    Bargain for a plate thats totally illegal as its illegible for road use.

    Sorry to boast my opinion, but i think that plates like this should be outright banned and have ur car taken off you.

    sure, keep private plates, but if you have to butcher what it actually is to look like what you want it to look like, then it shouldnt be allowed... may aswell just print what you actually want it to say and drive round with it where your plates should be...

    IMHO.

    Sorry to be a boner-kill and i havent ever spoken out on this subject before, but looking at that plate just makes me think u may aswell not have plates on.

    Ouch..

    Now i am actually kinda with you on this one.

    Having ordered the plates online im not 100% happy with how the 6 is represented and am having some more plates made so that it meets the minimum 14mm letter width. All the other letters are standard and can be read, the only problem is the letter spacing.

    Now im sure there will be people that agree with me, as long as the old bill as well as ampr cameras can read the letters and they are clear then i really cant see the issue.

    I know the law is the law but come one,, you never broke the speed limit? never got any points or bent the rules a little?

    Fair enough...

    it is the 6 thats kinda the overwhelming factor in my rant.

    it does look a little bit too much like an E (which i gather you would want) but at the expense of being illegible in my opinion.

    you may have gone passed traffic cops, but they may not have been paying attenion, this time.

    I dunno how the cameras work, but if theres no-one there to stop you then you cant be sure they havent been clocked.

    dont get me wrong, i like private plates as much as the next guy, but not at the expense of risk of being pulled over every other day.

    as said agreed on the 6... i took the risk of getting a bargain off of flea bay and even though i sent him the design that i wanted

    www.leonburton.co.uk/leonsplate.jpg

    He has made the 6 look too sus.. i wanted it thinner than the rest while still being able to see what it was..

    There were T5's parked near both sets of ampr's on the way into sheffield on the A61 today.... even the camera in morrisons petrol station picked it up on the screen instore when i went for some LPG.

    Also be careful if you park on the street anywhere.

    I had a normal plate on my old car, but had a thick italic font, and a slogan under it. At 3am, whilst i was asleep a police car gave me an unattended fpn to wake up too when i started my car, nice!.

    Now i just have my initials as my plate.
