    Hi all,

    Is there such a thing as a shorter front number plate holder for the W204 coupe? Standard one being circa 20" long. Looking for one about 16" to accommodate a shortened plate.

    Anybody know where I could get one?

    Cheers

    I looked for one to go on my car but could not find one for sale. eBay have them at 460mm long (18 inches)' just search for short number plate holder.
    In the end I went without a holder and stuck mine on the rear covering the mounting holes.

    I cut one down to use with a little cutting disc on a Dremel. Also cut the plate down to fit it, chamfering all the edges, put it all together and it looked reasonable.

    Until I put it on the car. It just looked awful and I think the way to go it either standard or plate only without holder.
