Why German plates on some Irish cars?

Why do some cars have German car tax on their plates as well as having Irish car tax disks at the same time?

Hi Brian,

Look closer and you’ll probably see that these are most likely Irish number plates that have been printed in the style of German plates. Some owners of German-built cars do this as an aesthetic thing. It’s totally illegal by the way. “Using vehicle in a public place that has been modified or altered such that authorisation plate is inaccurate” gets you three penalty points.
