Euro Plates for 335i Couple - Victoria

I am going to get some nice Euro plates for my 335i Coupe due in 2008.

http://www.vplates.com.au/platestyles.htm#ep

Should I get two standard full size plates ? OR one Standard and one Mini Euro for the front ?

I am thinking standard for the back and mini for the front

I recently upgraded my plates and went standard for the back and slimline for the front. I think the front looks cleaner with a smaller plate.

Don't get the chunky ones... Front plates are bad enough (if I had it my way I wouldn't have my front plate on at all), So just go slimline

It is torture waiting, I have a March/April delivery and I think about the car every day!

I cannot wait. Did you order the plates?

I am certain I want the standard Euro plate size for the back of the car. It is the front that I am not sure about.

Was hoping to see some picks of the Standard and mini on the actual car before making a decision.

Plates were ordered on 31st December and arrived on the 7th of Jan!!

They look great! The dimensions are listed on the Vic Roads website link above, cut out some fake plates and you get an idea of what they will look like

Andee,

Is your dealer giving you a discount for providing your own plates?

I was told the price does not change, but registration & plates are included in the original qoute. So I would assume a discount should occur if we are supplying our own plates.

Discounts and buying a BMW seem to be mutually exclusive as I have found out.

No discount when I asked

Oh and I pick up my baby in just under 2 hours, just going to get the bank cheque, now that really hurts

Also one last thrashing of my Suby GT Liberty poor old girl

All picked up and home safe and sound !!!

Love it the small Euro plates look great on the front and the back looks great with the large Euro plates.

Dealer spent a good 2 hours with me and didn't rush anything

Three SMALL SMALL things:
There was a scuff mark on the chrome BMW edging along the scuff plate I think its called. Caused by someone rubbing their shoe when they got in/out. I had that replaced on the spot

Screw fell out of the number plate cover when I closed the boot. New number plate cover put on, on the spot

Some vaseline type substance on the vanity mirror, again fixed straight away.

100/100 for Bib Stillwell BMW - South Yarra
