Multi-storey car parks and number plate plinth


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

Apologies if this has already been covered but could only find info relating to exiges or older elises. I am in the market for getting a sport 220 and I will soon be moving to somewhere with underground car parking. This means there is a ramp. Just by eyeballing it, it looks similar to, maybe not quite as steep as a standard multi-storey car park ramp. 
 

My question is has anyone had any issues with the front (number plate) scraping in multi-storey car parks. I know the angle of approach of the cup 250 is 8 degrees. Is the 220 sport roughly the same as the number plate sticks out a fair way forward and low. 
 

I also believe (but I could be wrong) regulations generally state that parking ramps shouldn’t be a greater angle than 6.67 degrees. In theory it should be okay but has anyone had any real world experience.

 

I was also wondering whether anyone has come across a smaller number plate plinth (mount)? The one on the Elise seems very chunky and forces the number plate forward a fair amount.

Many people run the front plate slightly lower, to give "advance warning" of a scrape. I never had issues with ground clearance on the Sport220, it would need to be a fairly steep ramp for issues to occur.
