Apparently it's legal to have smaller than UK spec number plates on an import- check it out!

section 5

Fair enough there are 2 'conditions' but it's not difficult to arrange the number plate mount is it? Tee hee.

BUT do you reckon the "conditions" would mean that it only applies to, say supras after 96 when they ceased production here?? What are peoples thoughts? Anyone know conclusively??

Hopefully this'll be good news to some people!

My MR2 is an import and the rear square plate as pretty small numbers (smaller than the new UK plates). I havent seen many like that and I havent been pulled for it.

My front numberplate is a custom size but with legal sized letters, not been pulled for that either.. I think its up to the copper that is following you..lol.

I dont think I'll pass my MOT with my current front plate tho. :blink:

cars are'nt allowed to have bike type plate fonts.. but alot of imports have to have them due to the size of the opening.. mine are the same.. small on the back and tight to each other.. with bike type fonts.

unless i buy a plate with fewer letters then i would be stumped if told to remove.

I wish we didnt have to have front numberplates either.. my MR2 is going into the body shop tomorrow to have the nose all done so you couldnt even tell it used to have a front mounted plate.. moved my plate to the air intake tho.. wish I could get rid of it all together. Spoils the lines of the car.

i could make a phone call this week to the boys in the know with the blue lights on their cars......see what they know.

have a couple of very good mates in the plod :thumbsup:

Now THAT would be useful- although apparently most of them don't know either... so carry a print out with you! lol.

So, if I get my nose cone redone with the number plate space too small for standard I'd probably get away with it... tee hee
