there is a strange story behind it aswell, i had my reg before i met graeme my boyfriend and when he first came to visit me in birmingham he said that his dad had the same reg but with ROY at the end. so when i first drove up to northumberland and parked on the drive there was my plate next to his dads, im sure people think we got them at the same time but we didnt even know each other then. how wierd!!!

Other than that - it's perfect!!! 8)

Yeah the sticker is not only horrible, it's actually blocking your rear view

But welcome to the site... thanks for the pics

There's no way on earth that it would not block your rear view. You may be "happy" with the view, but it is definitely useful being able to see through that lower section. Amazed dealers would consider putting a sticker there.

I doubt there'd be any issue in taking the sticker off. That section of the rear is plastic anyway, so give it a go.

I took my sticker off on second day of ownership. I thought he's not paying me to advertise, so he can --ss off !! They've also got their name and number on the reg. plates. They are going next.

Yep - same here. Would love to replace mine with german plate (With my reg no obviously!) but then I'm open to getting done

Also need to get rid of the tax disc holder. Why on earth should I be a mobile advert for a dealer!

Those stickers bug me too. Guess it was the first thing I changed on the car when I got it. I don't so much mind the reg plate and tax disc advertising but the same principle holds. ...Why should we give them free advertising?

i do respect what you are saying about the sticker and have thought bout taking it off but it has never restricted my view. it may make a difference if i do remove it but it doesnt bother me at the mo.
