French plates aren't road legal. You need to have the correct font and it needs to be reflective.

You could try and get away with it, i have a vinyl numberplate on my bonnet and have never had any bother. Doubt i would get away with it come MOT time though.

depending on your age, points on your licence people will cover you with classic car insurance. the car has to be 15-20+ years old, diff companies vary. i did try but as i was under 25 with 3points i had no joy. if ur over 25 or under wi no points then pm me n ill link ya

never, its just i see a lot of vw beatles and campers with the french plates, even vespers and lambreters, and im sure the local plod would love to dish out points/fine  :evil:  Not sure what it would look on a 5 though, could maby make it look a bit shit (or not)

Ive got my R5 GTT insured with Heritage Performance Classic Cars Insurance, with all mods including engine performance, they also came round to evaluate the car and with a 2500 quid price tag on the motor i only paid 158 quid for a fully comp policy with 5000 restricted miles !

And im only 25 but do have 5 years no claims and a clean licence !
