    Any one done this mod??? I personally think the usa spec rear boot lids with the smaller plate recess look way better than the uk one.

    if i got hold of one would it be a straight swap over????

    bin on the lookout myself to match the shortend plates i have on my car

    should imagine there straight swap

    can find them in the US but the shipping charges make it not worth it

    Yeah yanks love them, same as them going out of there way to remove the bumper markers but the japs go out there way to put them in.

    Get on Audizine and maybe attempt at a swap?

    I see the appeal but its not worth the hassle just so you can have a smaller no. plate?

    i think the biggest cost really would be the shipping from america. shame now one has come up with a number plate reduceing surround.

    any one know why the american market has a smaller recess???

    traffic police may have an issue with the size of the plate if you did have one !
