[ffrocks]in germany the sticker goes on back so its not hard to mess up but if your in the states not to many people will know what goes where so really it shouldnt matter but for peace of mind the EU typically operates the same so ill say that the sticker is in the back[gunfire]

for my birthday one year my parents got me a customized dutch license plate from licenseplates.tv (my dad is from holland). its pretty authentic looking, but not exxactllyy the same, very very close though. they used my birthdate and initials so it looks like 07-22-HD. it is my favorite accessory on my car and get comments sometimes from people asking me where its from or "what is that thing on the front of you car?". i just smile and tell em where its from. here in tulsa you see a lot of german and swedish cars with german and swedish plates. i think how unoriginal, so when i got my focus i knew i had to represent the dutch on a ford. i just think "well they have some badass fords in holland, so why not". i gotta say that if i didnt have it on the focus, id probably rock it on a dang kia if i had to lol. they really can add some flare to the front of any car i think...

So, think I'd be pulled over by the Police if I sported this front plate?



Because this is my rear plate:



And Texas requires a front plate (I'm not using one now actually) as a state law.
i have that plate for my front. i have had no problems.

Texas state law says if the car wasn't ment to have a front license plate, one is not required. i dont have one on my solstice, no place to put one. just throw the plate in your trunk. juat fyi.

xxMichaelAnthony, does The Netherlands have 2 different size license plates?? Thanks!

sorry but thats a myth. you are required to have a front plate in the state of TX. you can put it in your window in most cases a cop wont bother you about it but thats why i got the euro front plate for my car cause i keept getting pulled over. it all depends on the cop and what city your in if they are going to pull you over or not...

Good to see another SVTF owner from Tulsa. :)
hello ataru, yes sir, good ole tulsa. ive had my svt now for 25 months. bought it april 28, 2007 for $7995 with roughly 60k miles from marc miller (big mistake, they suck). i actually bought it the same day i found it on autotrader lol because i HAD to have it. in my 2 years owning the car ive seen less than a handfull of other focus svts around town. im pretty new to the forums, but i do also have an FJ account. i mostly used them to browse and research, but im trying to get my feet in the door and meet some other cool people.

i always wanted to put euro plates but not for driving on ontario roads, more for photo shoots and such.

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

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.

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.
