Euro style plates?

Has anyone put the Euro style license plates on the vehicles?
I like the look of them and was wondering where I should look at getting them.
Can you go to your local DMV or do you get them online?

Thanks for the help.

There is no such thing as a Euro style plate as the countries in Europe have different formats for car registration plates.

I suspect you mean German style plates!

when will we see a global movement driven by the car companies to modernise and take control of the shape of plates. The need to stand up for their property if they sell it in a certain country should rule .... especial if govt can not take affect

The EU copes with all it's variations, and truly global car makers cope with different bumper/fender mouldings - so what's the problem ?

Bananas ... it all starts with bananas

The EU says a banana is something that the whole other world does not recognise

How bent / straight are your bananas ?

How ..... na... forget it ... to many things the EU controls
