There's nothing worse than an old car with modern number plates. It's like when you used to see British Leyland cars with Halfords white plastic hubcaps stuck on. :evil:

Looking to try that http://www.dealerplates.co.uk site as my Sterling has an original dealer plate oin the front, but the rear plate has been changed for one of those 'modern' EU flag/GB plates. Anyone dealt with dealerplates.co.uk before?

Twice so far. Have a before and after of my Sierra:

Generally very pleased. The chap doing them only has access to a certain range of fonts for the dealer lettering and reproduces graphics on a 'near as I can get it' basis, so if you're a complete perfectionist then to do appreciably better you would need to take the old plate to a graphic designer and pay them a fair old whack to get a replica done. At £25 quid a pair these weren't a bad compromise, not sure how durable they'll be though, they seem to be the same construction as standard modern font plates.

Also had some done for my dad's Punto, including a twin pinstripe around the plate, they do look good. It should be the law to have the wider digits on a pre-2001 car!! :lol:
