    Default German/euro style number plates

    I fancy changing my number plates to some of these german style number plates, with the 'D' and the german font letters.
    Anyone know if id get grief off the 5-0 for them?

    yes you will get problems, you can get pressed metal plates with uk font and gb logo which look just as good. I have them on my Astra and Signum, no issues with the old bill and both passed mot.

    legally cant have any presses metal plates unless vehicle dated prior 01-09-1975

    If you are caught misrepresenting a VRM on two ocassions DVLA wil rescind the plae leaving your vehicle not suitable for use on a road

    Wrong, you can only use the black and silver pressed plates on pre january 1973 cars.

    As long as the plates conform to the BS AU 145d standard then there is no reason you cannot fit them.

    The post office used to (possibly still do) use pressed metal plates with the yellow or white backings on their vans/trucks
