    The plates should be mounted on a proper 'brick' at the front (like on UK S14s) to ensure that its properly supported.

    It could be equally argued that the overhanging plates that we all originally got (in the UK), which use identically sized writing and are totally accepted, could be considered a risk to pedestrians in the event of an accident. A bit like bumper scoops having to be meshed for the ESVA.

    Its not though. Its the same size as the one on the rear bumber (see my sig). UK standard size has to be 4x4 size or brick size.

    Yes but a 4x4 square plate would fit in the rear space, i presume. Wouls this not then comply with the UK size lettering??

    That's my point though. Most imports could be made to accommodate a plate with standard UK lettering, but plates with import size lettering are fitted and accepted. There is no difference in letter size with my small plate, and it easily falls within the minimum border requirements.

    What they should pull you for is if you have Jap sized writing or a TINY 7 letter plate the size of the actual mounting...
