They look nice and would add a nice finishing touch. I can see the attraction....

but I wonder on copyright and how the dealers (if they still exist) would view them. It could be misrepresenting that the car was LAST sold by that dealer, even if supplied new by them way back when 🤔, or it’s a bit of free marketing for them 🤷🏼‍♂️

I ordered a set of plates off Sytner Nottingham for my 51 plate B10 - £30 delivered, bearing their name. Suppose that’s the same thing.

Did they offer any different type

Looks good. I have just been in touch. He is asking £60 up front and then some design proofs to review and approve prior to print.

£60 for a pair of plates is madness, but does give you UK legal plates with the sytner logo.....

I need to do my man maths to prove that this is worth doing......

For your car rav and mine these are the correct era design
It would be good to see a genuine Sytner against these to check the size,width,font is 100% same
They do look pretty close to me

I bought some gel plates for the M3 from plates for cars.co.uk. They do show plates and road legal plates.

The will provide a footer to your design so I see no issues with adding a dealer legend. They are about £30 a pair.

Cool plate but I do find these A lot more exclusive and more appealing to the eye with the extended style number plate. Can anyone make the same plate but on and with the extended bit. This is what I mean take a look at this pic. Writing and logos on The extra area (black bit) on the bottom. That would be a winner in my eyes
