I need an F1 license plate frame...help...

The title says it all. I am in search for a license plate frame for my 1er that is just the F1 logo. Something very similar to what the ALMS has:



If anyone has any information on where I can grab something like this, I sure would appreciate it.

Please before you go telling me to perform a google search, understand that I have been searching high and low for this item for many years. I can not find a vendor that makes these. Speedgear has nothing, the F1 store has nothing, Ebay has nothing....

Help me Obi-wan, you're my only hope

F1 Administration or whatever they're called doesn't have any official merchandise of its own, i think. At least they didn't a few years back.

Ok, the more I look into this, the more I come to find out that F! management has no clue about marketing prodcuts to us folks in the States. you can get pretty much any NASCAR driver on a beach towel or a toilet seat, yet finding F1 merchandise is tougher than scoring alcohol in Utah after 10pm.

So it is looking like my only option will be to get a custom plate frame made. Looking like the custom laser etched frame place I found is my best bet.

Wish me luck...

Finding a frame with the official F1 logo is going to be tough.

I just did a quick Google search for custom license plate frames, and the first site allows you to get a plain frame with "F1" or "Formula 1" engraved on it.
