Re: Private Plates...

If you want to look really flashy you have to spend some serious $$$$$$. But if you want a personal plate something that means something to you... I see no problem. I plan on keeping my K plate from my current car for my next cars. I think flashy ones look crap unless they spell clever things like PEN15 (this really exists) , but G4ZZA well err no thanks.

Re: Private Plates...

the most expensive plate sold was K1NGS - 250,000. That guy must have been sad and seriously well off to waste that much on a plate

Re: Private Plates...

I want something with BOX at the end.

Like N100 BOX..

I considered buying L900 BOX for my 899cc Cinq, but spent it on the Sporting instead..
And I dont think BOX 1242 would be cheap!!

Re: Private Plates...

We had this discussion about a year ago, I just personally think that if you have nothing better to spend serious money on like that you could give it to charity. For me it's just so shallow and superficial and I fail to understand it. A friend just inheritated 3k and he bought a personalised numberplate, if somebody did that with money I left I would haunt them! It has no benefit, it's of no use to anybody IMO.

I won't go further, I am sure you could find those comments if you did a search.

NB: this is my personal opinion and I am not trying to press it on anybody else.

Personally if i have that sort of money I would have plenty of ways to spend it - usefully.

I do have to agree with you paul, it is a TOTAL waste of money, but probably something i'll buy in the future!!!

Re: Private Plates...

I can't say I have anything against them, well my forum name reflects the one on my integrale, but then the car did come with it.

I did toy with the idea of H15 GTT when I had my Renault as it looks like "HIS GT T urbo" but after it sitting on the DVLA website for about 6months at only 400 some else bought it.

I also liked the look of L11 TBO for the Cinq i.e. it would look like "Lil Turbo" but thought there were better ways to spend my money, & its gone now as well.

I did see a MINI Cooper S with FA51 CAR looked like FAST CAR which I kinda liked as well.

If your getting it as a present, then why not
