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.

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

We bought our personalised plate for the dog! Interestingly, we had a conversation with the owner of a historic property who was very interested in buying our plate, because it was much better than his existing one! The dog said no. 😂

we also have odd looks when we park together in the SUPERMARKET car park.

why would you take 2 cars to the supermarket?, and parking them together must be quite difficult?.

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

Michelle works there.

Colleague parking is usually as far away from the door as possible, so plenty spaces when I go remind her she has a husband.🤭

 We have one for each car, it's our initials and surname letter, so we have AB02CDE & AB03CDE (not those actual letters) they look quite good when parked on the same pitch.

Interestingly we found the old plate that was just given when we bought the car was worth £500 , so we took that off and kept it (in certificate)
