IMHO its not about the weight of the plates as that would be negligable, more about going against the ethos of the Elise.

Are there legal issues with metal plates? It would seem a shame to get stopped and done by our friend in blue for something she doesn't need/want.

I think anything other than bog standard plates look gash on modern cars. Plates are the one thing on all cars that are of the same style* so when you see a car that doesn't have legal plates they stand out really very badly.

*when legal or not on old classic, black silver.

I'm sure these plates are illegal in the uk as they use a slightly different font. I use to have them on my old car, didn't have any problems but I knew people who did get pulled. So just bare that in mind
