Off-roaders and tech heads can choose from some stylish new plates to customise their ride, with the latest releases from myPlates.

myPlates has had a carbon-fibre style option for some time, but now they’ve added colour options in red, green and blue carbon-fibre (above), made available for cars only, at this stage. These fill out a ‘tech’ range of custom plates along with mesh grille and brushed metal options, and a chequer steel finish.

For off-roaders, the Wanderlust range may suit – mildly tacky with their tag-lines "Happiness... is a road trip" and "The road is my home" (sadly the slogans are not customisable), but they make a colourful option for getting spattered with red dirt as you head down the track.

Prices vary from a one-off fee or $299 for the tech range and $330 for the Wanderlust series. If you are using your assigned plate number, that's all there is to pay, though if you're choosing your own letters and numbers too, there's an ongoing annual fee for that plate content customisation of $105 per year.

The new designs join a wide raft of colour, texture and patterned plates. including the existing Australiana range (Outback plate pictured).
