Stainless Steel Number Plate Surround

The perfect finish for the rear of your MX-5, fix the universal plate holder to your car and clip in the number plate and fit the stainless finisher, easy! UK oblong plate only.

Was bought this as a birthday gift and like the reviews say it has burrs that need worked but its stainless so fit and forget, no corrosion worries and it looks great on.

Fast delivery as always from MX5 Parts. I'd have given this 5 stars had the plate been exactly the same as the photo showing it wider at the bottom than the top. That said, it's good quality and easy to fit. I can't complain about razor sharp edges as some reviewers mention. Maybe the manufacturer listened and started smoothing them off. Polished stainless steel certainly beats my old chrome washed plastic plate which cost almost as much and looked awful after 2 years.

Be careful! Lots of burs! First thing I done was press on the edge whilst unpacking. Deep cut to the finger.Besides the razor edges; looks nice...

Purchased this item to brighten up the rear end. I was disapointed with the quality and finish of the item. The stainless steel is quite thin and the edges are guillotine cut which leaves razor sharp edges both on the inside and outside edges, which I had to sand with fine wet & dry paper so as not to cut myself. The backing plate is universal with many holes, none of which match the Mazda hole centres so I had to drill through with new holes. Also this backing plate is 3mm too short to accept a UK plate so again I had to remove 1.5mm from each 'short' edge of my number plate. I then used the existing holes in the number plate to hold the whole assembly to the car. Once fitted it looks fine.

.....also it should be pointed out that the item isn't as illustrated on the website ie narrower at the top than the bottom. It's the same all round. This could matter to some.

Nice product - tidies things up at the back nicely if youre into chrome n stuff.However, I had to remove mine again shortly afterward as the new numberplate without the screw holes was printed wrong and I hadn't noticed. All I'll say is be very careful if ever you have to do this as the underside edges are very sharp. I wouldn't want you waiting in a & e for 3 1/2 hours to get your thumb stitched!!

I ordered the stainless steel version of this because it appeared to be more substantial than the chromed version. It arrived today and I fitted it in minutes. It looks fantastic. I did go out and buy another new number plate because the existing one had screw holes in it and with this surround and holder you can screw the holder directly to the body of the car and insert the number plate. So rather than have a couple of holes in the number plate, I bought a new one and it looks great.Now I wish that there was a stainless steel plinth for the front number plate!!!!!

I bought this to replace the chrome covered plastic one I bought earlier which was a complete waste of money, as it looked tarnished and started flaking off after less than 3 months. This stainless steel version is far better. I just wish I bought this one in the first place and its only £3.00 more than the plastic chrome one.

Hi, purchased this for my mk 2 1998. Be aware that you may have drill new holes, in order to line up the black backing plate for these. This is not a problem. However, after fitting the back plate, and purchasing a new standard plate from Halfords, i could not get the registration plate to fit snuggly. Tryed lots if different ways to get in in but it appears the reg plate was slightly too big for the black backing plate. Having said this i managed to fit it, and it looks really good. The right hand side of the plate was slightly "bowed" which resulted in the top right hand clip of the Stainless Steel surround not being attached. This does not seem to be a problem, as the surround has another 5 clips and the plate has not moved atall since fitting. It also does not afftect the way the plate looks on the car. Overall happy with the purchase, but would have preferred a better fit.

Delivery Information - MX5 Parts

We understand that its really important for you to receive your goods in a timely fashion and for a competitive price. To ensure that we can deliver this we have developed a strategic partnership with both the Royal Mail and our courier partner, Think Worldwide.

At the present time, we only offer one delivery option ‘our carrier’. We will dispatch your goods with the most suitable carrier, for main land UK deliveries this is normally Royal Mail 1st class for packages weighing under 1.5kg and Think Worldwide for those that are over.

Our delivery charges are based on the weight of the consignment and the destination address. For UK mainland deliveries they start at £1.97 for a package weighing under 300g and rise to a MAXIMUM of £9.95 for a package weighing 1.5kg or over (EXCEPT very large bulky items that have an additional shipping surcharge added). The exact delivery cost will be clearly displayed at checkout.

Delivery times are estimated at 1-3 working days by Royal Mail, and 1-2 working days by Think Worldwide for mainland UK addresses. If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday, we will dispatch the same day. If you order after 3pm, we will try to dispatch the same day, but if we cant it will be the next working day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be dispatched Monday. Items dispatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be dispatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t dispatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised dispatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note, shipping times are an estimate, and can not be guaranteed. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

We can (but we don’t like to) ask the courier to leave your parcel without a signature. If we do this, it will be YOUR responsibility if the parcel is lost or damaged. If you want it left, you need to give us your express instructions in the ‘additional information’ box at the end of the checkout process. It would be helpful if you could also indicate exactly where the package should be left.

Please remember, even with Royal Mail deliveries, that any items which are too large to fit through your letter box will need someone to be available to receive the delivery.

Our Guarantee - MX5 Parts

We guarantee “always fair prices”

MX5parts maintains an everyday savings pricing policy. We watch other retailers closely and maintain competitive pricing. The internet being the beast it is means that any Tom, Dick or Henrietta can set up a website in their back room and charge bargain basement/off the back of a lorry (guv) prices. Often they will have no stock, no returns policy, questionable security, no guarantees and of course poor customer service. MX5parts strives to be open and honest, so we will never inflate our prices to set up an artificial ‘sale’ (a common – and illegal – retail practice).

It is inevitable in an open market like the internet that there will be some individuals selling some items cheaper than we do, and some selling them for more than we do, just as in the high street. We take great pride in offering a fast, efficient, friendly and secure shopping experience, with great products at fair prices. We encourage our customers to shop around, but are very pleased to welcome them back again and again.

We guarantee to despatch your order when we say we will

If you order before 3pm, Monday to Friday and we have your items in stock , we’ll despatch the same day . If you order after 3pm, we’ll still try to despatch that day but, if we can’t, we’ll despatch the following day. Items ordered after 3pm Friday or over a weekend will be despatched Monday. Items despatched on Friday are for delivery the following week. Items ordered over a Bank Holiday will be despatched the next working day. MX5parts is constantly updated to keep pace with changes in our stock but demand is high and we occasionally run out of popular items. If we have run out of stock and can’t despatch your order the next working day, we’ll email or phone you with a revised despatch date. You can then either accept the revised dispatch date or cancel the order, as you wish. Please note that during special offer periods, dispatch of your order may be delayed slightly due to high a volume of orders.

We guarantee to replace any goods which aren’t suitable

We guarantee to accept back any goods that you do not want, are not suitable, have changed your mind about, infact, for ANY reason, provided the goods reach us within 30 days of dispatch from us, in their original condition and packaging. Please tell us why you are returning the items, just for our records. The original purchase price of the goods will be refunded on to the card that was used for their purchase.

This is your right under UK law and, if we do anything else, it’s illegal!

(Please note: This doesn’t apply however if you have chosen to pay via PayPal. Due to the way PayPal works, you are effectively sending the money to us rather than us asking for it so in this instance we will have received payment at the time the order was placed and not when it is ready for dispatch).

We guarantee that we won’t pass your email details on to anyone else

Absolutely not. All your details are treated as strictly confidential. We’re internet users, too, and we know how annoying unsolicited email can be. We wouldn’t risk annoying you by being the cause of it.
