hi

my E300D (1994 model) has failed its MOT on both number plates.

apparently they now need to be fully black characters and not the carbon fibre effect i have had on there for years.

MOT tester says this is a new law just recently - can anyone confirm and also whetehr it is still valid on a 1994 model? i know there are some regs for cars after 1999 (post code and BS marking) which my plates dont have but because its an older model has never been a problem until this year.

annoyed i may have to get a new set of plates made up for no good reason :(

thanks!

derek
