    We are now able to offer Legal Pressed Plates via Europl8
    with Diesel Tuning UK Ltd


    £35 including postage


    [​IMG]

    We are pleased to announce, our UK spec 3D Embossed License Plates have passed the relevant BSAU 145d testing and are 100% legal for use on the public highway. All legal plates will have a BSAU 145d mark and the sellers mark laser etched onto them, therefore it will have Diesel Tuning UK Ltd DH9 9UU in small font at the bottom.

    These plates are available either blank; with the GB badge or Scottish badge on the left handside.

    We are fully registered with the DVLA to offer this service to customers. If you wish to purchase please email me at the below address.

    What do I need to get a plate made up?

    We as the number plate supplier will need to see the following documents which will enable us to confirm your name, address and entitlement to the registration number. We require the below documents to be emailed over to us (there are other options but these keep things simple for us) on
    plates@diesel-performance.co.uk :

    · Driving license
    · Vehicle registration certificate V5

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Are they really road legal?

    They are indeed. Europl8 spent a large amount of money on the testing and modifications to the European plate in order to get it road legal. It took 8 long months and many grey hairs.

    Are the letters and number really 3D Embossed, and how do you make them?

    Yes they are 3D embossed, without going into great detail, the blank plate is placed between a male and a female dye, the press is then lowered and the plate is pushed into the female dyes, thus raising the digits above the plate. We then take the plate and run it through a machine that places the black onto anything that is raised ( the digits and the plate lip.) Jobs done.

    What is the quality like?

    Fantastic. We have imported German machines and had UK spec dyes made from Germanys top plate/dye manufacturers. The plates are single layer just like the European style. WE DO NOT USE CHEAP PRODUCTS.

    Are they reflective? Are they Metal/Alloy, Will they rust?

    Yes, Yes & No. (in that order).

    What is the delivery time?

    24-72 hrs. Most orders go out with this time frame, during busy times/holidays etc, this might be a little longer.

    Can you alter a letter or the spacing?

    No, we can't. Doing this will make the plate illegal and we can be finned £2500 and have the machinery taken from us, so please do not ask.

    I've given you the wrong registration number, can I changed it?

    Because we try to make the plates as fast as possible, there might be a chance that they have already been made. We will check the production line, if they have been made, they will carry on to the end of production and posted to you, even if they have been made with the incorrect details you have provided. If we have been notified in time, we shall exchange the details. The plate order will be treated as a new order, hence the delivery time will be later. Please note, we do not monitor emails 24/7. We can not be held responsibly for your mistakes.

    I have made a mistake on my details, will you do another pair for free?

    NO. If we make a mistake we do not ask you to contribute to the cost of remaking the items, so if its your mistake, please don't ask us to do the same.

    You have put the wrong registration on?

    If it is our mistake, we will remake the plate free of charge. We will check all correspondence from yourself, and will require a digital photo of the said plate, before replacing.

    How do I fit them?

    If you are fixing them with screws, place the old plate over the top of the new plate and drill through the existing holes. If you are using plate frames, screw the frames to your car and then open the frames with the special key, place in the plates and close the frame. ( Keep the key in a safe place.) Sticky pads, make sure you use plenty. Velcro.


    From 1st November 2008 it is against the law to supply show plates to UK customers which contain a UK registration number. So we have withdrawn this option, therefore please do not ask for these.

    Any prices? I've been thinking of pressed plates for a while, but didn't fancy taking any chances ordering on line. Having ordered through juicy already takes them worries away.

    Hmm, highly tempted but unless they are scanned, I cannot email any documents to anyone. Bugger and ffs.
    If emailing, how can you accept scanned documents as genuine anyway????? I'm confused.:shrug:

    Hi Juicy Jen,

    Awesome service.

    Really wanted to get some of these from Dubmeister but always put me off having to send my original docs. So a scan and email of them is fine Jen? Just waiting on some TT Vents that don't seem to be materialising. I'll be buying a set of these instead if that happens. Great.

    Just ordered a set of these. Very quick communication from Andrew. Can't wait to get them on. I actually photographed my documents with my DSLR as I don't have access to a scanner and that was absolutely fine for them.

    Good times.

    Just received my plates this morning. VERY HAPPY with them. Look fantastic. With them being full legal, if you have 35 quid, its a total no brainer for me as they look WAY smarter and more professional than the plastic ones that are popped ln by the garage to promote themselves....

    Will put a couple more pics up when they are on. Just need to get me an appropriate metal drill bit now for a clean finish.

    I think a pair of these are on the cards in the next few weeks. What's the best way to fit to the rear was thinking of a holder then stick plate to that

    Cheers

    Just email the address ask state you would like to place an order for the pressed plates. The chap Andrew will sort everything else for you and ask for your docs.

    Regarding attaching the plates at the rear. I spent a little time getting neat alignment for the bolts, then very carefully drilled the holes through my pressed plate for use with the bolts. I then bought matching colour die cast model paints from humbrol that match the sections the bolt goes through on mine. Through the black on one side and through the yellow on another. If you decide to go the "drill and bolt" route I'll happily post you the two colour enamel paints to paint the bolts. I used maybe three or four little paintbrush loads so there is PLENTY left and I have absolutely no use for them. Just PM me if you decide. Looks fine for me, and I'm quite OCD on the detail.

    can these be clear coated for chip protection or would doing so render them illegal?

    Ordered mine on Thursday morning. Not sure when to expect them but what are people using to fix them on? I've got a surround for the rear but don't want a surround for the front (looks tacky) so might go with some double sided or some velcro stuff?

    All,

    Looking at ordering a set of these soon, mainly due to the impressive feedback from everyone! Out of interest how are people attaching these plates to the car?
    1. Nut & Bolt?? If so what size?
    2. The strong sticky pads used for the plastic plates?? Will these even work for this type of plate?

    Apologies for it sounding like a bit of a bone question, however I don't want to mess them up!

    Cheers

    Using sticky pads (strong black coloured ones) which look really neat and tidy once fitted.
