Do you lads have any opinion on the best way to show your numeric plates on your car .. Example, just by itself, or do you think they present better in a case/holder?

You talking SA numerics? (All states are different). I don't like the white border so I always paint that out or fit a black surround to cover it. I don't like Perspex in front of the plate though because dirt gets behind it. The old style Vic plates are much nicer and have no ugly border.

I previously had a cover on one of my plates - never again - the condensation caused the paint to lift and flake off the plate and I was warned by a cop about it - had to place an order for a replacement plate pronto!
Forgiveness is easier to achieve than permission!

I did mean the SA numerics. I got a 4 digit last auction.

I sort of didn't follow their procedures and just went in 2 days after I paid with BPAY.

So we pay the auction house and then they send the cheques to Service SA. Once they go through all the payments they will contact you. They received my cheque by the 2nd day, so if it's been a few days, I would just say just go in if you don't want to wait for them to contact you.

Thanks, I'm travelling at the moment, will touch base next week if I haven't heard from them.

Anyone going to the Historic Plates auction @ BEA tonight? Some results would be great!

Pretty keen to hear the results for "25" & "99".

I might of gone, but I still don't think I'm welcome :p :D

Going to pop in to service sa to organise my plates, do I need to take a cheque for 10% of the value of the plates, or is this only applicable for the non gov auctions?
