Re: Theft resistant number plates

I think I'd rather have them unscrew the plates and steal from a petrol station than have them taking all those things to my bella!

Re: Theft resistant number plates

And the new spec reggie plates only have to deter them for 3 minutes....lets face it, it will take them that long to unpack their toolkit.

Last time I took a number plate off it took me a lot longer than 3 minutes!. Mind you I cared about damage to the car.
