Re: Private Plates...

I have promised myself it is something I willt ry NEVER to change my opinion on it, if i ever decide to buy it, I will try my hardest to make a donation to a needing person/charity. WHen I have enough money to buy one, I will have enough money to give it away. For me, it's not even like putting a body kit on the car which does have an effect that you can see, the plate is barely visible. I would spend the money on performance if I HAD to spend it, 300 odd isn't throw away money for me.

Re: Private Plates...

This was one thread but I didn't say much it seems:

https://www.fiatforum.com/showthread...private+plates

I am sure I spoke my mind fully and properly somewhere.

I saw a C5 today with "C5 THE" and immediately I thought "more money than sense" - although I know I am in the minority in thinking that.

I got back to the car just as she managed to turn around and swing her handbag (with metal studs on it) and hit the car...
I said
"WTF do you think your doing you soppie F***in c**t, you don't even think because your so stuck up your own f***in a**e to think about other people's things. If you f***in scratched that car you gonna pay for it you stupid cow. "

Re: Private Plates...

A privvy plate is only another mod as far as I'm concerned, it's just personalising another of your possessions so why not?

My reg is SAZ ***2 and I've toyed with the idea of my next car being SAZ ***3 or whatever, at the time I bought it, from a distance it looked like SA5 ***2 so folks though it was new, well the dumb people did.

Re: Private Plates...

Not quite in the same league, but loads of london busses have BU5X XXX, one on a regular route from me is BU53 BUS, which I thought was quite cool for a BU5.

EDIT: I really am not that sad as to notice all bus registrations, but when you're stuck in traffic (which you usually are in london) sometimes things catch your eye...

Re: Private Plates...

I could never see the point of personal plates either. I know it is just another appearance mod but they don't improve the appearance of your car they just make you look vain. That said it's up to people what they spend their money on.

My great uncle used to have COE 3, cos he was the third son and surname Coe. There used to be a Merc went round Bournemouth that had the reg CD DISK, which doesn't even make sense, compact disc disk, what.

KoArAnG, as far as parking at Tower Park is concerned, I have parked there, probably over 500 times and never had an incident, outside my house is where the car gets ****ed. I usually park up near the UCI and Pizza Hut in amongst all the other vehicles, but on a Sunday at that time there are usually loads of places you can park that are nowhere near any other cars.

How long is this thing planned for, cos I've gotta get back from London, pick up the kids and see my Dad on that Sunday as well.

Re: Private Plates...

I have no qualms about people buying private plates, just not something I would spend money at now [although maybe in a few years, who knows].

I was offered S4 ASH years back, for 1000 at the time - I refused it then, but haven't checked to see if still available.

Maybe I should look out for D3 MON?

Re: Private Plates...

In some cases Irish plates would be personalised in England, like GAZ.
