    Or a plate holder.
    I recomend the plate holder.

    You can drill them but that sucks, so would not recomend it.

    Yep - get a plate holder (x2)

    Awesome GTi are doing some for a fiver or so each - I have them on my car.

    The sticky pads rarely work - I tried everything, even sticky pads that apparently supergran would have issues with, yet I could pull the plates off with my tounge, that is if they hadn't all ready fallen off! Best to screw the holders in place (your normally safe to drill a few little holes).

    Another note - most pressed plates are not legal so bear this in mind for your MOT (eg. keep original plates) or pay a bit extra to get legit ones with the extra writing on them :( Regal Autosport do the legit ones

    Clean the front bumper and boot area, offer up the pressed (without the ds tape) plate to the front bumper and bend/form the plate to the curve of the bumper, once you are happy lay 3 strip's of ds tape making sure the tape does not show on the edges or top of the plate . The rear boot is the same step's but without the bending/forming.

    another way is to screw some magnets on to the bumper so the late sticks that way, but personal vote would go for plate holders

    Just want to second that - you will need to bend the plates, well the front at least

    I bought mine off ebay from craftyplates(sellers name company). I have had them on for over 2 years without any problems. One thing to note make sure they are the real pressed alloy plates as the cheap ones suffer from peeling.
