Small number plate size

I have removed the number plate plinth from my front bumper and moved the plate to the side (just because I prefer it). I have cut the number plate down but it would look better with a small plate.
Imported vehicles can have a smaller plate (bizarrely) and I would like one the same size. Anyone got any suggestions of the size or supplier of these?

As I understand it, UK cars must conform to the min size of space between letters/numbers and also the border.

That said, you can cut down the size massively by just using the min gaps. I moved my plate from front centre to sit lower than the nose (not to the side) and had a new plate made with all the min size gaps - looked far better. I got it made from a company on ebay.

The min size gaps are all available on the net (11mm border IIRC)

Or get a private plate with 5 or 6 digits you can then run a much narrower plate

Had a small plate on my Cerbera, not legal, but never got pulled. Got it made at Craigsplates.

My GTV failed it's MOT this year because the rear number plate, S8 GTV, was too small - I had cut it down. This was the first time in 8 years of ownership with the same plate. Had a new one made, drove home and refitted the old one.
