    We have just bought a private reg for our B8 which is 6 characters so I’m wanting to fit a slightly shorter rear plate as the B8 recess is perfect for this and the other model avants I’ve seen it tidies up the back end nicely! Does anybody have any pictures of their car with a shorter plate fitted?

    Thanks

    @DickoB8

    I'm looking to do the same, what are you planing to do with the front plate - off centre or place it in its usual position?

    Will be just fitting a standard sized one on the front as the recess is designed for a standard one and looks daft with a short one in my opinion

    Have a full size plate on the rear, but shorter on the front.

    Now that looks well but you have the different grill with no recess, for now I’ll be keeping the standard grill but I do like that ^^^

    Yes I guess with no recess the plate size doesn't matter as there is no real edge either side.

    Sorry it isn't an avant, but the recess is borderless same as the avant, there are factory holes underneath to fit a plate so just have to make sure you don't go too short else these will be on show. Have seen the shorter ones on avants and looks spot on, just no pics to share!

    Yo @Russboy how did you manage to put the S4 badge on the mesh grill. Custom bracket? Would you mind sharing the details. Thanks.

    Cool, although you can't order from that seller as they are no longer registered.

    Tip for you, spray the mounting threads and bracket(s) black first so that they don't show through the grill.

    @DickoB8 b8 Not an A4 but I went for a short rear gel plate on my A6 as I’ve got a 5 digit plate.

    That’s looks well, I’m yet to order a short plate for the rear yet I’ve just slapped some standard ones on for now. I’ll definitely get one ordered soon!
