    Can anyone give me a link for a holder that allows for the severe angle point at the front of an E Class bumper, or an adapter?


    Bought some fancy enclosures a while ago, rear is fine but the front keeps 'worming' off the centre of the plate due to the severe 'camber' on the bumper! :mad:

    Drive faster - more air pressure.

    TBH John it's the fast driving that causes it!

    There the same as the ones you were asking about last week, assuming you have a pair?

    It sits OK but as soon as you've been over 80 odd then the top centre 40% of the holder pushes up over the plate exposing the edge and looks toss.

    The local car wash has the same effect when using the Jet wash.

    The old plate had a sort of contoured backing plate which left the number plate almost flat rather than bent double!
