Talking Anyone have a EURO Plate? Where can you buy small ones?

Is there anywhere you can buy small license plates with international delivery online?

My license plate is 6 characters and the standard ones ugly
I found this

But the max is 5 Characters
Does anyone know of one similar Euro (shorter,wider) style that can handle 6 characters.

Please link me if you do!!

Cheers

In Germany there are three size euro tags. The standard is seven digits long. The shortest is four or five I think.

What are you looking for? I could maybe go to the place that makes the tags locally here. ???

But can't you just order a euro-style plate in New Zealand. My friend has them on his Porsche and I saw plenty of them when I lived there.

Check out the personalised plates website...

Nah I want the small one similar to the image i showed above, but the one I showed is max 5 letters.

My registration is 6 letters.
So i just want something like the one above, as short in length as possible, and fit 6 letters

The one at plates.co.nz is almost 2x as long as the one i showed in the image above lol...
Thats why I dont want it

Ah I see.

Well probably the shortest you will find are the Belgian plates. Check out the photo of my car. They don't have anything on them other than letters & numbers. But I don't think they are much smaller than standard NZ plates.

What about getting a vinyl sticker made? My front plate is a sticker. Then you can have it any size you like. May not be strictly legal... but then I don't think plates from other countries would be legal either.

Well... I know Griots Garage sells them in the states.

Are you looking for a LEGAL tag? Or just some German custom tag?

I can't find any online website that sell vinyl sticker, else I was considering that option.

I dont think either is "legal" but I don't care too much, so I think if i just find a place that will sell a small plate I should be okay. Police won't really care that much if its plate, but if sticker I might have more trouble.

So for now I just wanna find a small plate, fit 6 letters

Yeahhh your plates nice. Is any of your plates real plate? or both sides sticker?

Where can I get a plate, but similar size to yours?

OK, well don't think I can help with a plate. I'm just using the rear plate that was delivered by the government.

Any vinyl sign writer should be able to whip you up a sticker. Mine was custom-made in about 10 minutes. You just need to know the font the numberplates use so it looks realistic.
