    I had them on my Vectra, will try and find a picture.

    http://www.dubmeister.co.uk/

    Click on the Legal Plates section.

    They've got the correct font spacing and are painted a special reflection colour, they also have the postcode and BS mark meaning they are totally road legal. Old Bill and MOT tester's saw and OK'd mine.

    They look the mutts nuts in person too.

    The website will point you to a local dealer that sells them, you take your V5 and they get them all made up and sent to your local dealer to collect.

    My nearest one was Regal Autosport.

    Here's some pics, and yes I am aware that it wasn't a VXR :P I was getting the plate for putting on my next car which was planned to be a VXR until I found out the insurance company would want half as much as the cost of the car each year in premiums!

    You should be able to make out the ridges where the plate is pressed, I wish I'd taken pictures of it on a table not just on the car. In the flesh it looks a lot more "pressed", and is totally road legal.
