The small EU front plate is only in Italy, since they traditionally had these. All other countries have the same front and back plates. In UK & Ireland, due to imports from Japan, the back plate can be rectangular in shape as well, if the plate holder on the car is such.

How have you guys mounted the european "wide" licence plate to the front of your car?
Clear adhesive.

Which one, lol? The Blue ZX3 has 98-2002 standard grill with 2002-2004 Facelift headlights. The SVTF has stock HID headlamps and the 2002-2004 face-lift grill painted like a ST170 grill. ST170 grills are 2pc and mine is a 1pc grill.

I never understood the completely unrelated number on the front. I put my actual license number on the euro plate.

Your actual license plate number could be considered completely random as well.

When I had my Italian plate I looked up how they are set up and made a "legit" one.

I live in New York, not quite sure on the laws and all that for this. Does anyone know of a reference I can check to see if it's ok to have these kind of plates on the front of my car? Or if I have to keep the NY plates.
