I'm also wondering why the EU-plates? Or was it a matter of it doesn't matter?
Weeelll, it does and it doesn't. Firstly and most importantly - that's the only option for the first set. I can order EU-less plates now that I have these, but I wont. Although this is not a very strong opinion, but I don't want EU-less plates here. I explained this elsewhere already, so I'll just repeat
There is no way that this car would be feasibly registered here originally as RHD. The change in rules allowing RHD happened after the introduction of EU plates, so old style plates simply don't belong here. Having EU-less plates would be just indicating to others that I car too much about how my numberplate looks. And of course I do, but I don't want non car-people thinking that! Or worse, associating me with some sort of nationalist that can't tolerate eu-insignia even on a numberplate.
So yes, I like white plate more, especially on a white car, but in my opinion, there needs to be a benefit of the doubt that it could be the original plate. Originality overrides aesthetics.
You need non EU plates to make it a proper brexit.
Nah, I like to think it's the opposite. Putting EU logo on an ex-British car is subtly adding insult to injury
And I'd like to have EU plates on the Daimler too, but that will probably be veto-ed by the other shareholders.
