adhesive tape, as I dont like to see the screw head cover things.

    Has anybody else fixed theirs on with adhevive pads? or have you screwed them on?

    Thanks guys and girls!

    Thanks staz. They look spot on!!!:icon_thumright:


    Not sure mate, my v750 come through in a couple of days from the dvla. I sent that to dubmeister to get my plates made. Now they are here, just a quick trip to the local dvla office to get the v5 and tax disc sorted etc and then job done :)

    Oh and Staz, when you use them , do you double them up? or are they fat enough to fill the recess between the plate and bumper if you know what I mean:)

    Just need to know how many to order thats all!

    well there are 3 sorts really.

    Rns-e with the black buttons

    Rns-e chrome same as above only has shiny buttons :)

    New rns-e looks the same as chrome, but has a media button , hi res screen , 32gb for sd cards and some other stuff probably

    :)

    Don't you have the foam matt behind the plate?

    They come in a couple of different thicknesses and I had the thicker ones. They're in packets of 10.
