I don't know much about these things but there's not much chance of this being someone's initials is it?

£1,500 would be my top price. Let me know if you're interested as I have the folding. Also got some interesting swaps Thumb

Spot on. It's a decent cover number and that's its realistic value. thumbsup

What's a Cover number?

What's the point if your initials aren't UXP?

It is to cover up that you can't afford/don't want to pay for a numberplate with your initials on it.

...but most initials are available for £250?

Why is this one £5000?

What has Zingari (the man of minuscule offers and p/ex's) offered £1500?

No-one has an 'X' as part of their initials, so to 99.9% of the population it's worthless.

Apart from Xavier, who'd be an idiot to pay more than fifty quid.

My intials are MJH. I would also go for AJH or AHF for my son. Find one of those with a single digit + initials for £1500 and you have a sale.

This has got an X in the middle of it.

It's worthless as an initials plate.

I've heard that not having a private plate of this type on a Bentley Continental GT is an automatic MOT fail... Dont know

I'm not into initials personally. Though acronyms wise, if it must mean something:

As luck would have it, there's a chap who I play bowls with whose name is Umberto Xanthippus Posslethwaite - we call him Bert.

He's pretty stupid so you may be in with a chance. I'll ask him.

To be fair, when I lived in Cobham, Surrey, these single-digit-three-letters or better still two-digits-two-letters number plates did appear to be very popular; so there must be a market for these plates. I'm not sure they ever meant anything. I suspect its a bit like quinoa - some things just become inexplicably popular - until the next distraction comes along. Question

Okay I get it.

5UX P.

Is it five grand. Probably. Who knows.

I actually think that a flash car WITHOUT a personal plate nowadays is cooler than one with.

Everyone's got one. Even our local Baker.
