I figure you'd put it on the front of your car, so people can read it in their rearview mirror that you're coming from behind

First of all, styles 2-4 are GERMAN license plates, not EURO plates, style #1 is some fantasy creation

Style 2 is a temporary plate (valid to the date stamped in the yellow field)
Style 3 is a export license plate (you have to export the car from Germany until the date stamped in the red field)
Style 4 is a regular german license plate for Oldtimers (H at the end -> Historic)

...and all of those plates contain errors. There are no dashes on German plates and the state seals don't match the county code..

If you want to rock a German license plate, get an authentic German plate...

Thanks for the feedback all. To clarify, I wouldn't be rocking this on a daily basis. It's something I'd use only for photoshoots, meets (eg AMVIV), or other special occasions. I just HATE the look of the US plate on my MINI, and I would rather not have it on during those kinds of events.

For the ones with the expiration dates, I'd put 09/10/02 as the date, as that was the completion date for my MINI when it was built.

Darcy - The plates in the photos are just for show. I wouldn't use any of those letter/ number combinations anyways, so the glaring mistakes aren't my doing! And yes, they are German plates. I'll correct my original post.

See I agree with that, but the early cooper bumper has that space for one, if you don't use it, you have to use that big nasty bracket. So I installed a europlate and drilled holes into the frame to then mount my US plate. Looks clean.

Dylan, just get any europlate, not a custom one.

I agree, random numbers and letters IMO I don't like euro plates with catchy phrases.

Darcy (and others who like "real" German plates), what about "SD MN 168" or "US MN 168" standing for either "San Diego MINI 168" or "United States MINI 168" on a standard German plate? Those follow the proper order of letters and spacing for a German plate, right?

Like one of these:
