    Cherished numberplate

    Stopped off to fill up with fuel yesterday and spotted the ideal private plate for my car. Bearing in mind that the vehicle that it was on was 4x4 Merc. I asked the old gentleman how much for the plate in the off chance it was gonna be cheap.........he just laughed and then saw why I was interested after viewing my car.

    The plate in question was........... ' S3 '

    I cringe to think how much it would cost bearing in mind that a colleague paid a 6 figure sum for..... ' X1 '.

    The only problem is you would have to own an S3 for the rest of your life lol

    Slightly off topic, I saw an RS6 Avant advert the other day and its reg was YE51CAN spaced to say YE5 1 CAN !! How cool is that for a standard plate?!

    Don't see the point of private plates myself. Collosal waste of money and a nice scam perpetuated by the DVLA

    I have a private plate, and you are correct they are a waste of money but I've had mine that long i just transfer it on to new cars as it's been with me a while.

    I wouldn't buy now though, i have spent more in transfer fees since i have had than what the actual plate costed.

    I got mine as a 21st pressie from my late grandparents. They'd left money with my parents and seeing as both grandfathers were very keen on cars (1 being the MD of a dealership in Cirencester) it seemed quite fitting to have a plate rather than a watch, as it will appear on each car I have. It relates to the month, year & my initials.

    I think if they have some meaning then great, but the ones that are blatantly just random to hide the age of the vehicle are a bit rubbish.

    Nope.........he paid well over 100k for X1 and was put on a 3dr Audi A3 the last time I saw him at last years Golf Open. He's got his own golfing company so can more than afford it. Complete waste IMHO but its his decision in the end.
