This is what you and I are after isn't it?
That postcode - is it B31 2TB?

Had a go at amending the image.

I have done the Rover logo and the postcode:



Now I have to to add the BS marker and...

get someone to make plates just like this so I don't get hassle at MOT time.

To be quite honest I think it's all a bit ridiculous where you can't get plates made up that are almost identical to plates by the manufacturer or dealership, simply because of some retro-active law.

Took my car for the MOT yesterday, to the same place it went last year, and they pointed out my plates and asked if I had another set for the MOT, I said no and explained it had passed last year. Their reply was "if asked it was not tested with these plates" so next year will need to make sure I have a legal pair. Been running cars with this plate for years and first time its caused interest, so maybe hotting up. See pic below for spacing,

Well my beloved L Jay passed her MOT just about a month ago with her original plates on. The plates pre date the various marks and are totally plain! She still passed though!

The regulations about BS marking, postcode etc., only apply to number plates on vehicles registered after 1st September 2001 and new number plates fitted to pre 2001 cars.

That is right Ray. My car was first registered in September 2004 which is why I am concerned about this.

I have now found an eBay seller who is advertising Rover 75 plates that are 100% legal with the postcode and BS marker. I have contacted them to see if they can put the MG ROVER GROUP text on them.

Cool MG Rover plates update

Update on this - I have just ordered some from an eBay seller who is going to supply a fully legal set of plates with the postcode and BS marker and the MG Rover Group text and logos.

The only compromise I will have to live with is the postcode is that of the suppliers rather than Longbridge but it should be tiny so I am happy with that.

When I get the plates I'll post some pictures and details of the supplier.

Plates arrived this morning with:

MG ROVER GROUP text
Rover and MG logos
BSAU marker
and Longbridge postcode!

Bonus!

I am just off to get some sticky fixers so I can put the plates on the car. I'll post an image of the plates a bit later.
