    Buy a magnetic one, then wait till your on the Eurotunnel to put it on and it's only then that you find out your flash BMW has a "plastic" boot.....:Doh:

    if you're on Eurotunnel, go to the customer services. they sometimes have free ones with their logo on. If not there is an AA shop at the terminal.

    only when travelling in EU countries Alan...

    for example, Switzerland and Morocco, both require a GB sticker irrespective of number plate

    but you knew that .. :Wink:

    I didn't know that Jim.
    Mind you, the only time I ever go to Switzerland is if I'm going to the bank and I try and do most of it on-line nowadays.....:thumb: :Rofl1:

    its amazing how many you see over there without or with different badges and flag stickers . nobody really cares . till they have a lets grab some dosh day.
    i get stopped every year for no seat belts , got twice in one day this year .
    i dont require them so havent got them .

    I got a magnetic one for my Land Rover opp5 aluminium.

    Got told somewhere that if you've got one of those red/white diagonal signs on your bikes/backbox you should have a GB sticker on that too. Not certain but I've stuck one on anyway.

    When I was actually learning to drive, way back when cars were made of metal, we had a Vanden Plas Allegro (walnut dash, beige leather upholstery - gorgeous) anyway - magnetic number plates.

    Driving up the hill out of Bewdley towards Far Forest (past the Running Horse for those who know it) wen the front one blew off ..... and I don't think I was going that fast LOL

    There endeth the lesson !
