    You got to be pushing some serious power to have the balls to have that as your plate otherwise you'd get every Tom dick and Harry up your behind.

    As a matter of interest, what sort of plate are you looking for? And what have you found at DVLA for Ł250?
    I was considering buying a plate with S3 in it, but i am going to part ex my S3 in for an S-Line next year, so have decided to look for something with my name or initials on, so i can keep it.

    i presume that was 170 plus the Ł80 transfer. But that is still a bargain for a plate containing s3 and yes.

    I didnt go for anything s3 related because i dont tend to keep the same car for too long. My name is james hayes so i went for J44 HYS

    My best mate is called James Heelas, and he has H33LAS on his A3. He paid Ł1000 for it plus the transfer duties.

    I got SIII KRL, got it before i even got my s3 coz she knew i wanted one. plus i prefered the 111 instead of 3, does look pretty smart. she did want to get me K4RLS, but that was 22 GRAND! can you believe that.
    i suppose it could also say sick, SIIIK RL.
    i had the option of S3O MEN, obv saying S3 OMEN, which i thought was awesome but i opted against it incase i was bollocked for the spacing.

    that one in the link is cool, wellys is pretty good too.

    what a waste, that annoys me seeing things like that. like a metro with F1 or something silly like that. theres a few wasted plates round me. tend to be oldies that have owned the car for 30yrs, still think its high class and blow 10grand on a number plate.

    I may regret asking this, but how are you lot getting private plates bought for you by your girlfriends? I normally end up with beer and ridiculous socks as presents from the wife. Not fair! Now I just buy stuff and tell her what she's bought me. This year for Christmas she's already bought me a set of new car mats (see the group buy..!). Might try to squeeze in an AndyMac sub too... (yeah right)

    ha, my gf doesnt buy me stuff for my s3 either, just because she thinks its pouring money away and i may not keep it, which is fair enough. Although she did buy me a power kite for my birthday which was a wicked present.

    socks and beer is taking the piss though LOL

    There's a website that allows you to put in your reg and it finds the car and searches for the tyres applicable to that make and model... So you can basically use it to find out where your perfect number plate is...

Luckily, it only scuffed my number plate...

    I'm gonna trade her in if she carries on like that LOL....
