    Hi guys i am going to be orginising a group buy for pressed plates and was wondering if it would take anyones fancy, the link to the thread is here, if anyone knows of companies whose results they were chuffed with drop me a line too as ill be reaching out to a few for the highest quality cheapest deal, feel free to forward this on, its just a feler atm but if we get enough ill start reaching out and see what we can get, remember this is a good oppertunity to finally get round to getting yourself some pressed plates, be them for show or road use

    if you want pressed plates go with dubmeister, they are fantastic and do the surrounsd as well, although not cheap! but you get waht you pay for
    if you have a hunt through the post pictures thread you will find a couple photos of mine in there

    As previously mentioned, dubmeister make some pretty good plates that are road legal. I've previously had some off an eBay seller that goes by the name crafty-plates

    http://stores.ebay.co.uk/Crafty-Plates

    I've used them twice without issues.

    I got mine from germanplates.com well pleased but like others got stung with a £60 fine I'd get some dubmeister ones though, do you get a legal doc with them to wave at the buggers when (and it is a when) they tug you?

    From cleethorpes, the local idiots cause mayhem and the legitimate car enthusiast pays the price I guess! Looks wicked though

    Would also be interested if you can get this at a discount. Had pressed plates from Dubmeister for my last car and they were very good.

    Right I have spoke to them today, basically it stands like this:
    They can sort out a group buy on plates and surrounds, but they will have to be 2 separate codes.
    We need a minimum order of 20 sets of each to activate the codes.
    Once the code has been activated it will be open for 2 weeks only.
    Prices for 1 pair of plates will be £26.90 delivered
    Prices for 1 pair of plates and 1 pair of surrounds will be £41.90 delivered

    As I said this is subject to a minimum of 20 orders of each, I will make a new topic in the group buy section as soon as I get a mod/admin to let me. I will need 2 lists those who just want plates and those who want plates and surrounds. I will let this run for a few weeks then will contact dubmeister too arrange the 2 codes to be activated these will then be posted up for everyone to use for 2 weeks. Hope this all makes sense

    Thanks
    Shane

    That's not really a discount. There are loads of surrounds on eBay for cheap and the plates are only £4 cheaper lol. Still good though that they can sort it out. I have already ordered mine as I needed them to get my private plate on

    The plates are usually £30 plus delivery. The surrounds price are for the dealer surrounds here: Number Plate Surrounds they work out at about £15 per pair instead of £20

    I have sent one admin a pm as not really sure who's best to talk to about starting the group buy thread

    Thanks

    Good saving on the plates - its £30 plus £6.90 delivery so you're saving a tenner :)

    Shame I was impatient but I bought a set last week; my second set now (had a set on previous car) and very happy with them :thumbsup:
