Hi, has anyone know a supplier that can make a rear number plate to fit the space for the rear plate. I just feel this would smarten the appearance. Has anyone else tried this?

There are only a few legal sizes.

Problem I solved with the rear plate is it needs to be stuck down at the edges as well as screwed on or it makes a whistling noise. There are backing trim plates for these things to neaten them up.

??? of my number plate? No.

Usual black and yellow screw heads and 3M double sided number plate tape underneath around the edges.

I don't have a surround plate on this car, try Amazon for "number plate trim"

Like I said before, you can only get plates in a couple of legal sizes, its Hobson's choice.

The trim plates were on the old AMG (gone, no photos).
