    Got these 4D number plates, with a 35% tint , and 5mm thick acrylic letters/numbers,
    not strictly legal but they are correctly spaced, the font is correct and they are still reflective, a chap at work who I got the idea from says he's had them on for about 6 months with no problems,
    so fingers crossed :)

    Mmm, there called 4D plates but I get your point, probably more 3D (I think)
    anyway a bit different, I like um. They look really good, together with the tint.

    Probably, they slot into a surround, so a quick, easy job. :)

    Yep, thought about the dirt trap possibility, we'll see when I put them on, they do look really good when on the car, but everybody to their own. :)

    Look like normal plates until you get closer to the car, apart from the tinted acrylic plate, when your close to the car, you can see the digits are 3d , look good, a bit different. :)

    They’d look good on a Tardis, you’d definitely get that 4th dimension......

    Length, breadth, depth are the traditional 3 dimensions with the fourth usually accepted as time. Do these change over time then? :)

    They're not that dissimilar from the type of plate fitted in the 70s ie a separate letter/number fitted to a plain plate :rolleyes:
