Touch wood guys aslong as they are the reflective style plates then i think you should be ok as these are the ones i have and i got questioned by my local ossifer when i was dropping my boys off at school before xmas and he came over and said " i was just looking at your plates " " yes " i said "are they legal then" he asked " Yes " i said again " it's just i decided to get a D instead of the GB " i said " it goes with the car being a german marque " " yea i see what you mean sir bye " i was like wow ok was just winging it really but never mind i aint complaining

Hey all...Got my new german fonted plates for xmas.Put em on today got pulled tonight S Yorks..Turns out the NICE policemen ran a check and pulled me for no insurance?????..they were happy with the plates.(german font with D in blue square) but got a producer for my insurance.Got home and checked it,turns out the southern jesse of a broker misunderstood my northern accent and put a V instead of a B on the documents.would,nt mind but I,ve used the guy for 2 years..Anyway,point is plod were ok with the plates....Oh...they have a button in the Police Volvo that says "FULL MONTY"...I,ll let u guess what its for..

at the minute with the exchange it works out around ?27 - ?30, which isn't too bad & there were no extra fees, just may take a while to arrive as the copnay that Chris (germanplates.com) uses sometimes mixes up the orders and stuff bound for the UK gets organised with USA pile, this delays postage by a week or two but they will arrive.

My first set arrives in 5 days, but the one i have on order now, have been ordered about 2 weeks ago
