It is a show plate and I haven't been stopped with it on but as you can see why would I be stopped for the plate? It's the right size and spacing.

Nah, sorry don't like it. I'd just go static plate and remove for shows, etc.

I ordered the short plate. They just trim the excess space off either side. I also got it in carbon gel raised lettering.

I'm guessing the short won't cover the holes in the bumper from the plinth. I've just had mine resprayed as well :|

No I need to have them filled and resprayed. For now I had some Montego Blue vinyl, cut a few circles out with a hole punch and covered each of the holes. It's not ideal but it isn't noticeable unless very close up.

It has to match the splitter! Which, while I'm on the subject, is being replaced by a new one on Monday. As you can see it's seen better days!

I went with a metal embossed short plate and removed the previous mount in favour of double sided pads - only problem now is I have 2 small holes either side of the plate from the previous plate mount. Currently filled these with the old mounting screws until I can decide on a better alternative
