Number Plates

Hi guys

What are peoples' preferences on VIC number plates??

Standard size
Slimline
Euro Standard
Euro mini

Anyone got black background plates on Black Sapphire Metallic??

Front and back pics would be great!

Thanks
Gaz

I prefer the standard euro plates with the white background. Classy and understated.

But you can't go wrong with a slimline custom with black background, if you have a good combination in mind.

the euro mini's can look a bit awkward
the 6 numbered white on black slimlines always look good

It may be just me but I don't see the point of getting the euro mini plates on a euro car? I have full size Euro plates on my 135i here in the West and I reckon they look mint.

There's a pic of my BSM E82 here -> http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=406997 that has the Queensland slimline euro style plate, black background with white characters.

It might give you an idea of what the aesthetics of your choice would look like with the Victorian choices.

Mine has to be TAKA - XX. Want my next car to be TAKA - 1M or TAKA - M3... TAKA (R) 35 is not bad too!

If you want euro plate I will go what sparking red said. Mini front and standard back.

Went with normal slimline with no plate frame, I think it turned out quite well

Ordered mine yesterday - 5 digit personalised, white text on black background

The black small plates should (hopefully) look smart on my AW 135

I have done the euro plate thing on my current cars and wanted something a little different this time round, something a little sleeker....

I know a few are not fans of putting a car's model number on a rego... although I figure it's not a bad idea considering you have to have the rego there anyway.

Found this one on ebay... only comes in standard size as it's a custom mix plate (ie letters-numbers-letters) and vicroads don't do these in slimline.

http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI....m=250670438885

I've seen BM135I on a site for $3k a while ago... does anyone really pay these prices??

Hi Taka,

Sorry mate, didn't see you post.

There were about 20 different colour combos that could be had. Unsure of gold/silver on black. Mine was metallic white on black for 330 all up. I thought that was cheap for a small number of digits.
