I've just managed to increase the view through my rear window by over 30%, thought I'd share my solution...

I removed the dealer sticker from the rear glass which was directly above the rear spoiler [smilie=cheeky-grin: - suddenly I can see the faces of people in cars behind me.

The first thing I do when I get a new car is to take those stickers off. I hate them! Spoil your visibility and looks naff.

Exactly. Some dealerships have such huge stickers and stupid slogans that they're quite an embarrassment.

Used to hate the cars in the 80's that had a badge on the back proudly proclaiming '5 Speed' as well.

Thankfully I don't have a dealer sticker in my car as it's on the number plate holder. A lot better to be honest.

Technically we all are/have to, as if you remove the name of the person who made your N-plates (from the plates themselves you are committing an offence), so I don't see why we need another sticker on the car?.

I am not sure how things stand here in Poland in relation to number plate names and legality. But I guess a name on the plate is not bad but in the car I think it's too much.

The postcode of the supplying dealer has to be on the number plate in the UK, but I'm not sure why. I'm sure someone will enlighten me!

It's to show who made them so the police can pursue them if they make a plate up illegally....... again another step towards policing by camera.......

Exactly mate, i do too!!! And another thing, why is it in this climate of recycling, do ALL garages insist on putting their name on the plate.
Then, when you trade it in or buy a used car, they change the plate, can you just imagine the amount of waste plastic that is going into recycling bins all over the place.:oops::(

It is not illegal to have your own supplier make up a plate for you, but am sure halfords ask you to take in your log book for security.

My car did not have any dealer sticker on the rear glass when i got it :cool:
Instead there was text on the numberplateholder, but i have changed that now to "Honda Vtec Power" instead :D

Halfords do require log book and (I think) driving licence before making up any plates. It's so people can't forge them for crimes etc!

Halfords do ask for your V5 and Halford ones still have the manufacturer on them (or at least are supposed to).

From the DVLA:

The British Standard also requires that a number plate must be marked with the following information: -

The British Standard Number (currently BS AU 145d)

The name, trade mark, or other means of identification of the manufacturer or component supplier. (The company who actually make the number plate.)

The name and postcode of the supplying outlet. (The 'supplying outlet' is taken to mean acompany whose business consists wholly or partly of selling number plates.)

A non-reflective border and the Euro-symbol with the national identification letters are optional additions.

There shall be no other markings or material contained on the number plate.

My Dealers sticker was placed right up the top, so far infact that nobody can acutally see it, not even me!

Here here. Me too.

Did you remove the VTEC sticker? I kept mine because it is subtle.
And why would you wanna remove that? Don't you just love the fact that when you look in the rear-view you can see i-Vtec? Is if you need reminding whats beneath the bonnet?

If you need reminding of what is under the bonnet you are not driving it right. ;) :D
