I might just get some new plates made for these, with the MGR logo on the bottom of the plate.

I have to say I only bought the tourer, because of it's number.

Like the twins Brian, they look good together. Yep well spotted, my Reynard 1500 Special Allegro.
With regard to number plates, we will always differ, by my number is clearly read as P80 VER. My point about the MOT literally was just a note not a complaint, and I will be aware of that for the next MOT.

Do you have Marinas?

Hi, i got plates for 2 ZTs so far both being the right size to full the area on the boot, they came from ebay with no borders, no flags and no logo and all have passed mots.

I cant stand the way dealers have their names in your back window as well as your plates, my car is not a free advertising and the 1st thing i do then i get a car is remove them!

Default Correct?

Hi there, I noticed that everybody gets hung up on the style of the Rover logo, but it is the MG logo imho that is wrong. The original MG Rover logo had an MG logo that was full colour, like on the pylons, golden, with red lettering and border. The "replica" ones discussed here are all see-through, the yellow of the plates (or white for that matter) is coming through.

Even more so, I am wondering, the only reason for me to want MG Rover Group plates (and I would) is to bring my car somehow back to its origins, as it had orignally been registered by MGR for about a year. But then using private plates, cherished plates or whatever, N reg'd 75's which have only been introduced as S models, that kind of makes the pretend-original MGR logo look like a fake from the outset, or not?

I think they are a close enough example of the original artwork used..which I have seen.

Members are using these plates as a nice way to bring up their number plates from obscure car dealers logos and damaged plates..At the price the seller has made these available,they make an attractive purchase.

Default Indeed

Indeed, and that is why I am thinking of getting some myself. But I am also thinking of getting private plates. And for me - just for me, in my own opinion - both don't work together.

Wandering slightly off topic, my son was stopped a few years ago when he passed a police car on the inside on a dual carriageway. He had 'special' (rude!) numberplates and the policeman, determined to book him, said they were missing the BS mark and so were illegal. My sharp eyed son played dumb and asked the policeman to show him what he meant on the police car. It didn't have any and the embarrassed policeman immediately wished my son a safe journey home!
