Over the weekend I saw some 3D number plates and really want to get a pair. I was wondering if anyone on here has a pair and if so where did you get them from?

I want the purchase to be as simple as possible so the plates will need to be road legal. I wouldn't know where to start on how to get a road legal plate, I just don't want to keep getting pulled if I get some because I'll just stick the originals back on.

Looking forward to your replies,


Cheers

By law all plates sold in the UK must be street legal.
Describing any plates as for show or off road use only is against the law.
They must all be BSAU 145D compliant.

Yes I see what you mean steads but the I've been reading the lettering needs to be a certain width, got to have an uk badge on, so on and so forth. I don't want the style of the lettering 3d either I want the actual lettering to stand out of the plate.

I've used that seller twice now. Ordered them Thursday and on my doorstep by Saturday morning. Highly recommended, if you're getting them.

The half rounded anti-theft screws are useless.

Look for Richbrook anti-theft bolts.
They seem to be the best around.

As they arw aluminium they won't rust but possible oxidisation may occur.
I believe they are powdercoated so the risk of chipping should be minimal.
