Look great.

I want some - how much hassle was involved & how much were they?

Thanks.
They were a LOT of hassle. The good thing is, my grasp of the written German language is now far better, haha!!!

The biggest issue is that they refuse to ship out of Germany. I had to mail them to a friend in Berlin, who then posted them to me. Including postage they cost me about £21.

Oh blimey, impossible for me to get any then! Lol.

Look great though & £21 is nothing, barely more than the eBay specials.

That's why I did it - I wanted them to be genuine ones. My car isn't an MSport or an ///M, so i don't want "BMW MPower Munchen" all over it.

...Not sure why the dealership is called 'Muenchen' though... it's like someone wasn't watching when they named the place, haha!

They look nice and subtle mate.
I've recently ordered an eBay special one for my rear plate.
I think they look alright. Hopefully not too OTT or I'll just rip it back off.

By far the best I've used, had 4 or 5 sets from them now. They last & have all the stamps to be legal and go through an MOT.

I'm after a set of these surrounds if anyone manages to find a way of getting them & it not costing the earth.

Cheers

Go to Germany for a daytrip. You could probably go to the dealership and buy a tonne to bring back. Each dealership has it's own surrounds - it's their way of advertising rather than the horrible stickers that our dealerships seem to use.

I suppose you could buy a pair of blank surrounds on ebay for £6 odd and get the www.bmw-muenchen.de part printed as a sticker. Might even try it to see how it looks.

So nobody has found a way of getting these back to the UK?

Would they use a forwarding address?

Hey guys, looking to buy a german style (legal) plate in the UK - anyone know places? Seems like Google leads to a minefield...

Autostyle Plates in Rugby did mine over the phone a few years ago. Proper job too with no peeling etc. Their website is defunct but they’re still on Facebook.

Reminds me of when my dad sent me this from a bloke he played tennis with. It still makes me laugh that someone would get so angry they would do this.
