  1. I know this is a massive thread revival but did you get anywhere with this? I want to get sensors fitted and seeing this thinking after market is best/easiest?
  2. I’ve spent a small fortune fixing bumps like this. I had a non-fault applied to me years ago, didn’t even claim any money, insurance went up a lot. With the amount of cars I have I just have to take it on the chin. You should be good for under £100 for that. As a slow impact I would say paint only. I won’t bore you all with pics of my problems!
  3. Mine was fine until I had the aircon serviced and refilled, same rattle noise. It still works ok though
  4. It’s been a while but I finally fitted the correct spare. Problem with the dip in the boot has gone away. Thank you all for your help and to those using eBay, don’t get a space saver even if it says it’s for a fiesta!!
  5. The police have a few theories, mainly the plates get used for transporting stolen cars as the thieves know that you’ve taxed and insured it so ANPR won’t ping. Also for ringing but less likely. The annoying thing is the amount of parking tickets, congestion charge and being pulled over that happens. I sorted it last time by being issued a new reg by DVLA for free. Haven’t seen anything on the last set (diff car) but no doubt I’ll get pulled over loads. Can’t complain as they are doing their job but it’s always tense until they get the crime ref as they don’t know whether you’re the criminal or not.
  6. No, these are domed star heads but there’s a little spike in the middle so you need the special tool. 1 - pliars would get there in the end 2 - the car would be damaged 3 - if they bust the spike it won’t be easy to get off So a good deterrent but not if someone’s equipped. Having had two sets pinched in the past I think I’ll stick to standard fittings and just hope it’s not going to happen again. Weirdly one set was a personalised plate which I bought as they are less likely to be nicked. London. [emoji2371]
  7. Coincidentally I’ve just bought plates for my car. The supplier has some security screws so I’ve bought some to see if they are any good. Will report back!
  8. You can get 3M ones from amazon or Halfords. That plate won’t be going anywhere with that.
  9. Having had two cars’ plates pinched in less than a few years, I’d be looking to make it harder to remove than easier. It’s a huge pita For what you want they look fine. Have you thought about just tape on the back if you want a clean look?
  10. Smart repair means they do a smaller patch rather than the whole bumper. They colour match quite well so there’s not a huge amount of blending areas in etc. Plus it’s quicker so less labour cost.
  11. Now why did you do that?!!! I agree. It can’t be unseen. A bit like the i8 looking like it’s giving birth to a 911...
  12. The good news is that as you don’t appear to have metallic paint (on my phone so pic tiny) they should be able to match up a smart repair nicely. Usually they quote per corner so have a look around and remember it’s best to go on recommendations as they are mainly franchises
