Re: Private Plates...

Reg Transfers are the most expensive though. It pays to shop around.

Re: Private Plates...

Every month I keep getting junk mail from some reg company telling me I can have A* NJV (my initials) Or H* NJV etc. All for the price of 300. 300!!!

IMHO that 300 wouldn't have been worth earning in the first place if I spent it on something like that.

Have also never seen the point in people illegally spacing and putting bolt covers on to make something it isn't. If it reads something it reads something, if it doesn't it doesn't. And also plates that are so obscure people have to give you an explanation on the bottom of the plate (because for some bizarre reason they think you give a toss). e.g. there's one I see regularly in Leeds on an Almera which is 44 DXY, but underneath it says 'Dave & Yvonne', it's like wtf

They're probably Chavs though

Re: Private Plates...

EDIT - dave made me look stupid



i never really understood how one company can charge so much for a number plate and another one be cheaper, i thought they owned the individual plates

Re: Private Plates...

i have a friend whoes name is Bjorn and his surname starts with R. For his 21st his parents got him B10 RNR and it was spaced as B10RN R with the 1 made into a J. At least it looked like what it was supposed to read.
