    Default Number plates

    What are people's experiences with number plates?

    I'm looking at getting a new set - I'm not planning on any illegal spacing but am considering something like a Vauxhall badge in place of the Euro Star GB option. How seriously do the rozzers take things like that if the letters are all spot on? And if the plate has no manufacturer postcode are they likely to care?

    Any advice/experiences appreciated!

    Both those will get you pulled by a Traffic Officer if they're in the mood/having a crackdown on plates. The Vx logo will obviously attract their attention first and then they'll see the lack of supplier postcode.

    Ya takes yer risk.

    My letters and spacing are all kosher, but I have a St Georges cross instead of the Euro sign, and the background is honeycombed. There's no postcode, so I guess it's classed as a showplate officially, but it went through an MOT OK with them on last month There's still plenty of wacky typefaces around, and plenty of words, names etc made by improper spacing so if there's a crackdown, I reckon you'll be well down the list with just a VX logo and no postcode. I suppose it depends on how bad do you want it .....roll ye dice etc....

    But keep about £30'ish aside just in case!
