    Found a nice Reg No. today...just need Pounds15k

    Just messing with NewReg today and came across this reg for the pending 997.


    Re: Found a nice Reg No. today...just need Pounds15k

    My initials are RESB. What do you think of "R3SB X" for Pounds240.00 ! lol

    Re: Found a nice Reg No. today...just need Pounds15k

    I am confused. Does that reg no really cost you Pounds15K???

    If so, I declare immediately my own canton and start pressing licence plates...

    Re: Found a nice Reg No. today...just need Pounds15k

    Matt, don't be confused, it' true. I noticed on the DVLA website it was origianlly sold in 1999 I think for Pounds8k.

    The worrying thing about it is my wife whose initials are AB has found "911 AB".

    Re: Found a nice Reg No. today...just need Pounds15k

    Oh well, now that I think about it, there are some cantons here in Switzerland which auction their free low number plates from time und time (we don't have any customization, just numbers). For specific numbers, the prices go beyond CHF 10K occasionally too.

    I guess they're counting on being able to sell that to some "Rich B." who drives a 911.

    OOOPS! Didn't I just draw some kid's attention to his use of questionable language in another thread?

    Re: Found a nice Reg No. today...just need Pounds15k

    Funny thing is there is "R1CH T", for Pounds35k ish...lol

    Hmmm, the "T" wouldn't necessarily leave a lot to the imagination.

    Re: Found a nice Reg No. today...just need Pounds15k

    This is just shocking to us Americans. We have no concept of selling license plate numbers.

    Ask some fellows from Hongkong - they are notorious for paying insane $$$ for those lucky numbers like 777 or similar.

    BTW: just managed to reserve a nice plate for my Boxster S:
    "MY 987" (of course the prefix here in Germany is always determined by the city you're registered, for example in Stuttgart it would be S-MY 987).

    Reservation costs: 12 Euro (in words: twelve Euro)

    Re: Found a nice Reg No. today...just need Pounds15k

    ResB what site did you use for that search? I need a JJ plate but for pennies not thousands. Something like 'JJ 1' would be ok

    Re: Found a nice Reg No. today...just need Pounds15k

    K1NGS went for Pounds239,000 at a Driver And Vehicle Licensing Agency auction.

    P1LOT made Pounds66,000 on the hammer. MUS1C Pounds65,000. S1NGH Pounds86000. 1A Pounds160,000. 1J Pounds60,000.

    There's a pretty blonde driving a VW Bettle near where I live with the plate M1JFF which always raises a smile.

    The world record is something like HK$13million (>US$1M).
