    White Rolls Royce with "007" plate
    Black exec car with "3D" plate
    and a Black Range Rover with "L1 BYA" plate (off Edgware Road. Where else? ๐Ÿ™‚

    A car near me has FAA 4RT with minimal spacing between letters.

    Classy!

    A mini I used to pass on my commute when I lived in Glasgow that had M1 NGE. Total nedmobile but used to make me smile!

    ?
    ‘fart’ with an extra A and a 4 in the middle? Even considering that personalised plates are for cockweasels with no sense of taste, that’s particularly sh1t.

    Oh and BTW, cue the ‘cherished plates are for nobs’ vs ‘I can do what I like with my money’ debate followed by:

    What coffee machine
    Which tyres
    FS vs HT
    Cheap kit vs high end
    Why the forum name
    How much do you earn/what do you do
    How to fix <insert type of white goods>
    Etc etc

    Round the corner from me is a big black Range Rover

    SPL1F

    Dunno what the guy does for a living though.

    Used to be a hairdressers convertible near us too with V14GRA always stood out when you saw it.

    A plumber near us has "A11 GAS". On the day the M-reg plates came out, I saw a Micra with "M1 CRA".

    Here we go again….

    On Cheyne Walk, in Old London town, sit these two;

    So bad it’s brilliant. Sadly I believe them to belong to Bernie Ecclestone.

    I often see STW 111 crusing round these parts on a Renault Vel Satis, wouldn’t be one of the STW gang though as I’m miles away.

    Would have looked good on chipps’ pink gay car.

    Stoner, it’s a Vanquish with "2 BE" and a Bentley Arnage Black Label (I think) with "NOT 2B"

    Capn – if that wee sprat Ecclestone wants to make some sort of ironic number-plate based statement about Shakespeare/his own initials THE LEAST he could do would be to have them parked the right way round.

    "Not to be or to be, that is the question"

    Doesn’t work Ecclestone, get a flunky to move them round!

    aha Flash.

    very flair.

    There’s a real estate traders in NW london with number plates "B1 DHI", "B1 DLO" and another I forget…

    Opticians car with ‘OO1’.

    Generally people that aren’t satisfied with their lives as they are.

    I knew a guy whose then company car didn’t have a private plate, rather the following unfortunate combination:

    V41 GNA

    (And if you read it quickly, it says….)

    So general opinion is that i sholdn’t get

    N 666 WCA
    N 999 WCA

    as plates for my car then?

    My plate :oops:My name is Jason ๐Ÿ™„

    It all depends on whether you’re a c0ck or not. If you are, and want people to be aware of this fact, go ahead and buy it.

    (And if you read it quickly, it says….)
    erm…VfortyoneGNA? No different from if you read it slowly.

    I thought those two belonged to a well known (and rich) actor. Although that’s just a vague memory from reading it in the paper. A quick google doesn’t reveal anything.

    Do you know for sure they are Bernie’s?

    Charlie Flashfart; I’ve seen them two a few times. Nice gaff, overlooking the river and the houseboat marina. I always thought them to belong to an actor. You say they’re Bernies? Shame.

    Crazy thing is, those two plates (2 BE & NOT 2B) as a pair are probably worth more than the cars they are on!

    I get overtaken on the M40 quite often by a blacked out Range Rover with
    C OO1K on it. there’s a bloke round my way who’s got the tattiest 20 year Beamer 3 series with A13 on it. Apparently it’s been in his family for ages.
