they are illegal (like all plates that dont use the 1 legal font) but it's your choice?

A few have been done using german fonts/spacing

Use the search there have been lots of threads on here about german plates.

seriously not worth the hassle, i had these on my mk2 golf and got pulled by the police, i was caught by the number plate recognition system as it couldn't read my plate, i got a 30 fine and told to change my plates, so not only did i have to shell out for a replacement set i also had a fine, all in all about 70. the police also told me that they and the dvla are now cracking down hard on all "dodgy" plates, so any plate that isn't standard issue ie: font, letter size and spacing will not only get you a 30 fine you will now also be reported to the dvla and a notice will be placed on the car! what this means is if you still continue to use your illegal plates and proceed to be caught the dvla will now decide whether to RE-VOKE YOUR NUMBER PLATE!!!. if they do this your car will then be technically worthless, however they will give you the chance to re-purchase your plate at a cost, but the real sting in the tail is that if they find they do not want to re-sell your plate to you, they will issue you a Q PLATE!!!. i have this on good authority as the 3 (3rd fine and now dvla notice on car) times i have been stopped all of the officers told me the same thing. just stick to standard plates, save you a lot of grief in the long run.

right now definetly cant lose 60,i got stopped with my old van for a front no plate that was 10''inches x3''inches,traffic officer was really good told me to get it off asap,no fine and no 21 day rectification,i told him he could read it no problems-he replied its that small the only way he would be able to read it easy enough would be if i was running him overLOL:

Hey legal or not, they'd be half the price in your local auto factors,
could even be made on plastic version.
