Wednesday delivery for mine have tried to speed it up by offering to collect but only moved it by 1 day so sticking with the delivery - can’t wait will take me 2 weeks to fit all the accessories 🤪
I tried the same and it would have moved my delivery back two days from Thursday to Saturday. Needless to say I didn’t go with it!

Quick question for the group my company insurers AXA have put a £1,000 excess on the windscreen replacement - this seems excessive anyone else have any experiences/comments? Cheers

Anyone removed the plastic no plate surround yet . I plan to once it arrives ?
Yes I've done mine.

The holders are different from the previous ones you've seen in the videos. The edges don't come off, you just have to bend the bottom section and then snap it out of the clips, then flex the metal plate to remove it. Then you can access the mounting screws as normal.

I've put gel plates on and I can't work out whether they look good or really chavvy, I normally don't do mods. I may end up putting the old ones back on - I'm just not that keen on the green stripe when my car is all black, it stands out too much.

I took the mount off and then used 3M foam tape to stick to the backing plate which I left on - nothing touches the vehicle then.

The front mount is coverered totally by the reg plate, but the back one is slightly larger. Some people have chopped it down to size but I just left it as is as it looks like a neat frame with only a little edge sticking out - maybe better on my black car than say white I suppose. It also helps you get the plate on straight having it there.

Would you be able to share a photo of what you've done?

....although I'm guessing it might get moved to another thread!
