    "A3" registration...

    I was driving the other day and saw a very standard looking 8P2 A3 with the private plate "A3".
    It looked very weird, mainly because it just said "A3" in the middle of the plate with a massive space on either side.

    It looked like a showroom plate had just been left on it! (which I thought was the case, so I did a bit of internet detective work and the plate A3 is actually registered to an A3.)

    Anybody else seen this car? I saw it in London. I wonder how much this reg cost.

    Someone with more money than sense undoubtedly... Was the Car de-badged perhaps and the owner needed to be reminded what model it was ;-0

    All it had was A3 on full size plates, front and back. That's why I thought they'd accidentally left showroom plates on it and was on a test drive or something.
    Looked odd.

    Bit odd having such an expensive plate on an A3 but tbh it probably belongs to them/their family and they probably just dont want to sell it so put it on their A3 for the time being.

    I remember years ago "A1" went for a quarter of a mil

    Whenever i drive down Chelsea embankment (cheyne walk) there is a driveway with a Aston and a AMG Merc with "2 BE" and "NOT 2 B" next to each other looks pretty sweet.

    Wish i was a millionaire

    I've seen a M3 CSL plate on a M3 CSL on the way out of london once.
    Also seen a NA51 plate on the M25.

    Mate had Porno on his GT3.

    I like some private plates, Like M3 CSL on a M3 or converting R13 MWR to R BMW R and so on. Some I just dont get, Like my private plate, R89 YTU.
