Hi all,

As you can see from my signature picture my TT likes to wear german style plates which look absolutely fantastic until the plod were following me the other night!

They said they are clamping down on plates even though mine are spaced out correctly, they did me for having a D instead of a GB under the ring of euro gold stars because my car was registered in the UK, also they werent too impressed with the Bayern sticker and the german tax sticker!!

I know I shouldnt have them on really, but apparently the reason for them clamping down is because of all the new plate identifying camera's they are putting up everywhere that can tell if your taxed and insured etc as you pass them.

Cheers Rich

Its a joke, like you say they have to make money somehow. My text wasn't the standard font but the german font isn't far off as you can see on the pic!!

Been and produced my docs and MOT producer today, oh my wallet is slightly lighter too!

Cheers

I was on the A11 today and in a layby near Mildenhall was an unmarked saloon car with a neon display in the back window stating 'DVLA check'. On a tripod next the car was a camera facing oncoming traffic...

I really like the look of the German style plates but after hearing recently about how much aggro
members were having regarding being pulled I decided to go for new black carbon surrounds and completely plain plates.
There are 3 local guys to me who have all had to remove their German style plates as well.

had mine on for over a year with no pulls :p and drive passed camera plate readers all the time. 1 good thing to come out of living in london :?

im touching wood :oops:
Don't worry you WILL be pulled as I was and now they are not just warning you like I was. They are giving out instant fines like sweets to kids. Get ready to change your plates and to do a producer. :(

If I was you I would just keep the german plates on until you get busted! if you have had them for so long now there is no point of changing the rear plate,
only problem iv got is that mine are private and once you get dun three times the dvla can take the rights to the plate off you and it would have to go back onto the original reg with no refund to me for what I paid for the private reg!
This is the third time iv been busted for illeagal plates for them being spaced incorrectly being too small and for them being german style! so im really pushing it now, hopefully I wont get them taken off me as they cost a fair wedge!! especially when I change car etc,
