    right, i'm looking to replace my current plates on my e36 compact, about time. i got a bit of a buzz for buying things for the car now since i got my alloys on!

    what style of plate looks good on a '98 e36 compact?
    any ideas how much a BMW garage will ask for, for some new plates?
    as i don't fancy getting halfords ones, with halfords plastered over it!

    I just had some done by platinum plates cost me about £20 for a legal pair delivered and took just 2 days. I had mine in 3d lettering which makes them stand out with the England flag to the left side, look good and road legal and stamped, yet not to horrible with their name on them

    I don't like anything else on a plate other than the reg letters.

    Having just put a pair on my car that carry nothing but that info...are they legal?

    THis stuff about the plate dealers details, will they fail the MOT?

    Hi, I've just had a to get a new set made actually as my car had a set of plates made in Northern Ireland with lettering which I didn't feel would be acceptable here, and they were also very tatty and let the car down. Anyway I used www.no1showplates.com who allow you to design your own plate online including size, spacing, typeface, badges, logos, borders, dealer name etc and give you a preview before you order. I paid £23.47 inc delivery for a set of standard plates with the EU GB logo on the left with a fitting kit and they arrived in a couple of days - very pleased with the service and its amazing how much better the car looks with them!

    The approach of the police does seem to vary from force to force. The Essex police seem to be quite strict as I know quite a few people who have been stopped for having anything remotely unusual, whereas in other areas I know people who have been driving round for ages with distinctly dodgy spacing and lettering with no problems.
