Does anyone know how to swap the number plate on an e-golf? I mean physically, I know how to apply to DVLA.

When I look at the plate (front and back) there is a plastic frame around it which is probably easily opened up, but I don't want to break it trying to prise it off. No doubt I could pay VW part of an arm or leg to do it, but hopefully it's easy to buy cheap plates and DIY.

Usually there are 2 screws holding it all on. If it’s some sort of frame they just unclip and you can swap. If I were you I would get rid of the frame and just stick the new ones on.

Careful! Some plate surrounds have a locking key and you cannot remove them without it unless you destroy them.

Yes that 's the sort of thing that bothers me. It's a new car so I don't want to spoil it.

Did the"key" not come with the car? They are normally cheap plastic things that look like a screwdriver.
