    Recently decided to go down the route of pressed metal plates for my private reg. Have reinstalled them twice now using the included double sided stickies but after a few days the rear plate always seems to peel up at each end.

    It's fine on the front where the bumper is painted body colour but I believe it's the black plastic portion of the rear fr/ cupra bumper that is not adhering too well...

    Has anyone else had this problem? How did you get around it? Don't particularly fancy drilling the plates as I prefer the clean look.

    Cheers,

    J

    We have the same problem at work sticking rear plates on plastic panels, we just resort to screws, if you're not for this method what about a plate holder?

    Think i'll have to go for a plate holder the yellow on the pressed plates is more of an orange and wouldn't match to well with the yellow screws that attached the standard plate.

    Thanks for the insight

    I've noticed a lot of the cars with milltek exhausts and diffuser have a gloss finish there

    I got the diffuser.

    Triple r composites used to make them but stopped.

    And i resorted to plate holders, but i have Gel embossed plates :)
