Re: import size number plates for subarus

I believe ( I've been told by a police officer that was at my house a couple of days ago ), it's not so much to do with the size of the plate as it is to do with the size of the characters on the plates and their spacing. I have a motorbike plate on front of my scoob and it's totally legal to do that, bought from halfords, if you know somewhere that has different sized plastics, so long as the letters are sized and spaced correctly, it's not illegal to have a smaller plastic ... a normal motorbike plate is a bit too big, if I could be bothered, I could shave around the edges of the plate and it would still be legal, I cant be bothered so I put up with a bit of overlap ... is all protection for rad anyway ...

Re: import size number plates for subarus

I do prefer the Jap plate on the front but I've taken mine off about a yr ago. I've bought a sticker type numberplate which goes over the splitter on the bottom of the front bumper. It's not legal so I carry the original plate in the boot with a couple of zip ties.
