Best way to fit rear number plate
Purchased a personalised number plate for my wife's Christmas "MINIS 0" - went to fit the plate today and noticed that the car has 2 pre drilled holes on the boot with plastic inserts but they don't line up well with the plate. The old plate just had 2 ugly screws through the plate but don't want to butcher the new plates in the same way.
Any thoughts? 1 idea is to use external double sided tape, or to make some sort of secondary plate that would sit between the car and the proper plate - possibly made out of aluminium or plastic.
The front is fine since could easily screw through the proper holes into the front bumper.
