    ... a fortunate number plate?

    Getting a private number plate is extremely expensive. But the truth is that a lot of number plates out there suit people already.

    I'm just wondering if anybody has ever lucked out and ended up with a car that already had a registration which was suited to them without having to shell out for a private one.

    Mine suits me fine, it came with the car, it fulfills the legal requirement to have one, thus I guess I got lucky.

    Personally I think these so called "private plates" are the hight of decadence.

    I've got far better things to spend money on than a number plate which costs a MINIMUM of £250 to put on a car. Especially when you don't actually own the number plate once you've shelled out for it!

    The car my parents had when I was very young (Ford Orion, G Reg :cool: ) had a plate ending in "WPT" (or maybe WPO ), I thought this was excellent because I used to love playing Wipeout on the Playstation at the time, and thought they had chosen it for this reason.

    My current BGT has the registration number XWA 10T

    No prizes for guessing how that is usually interpreted

    bit off topic! but the end of my postcode is 4JG and i thought it was made from the number of people in your family then the first letter of your mum's name and then the first letter of your dad's! but then my little brother was born and it didn't change :confused:

    Given that plate would never have been issued in this country as the format is incorrect...
    You're talking out of your arse.

    I've seen a car with the numberplate "HOT SEX" drive around a few times where I live. Except it has various numbers instead of letters.

    But I also have seen the same car (same driver) with a regular plate on it, so maybe it's a joke or a dare or something as I can't imagine it's legal!

    The end letters of my boyfriend's numberplate say "YAY" which I think is really cute

    Cool story bro. Only that that number plate is of the incorrect formate...bloody noobs that think they can mix some random numbers and letters in any order and make a number plate...there are formats you know!
