Hey Guys thanks for the comments about me,:smokin:

I think it would be a good idea for anyone with a Imported car with the smaller number plates on, to print out the above regulations & keep a copy in your car to show the jealous Police Office that its a legal plate;) thus saving them time so they can catch real criminals in hooded tops & baseball caps:D (Optional if you print this bit, cos they might just read it)

My Plates for all GTR forum users are minus 20% discount + free P&P;)

Thats exactly what I do mate and had to use it once so far. They were a little bemused and I said they could keep the printout and show there friends, he did have a little joke and said he would read up about it.

Best regards Alan
