New car, but how do I put L plates on it?

Hi,

I've just taken delivery of a new Ford Fiesta, but I have a problem. The magnetic plates I used on my last car will not stay on the rear of the car. The only flat-ish areas are the plastic bumper. One option is to get some adhesive backed L plates to be permanently fixed to the back, although that is not ideal. Any solutions? Any suppliers?

I haven't used a roof-top box for years because of concerns about fuel economy, but this is a short term solution.

Re: New car, but how do I put L plates on it?

I have seen L plates with Velcro strips that stick on the car and the plates can be removed but the Velcro strips remain.

Never used them so can't say how good or bad.

Hi Phil

A few years ago one of the motoring comics (Auto Express?) did some tests on fuel consumption, trying all the things the experts tell us not to do - roof-racks and boxes, open windows, etc.

Their conclusion was that most (including roof-boxes) made no noticeable difference except at motorway speeds.

Halfords do a set where you peel the plate from the paper and stick it on the car.

Important: Keep the paper!

When you are finished, peel the plate from the car and place it back on the paper.

Costs less than a fiver and I've used the same set on different vehicles for a couple of years.
