Luck you, I'm looking for an estate with that colour and trim combination too (and no privacy glass) but nothing this year so far.

They do appear to be pretty rare, it took me 6 months but it was well worth the wait. All you see around is Black, White or grey and nearly all are with black trim :( For me privacy glass was also a no, makes the car look like a van !

Nice to be a bit different :)

First run yesterday, 220 miles and it was in $hit weather. Recorded 44.8 mpg overall with the air-conditioning on, but bear in mind I do resect speed limit's especially with my speed limiter in the passenger seat. Very pleased with that I have to say :D

Just got these back from the Reg. plate makers. Just the insurance to notify and get the number off of retention and I can get them fitted with 3M VHB double sided pads. :) There will be no number plate screw heads on my registration plates :eek:

Bottom right hand corner, I was assured that they were UK legal. :)

I had them made at Plates For Cars in Dublin. I have used them for years and never had a problem with them in the past with MOT. I find they are a good quality plate and they don't appear to deteriorate over time. :)
