Do you use GB/F/E/I/<whichever> stickers?

If you take your car abroad do you have "GB" stickers?

I used to from the UK, until I moved here when, firstly
it marked you a tourist ripe for smash 'n' grab and
secondly (more obviously) I got a French registered car.

I believe they are required by international law to indicate the country of registration.

I have euro plates - paid &#163;6 for the privaledge when I got the Brera..

which means you don't need the stickers ;-)

The one time I've taken a car of my own abroad I used them - magnetic ones. When I took them off I found they'd bleached the paint beneath them. Took about 4 months to get Halfords to pay for the repair.
When I go abroad again, I'll get marked number plates to avoid the issue.

Other, when I lived in Italy I used a euro plate style sticker. I thought it looked a bit cooler than the standard GB on a white background. Also, not particularly wanting euro plates permanently it served as a useful temporary measure.

European law says you must use the stickers or equivelant (Euro plates etc.) when travelling abroad.I always use Irish ones as the French dont hate us quite as much as they do the English!

I asked Van. if we could have had a Cymru or Ecosse sticker instead of our GB one. He is half Welsh after all and according to everyone South of Watford Gap Gateshead is in Scotland
