Yes - short plate. But whats the black squiggle? ( I know what it is). I'm not sure it is needed on the back of an S3? You don't need stickers to impress (what are stickers actually for? - rhetorical question)). You are driving the thing to impress!

Normally im funny about number plates but I think the short one does look better! Agree about that TT lap sticker though, might look ok on a VXR Astra or something. Could be worse though, could be a Nurburgring one lol.

Cheers for the comments guys, I've decided to go for the shorter look and I've ditched the sticker

Technically you need a stamp. Size probably isn't illegal but I've not checked.

Just checked. Size is legal, just missing the stamp on the edge

yes to the plate, here in Sydney we have a choice of 'slimline' plates which are similar in size to the cut down ones shown above and euro plates plates which are large enough to fit the plate holders on european cars.

I much prefer the small plates..

Looks well now mate and taking off sticker makes it look so much better imo.

All you need know is the 'Bradford Audi' is much smaller lettering........

The plate can be any length as long as you have (from memory) 1.5cm border all the way around and maintain the legal spacing of the letter / numbers groups as in AB12 CDE, A123 BCD. Just the other day I saw a two digit plate and the actual plate was legal and still slightly wider than my hand.

I personally have had a change of heart and prefer the wider plate on the rear with larger borders fore & aft as I think it helps keep a wider stance.

Smaller plate looks better on the car when you focus on the plate itself. But, the wider plate makes the car look better when ignoring the plate IMO.

Short is better IMO. I have short plates on my Saloon both Front and Back and I think it looks great. But each to their own as they say

I like the minimalist look it gives.... here in France (as in most European country), we don't have much choice, the 'format' is standard (euro stars & F for France below, all this in the left corner and your local area in the right corner), and we can only choose between aluminium basic plates and plexiglass so-called 'premium' plates.

Full size for me. Short ones are a bit too 'car enthusiast'.
But there again, I don't like private dabs either.
The less conspicuous the better.

Each to their own. ....and it does look nice in the red.
