Word of warning.

When part exchanging your car or Motorhome with one, retain it yourself! 

Michelle and myself have matching cars, Mine an A4 Avant Black edition.

Michelle's an A3 red top cabriolet 

Both in white both with very similar personal plates,

Example

A123 ABC and A123 DEC 

Mine the dealer lost when I purchased my car in June. 

World of DVLA pain trying to get it back!

Today's effort failed.

Very disappointed to say the least.

ummm!! very defensive, but the upshot of all that was, it is added expense, added hassel, something i dont need, adds no value, so i wont be getting personalised number plates, thank youlaughing

Just as a slight aside, can anyone explain why so many folk choose "666" as part of a registration. I see loads of them and it seems a bit like tempting fate to me. undecided

Perhaps they think it looks nice without understanding what they've chosen.

There again, maybe they’re devil worshippers.๐Ÿ˜ˆ

Slow forum day?

 

As David, I bought our plates as a present for Michelle. I just added an almost matching one for me, because I think it looks funny on the drive, the cars park side by side, we also have odd looks when we park together in the SUPERMARKET car park.

No names mentioned๐Ÿ‘

 

Plus you dont have to change the caravan plate, re register for the local dump etc, I just blame them when they come up and say the cars the wrong one!

No, I've no problem with folk having them (as long as they comply with the law). Quite interesting to spot them on long journeys. Just always wonder about that choice of number given how many other are available! smile

can anybody explain to me why you need personal plates, never had them, never seen the need to have them and from my perspective they only draw added attention to your vehicle. judging  by all the above who would want all the hassle just to prove what ???

In our case they were bought for us as a present ,and as we have got  older, it is no longer a matter of trying to remember the reg number of our latest vehiclecool

I brought a car that had a personal plate, it meant nothing to me but like the number.  After a year a guy in a hospital car park offered me £1000 for it but I didn’t bite.  Had 5 cars since and each dealer has transferred it for me.  Now on Mrs Ones car
