i wouldnt spend silly amounts of money as I've previously said. Like over 1k-2k like the OP is prepared to. if a cheeky LIL with something else random came up for the right price I'd be very tempted and a little purchase may be in order for the swift :cool: (or the soon to be different car :cool:)

If it works then definatly yes.

All 3 cars in my household have them, mine, brothers and parents. You wouldnt nessisarily know who they were without knowing the name, but when you know the full name it says it very well in a srt f lk ths wy. Mine and brothers both have the same last 3 letters - most of our surname, so people easily put 2 and 2 together.

:rolleyes: You can transfer plates to other cars so it's not going to put anyone off. If the plate was permanently assigned to one car then people wouldn't be able to sell them on.

I was given a car and a private number plate for Christmas two years ago by my parents.
The car was in the region of £500-£600 (can't exactly remember) and I wasn't told if I wanted to know how much the plate was I'd have to look at similar ones online because they wouldn't tell me.
The plate is DAZ followed by 4 numbers of no significence and having looked at the same plate with different numbers online they were all around £1400.

I can tell you now I'd much rather have had a £2000 car with normal plates. I think it looks tacky and stupid and is a waste of money, and I didn't even pay for it!

When I get round to getting rid of the car I I'm going to revert it to it's original plates (or to different ones, not sure how it works tbh) and sell the plates seperately. Realistically it's probably working out for the best as I've had a car I could have trashed without it being a problem and now I've got 3/4 times the car's value in money when I sell it.

There's someone down my road who's got a Jag with 'WWW 1' as the license plate. Must've cost him an absolute fortune.
WWW 1 is not registered to / on a Jaguar. It's registered to a

Make
PORSCHE
Year of manufacture

The person upgraded lol?

And back on topic... Private plates ftw ^^
They appreciate rather than depreciate.. and its like a final touch to a car.. depending on what car you have obviously.. Also it hides the age of the car you drive... For example.. if you drive a VW Golf Mk4 2001 (W reg)... and you had a private number plate on it.. people are not going to know if its a 2002 / 2000.. well they can if they know there stuff... but you get my drift.

My plate was £1100.

I've got one, but it's subtley Private as it's in the style of XY55 XYZ - just with my initials as the first 2 letters and my last name as the last three - so that was good

Some plates are cool if they actually means something, like your name, or nickname...but when you see something like P1mp you just think - what a ****.

I thought it might be but a bit hard to tell as it's so small. I love those cars.

Yay, i want a private plate on my car, keeps the car looking newer. The age is hard to tell.

Probably somethng along the lines of "V8 GRV" (Graham Harvey (RV)). I think last time i looked it was £250 all in, so umm.
