Don't use those sticky pads - especially from halfords with their "We'll fit it" service. I did, plate fell off twice and came loose a 3rd.
As long as the bodywork under the plate is clean, then the sticky pads (from Halfords or wherever) should stick the plate to the car with no problems!!
My plates were supplied with sticky pads when I bought them (from Fancy Plates). The front plate has been stuck on with these pads for the last 4 and a bit years, whereas the rear, after having a new bumper has been stuck on with Halfords pads for about 3 years now.
Looks nicer without screws too
