Hi .. Did this work for you ?

I've recently picked mine up and had the dealer put my 4 digit plate onto the car.
No Plate holder, just stick pads onto the plastic bit - same position as yours.
My plate was 355mm wide - and the min legal height 111mm - but I found that it interfered with the front parking sensor.

I've just put a smaller one on 330mm x 111mm (minimum I can get away with) - and re-mounted it further to the off-side edge.
I would have thought that it now clears the remit of the parking sensor - but I'm not entirely sure it has (I have had the occasional error message - "Clean Sensors" or "Front Sensors unavailable" ..

I've not had the car long enough - and when I've driven it my minds on other things - so I've not really noticed whether the sensors work or not - The message clears pretty rapidly as soon as I move off..

How did you get on ?
