Real Euro Plate for my Benz - FROM GERMANY!

Hi guys, I bought this for my Benz. It looks really sweet. It's a REAL German Euro Plate, registered in Stuggart! (Where the Benz factory is....) The city seal wasnt removed like normal, just scratched! (By law, seal must be destroyed when a plate is removed from a vehicle over there.)

It also came in this Mercedes Dealership Licencse Plate frame.

I bought it on ebay from: euro-license-plates

He's a great buyer. It took about two and a half weeks to get here. All for about $36 total.

Below are pics.

Some place online allows you to make a custom Euro plate.

German Plates

Very cool. I wonder if it's possible to get a plate from a time before they were even Euro plates, but simply German?

I recieved one from the same seller last week and really love it. It's perfect for my 300D because a regular plate is too small. And I love that the dealer frame is with it, makes it really look nice!

Ya, I looked at those. But, for the same money, I could get a REAL one from Germany!
