Number plates

Just wondered how the number plates will be attached to the new car by the dealer. Are there pre drilled and tapped holes or do they drill ( hope not). I think Ill ask them to be stuck on rather than drilled.

They drilled holes in mine (BMW Berry). Looks a bit shit, but it's hidden under the plate so... you know. I taped over the holes and got some doubled sided tape for mine

Went in and asked for them to be stuck. I saw him write it on the order folder but Iíll remind him when I go to see it on arrival.

They do but it's becoming illegal for cities to have them. The state is issuing fines to city government to stop illegal uses of speed cameras and red light cameras. Also in July of 2020, my state is banning front license plate.

Without going off topic for too long, how is speeding controlled?

Where do you guys get your number plates from? I have look at a couple of companies but I have heard that a lot of them are a little dodgy? Has anyone ever used https://www.number1plates.com ?
