No, they are a weird bigger than normal size. To my eyes the number plate was too big so I removed thr (UK market only I believe) plastic plinth and just have a standard square plate on standoffs.

Just take the dimensions off the plinth, or if you look on the websites they offer 2 sizes, choose the larger.

no its the opposite, the giulia plate is smaller than the standard black & silver square plate.

the one I bought is to large & everyone seems to list the size that is too large.

Has no one had this problem ?

Framptons the best supplier of Black & silver plates can only supply me a 11 5/8" x 8 3/8"

I have measured the plate size as needing to be; 10 1/2" x 7 1/2”

Classic alfa said; You cannot get a number plate made to the correct period Italian size, you need to cut it down to fit inside the frame

but if I cut down a 11 5/8" x 8 3/8", some of the lettering will be under the trim.

Well this is no help I think, but I recall now because I had a 6 character registration I was able to use a smaller plate, if yours is 7 that may stop you using the smaller plate that is offered. But if yours is 6 then look around as that apparently lets you use a 1950's size plate which is smaller.

Otherwise you'll have to shop around for something or try and blag a supplier into offering smaller than standard characters.

The standard UK plate is, aesthetically in my opinion too big for the car, so it might be worth trying the smaller characters - you'd be jolly unlucky to be pulled. Really can't remember who did mine but they were a mirror silver on black plastic.

Late response but here you go. A couple of photos. The plates are 11 x 8" with silver on black acrylic. I simply drilled holes in the corners to match the holes in the rear panel. Then ran small screws through in each corner. The screws are in the silver border so by using silver screw heads they aren't noticeable till close up.

Then I got some acrylic small bore tube and cut it to length with a chamfer to fit nicely against the countours of the body. It worked well because the white of the acrylic blended in nicely. You might want to paint them body colour if your car is not white.

The steel screws then go through the plate, through the tubes which act as spacers and are retained by nut & washer inside boot.

It's not a concours solution but looks q good until you get within 18".
