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


We have quite a few single digit single letter and two letter single digit on company cars and the gulf in pricing is big for a reason ie they do look awesome on a car to be fair but you are looking at £70k to £150k Ps the great think is you don't get taxed on them as a benefit in kind on your company car Thumb

I think on old cars they look okay, but the on the newer 'new money' cars like Range Rovers they look kind of Wanky.

Nope they look cool on rangys, rollers, fezzers and lambo's. The regs get as many looks as the cars Bandit

But then I can appreciate both classics and wanky new money cars Grin

Some of the new money plonkers give some of the new money drivers who are perfectly okay, a bad name.

I love a plate that makes me smile;

C11 BYE on a Lambo that reads CU BYE is fun.

One of the younger guys in my team is the nephew of Mr Khan of Khan designs or whatever they are called. He of the F1 number plate fame. And a few other choice plates.

OT

I bought a dateless plate by accident - I was looking for a Mk1 Landrover (the only non-wanky LR) but only managed to buy a reg from one instead.

However, a three-letter, three-number plate has an unexpected bonus - since removing the 'G' from the Euro 'GB' symbol on the actual registration plate, a little old lady in Gent receives all of my speeding tickets, thanks to the EU rules on sharing databases.

That would be either 1999 or 2005. You are very young to own a Porsche Floor

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


Don't virtually all cars already come with a plate that doesn't have your initials on it?
