Is the white dot in the pic for display purposes or thinking about leaving it there? if so the long arm of :police: will literally pound you for it they arent too good with making it look like something else.

I like it but tbh i wouldnt pay a fortune for it as its just for a specific car would rather something with meaning to myself.

To a honda dealer maybe worth a few ££££££££££

Each to their own and it does look good

haha, I will have a white capped screw there, but that image was only done on paint and the actual dot won't be as big.
Im hoping the police round here will have better things to do :rolleyes:

Well I would never advise trying to make the plate look different. Cos technically you could be done for various things...starting from petrol theft...:worms:

What ever I paid for a plate I would have to be sure that if I fell on hard times that I could sell it for at least what I paid for it.

Could be pulled up on spacing too should be C11 VHC rather than C11VHC. Not being anal but the rozzers are very keen around me.

With a private plate you only ever buy the privilege to use it. Ownership is technically retained by the Minister/ ministry of transport, 3 tugs by the rozzers and the plate is taken off you.

I did by the plate recently but I dont think they update their website very often, the DVLA own it, and there are companies that say they are cheaper, but theyre actually not when you add their hidden charges :/

the orange car was off google, but i hope to get an orange one... and you would be correct if the plate was set out like XX11 XXX but as its X11 XXX it is an old style reg and is fine on any car after 1985 :)
