I'd probably have a go at making my own before dishing out cash for one to be honest. Could probably get out of it for $25ish at a hardware store.

Quick google found this...

Anyone know where i can get one?
NOOOOOO!!!! Your car isnt a Vl turbo or an alfa romeo, and as such you should keep your # plate centred.

+1.. You can get slimline plates at Qld transport which fit nice and then you can hold them on with double sided tape or make a couple of L brackets that you drill up into the bumper just above the mesh. Easy to remove and no visible holes

I was actually thinking of making up some L brackets, cos it does look silly on the side... I'll see how I go this weekend. (if not hungover)
I'd really like some personalised plates, but I'll hold off for a couple more months. Another thing to add to the to-do list. It never ends!

It's got that fat sticky double sided tape. No chance at all of it falling off (it takes me a good 5 mins to take it off). That way it is strong and no holes were drilled.

Thanks!
