As the title suggests, where can i get a pair of german style pressed plates?
The Plate Man - German Plates - German Number Plates - European Style Number Plates
German Number Plates UK: Custom Pressed German Plates Made Fast Delivery
Dubmeister - Number Plates / Alloy Wheels / Chassis Parts
Got mine from Dubmeiter, very good service and quality plates
Cheers lads, What do you use to get them on the car? some kind of double sided sticky?
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
No to plate holder's i think they look to bulky. I have a set you can have.
Thats what i was thinking Col, I want them to sit as flush to the bumper and boot as i can get them. Any suggestions?
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
Also do you guys get much trouble from the rozzers about the font?
I have had no issues at all.........
Thats alright then. so they can understand class when they see it.
I'll be getting my order on tomorrow then (pay day)!
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.
