Hi guys,

does anyone else have the issue where your number plates are massively overhanging at the front.

If so, what fix did you find? I just bought a number plate holder which seems to have made it worse :D

i did originally use number plate tape from halfords, but no matter how much i cleaned/held the reg on the side would still hand off. it's almost like i need to bend the reg plate itself

I've always screwed my plates on when I've ever changed any. You can get yellow or black screw head caps if you ever attach them through letters. Then I usually use double sided sticky tape too, overkill I suppose.
I don't like plates that are not attached level, either:ROFLMAO:

Mine didn't massively overhang, but I HATED my vauxhall dealer plates, they were on slightly crooked, even the front which is simple to line up! They'd used these massive silver screws that you couldn't put caps over as well. I took them off and got a set from ebay and used double-sided tape to put the new ones on, it took 2 goes to get it level as I liked though.
