European sytle plates

Does anyone know of a place that makes a european style plates that replicates your true plate? I've seen them on cars, but I don't know where to find them.

^^^^
Looks like a Dutch or UK plate to me(yellow plates at the rear)

Why didn't you choose white like the German plates? You already have the 'D' in the blue EU 'flag'...

Most US plates are ugly. With their tacky images, pathetic slogans, and obnoxious colors.

That's what I loved about living in Michigan. only needed a rear plate, and they had the simple blue (then the white) one. Now I'm in Arizona and the plates are ugly and covered in cactus.

Man, I must be getting old. I see no sense what so ever in doing this. You are just asking to get pulled over. Not to mention the poser factor.

The US plates are UGLY and look horrible on the bimmers. I have two types of plates the custome one in the picture and a traditional German one... Cop's hate either one but who cares nothing a good family lawyer can't resolve, LOL...
