I heard back from MMC this morning and the short answer is that they are waiting an official reply regarding the front number plate and its fitment in the UK. As soon as I hear further on this issue, I'll post accordingly.
As it's my intention to run without a front number plate, I did ask if the Works could get some Burt (timing) struts made up to act as bumpers on my car. Matt is drawing up a couple of suggestions and once I see them I'll let you know. Apparently, MMC like the idea as they are thinking of offering them as an optional extra in the future.
