    Why do people here put so much value on a personal plate? In the US they are dirt cheap. And I'd have to say that, regardless of how much cash you have, spending that kind of money on a license plate is absolutely stupid.

    I've got nothing against personal plates - I had one on my A3 (plate up for sale soon I guess), so far my A4 has been more anonymous.

    That's just daft money though. I think people willing to part with that much cash for a registration could probably do to reprioritise! That said though, if Mr/Mrs Singh has 14,657,524,842.23p in the bank, is a good and charitable person and gets the urge for retail therapy then best of luck to them! I guess you sell for what people will pay, so good luck to the seller too I guess!

    Regards,

    Rob

    There is a story in one of the sites that Mr Khan from Khan Design in Bradford has just paid £500k for the plate F 1.

    It sounds completely ridiculous saying : "have bose or a holiday instead"

    Mate. The people who buy these plates have more money than sense anyway.. it's just pocket money.. i'm sure the sound system in their rolls royce is carved out of pure diamond anyway. and they probably have 10 houses in the caribbean.
    It's just a finishing touch.

    Is there anywhere to see how much your number plate is worth

    Was driving past the JCB factory this morning, saw an Aston (unsure which model, it was just huge and flash) with the plate JCB 9 on it.

    2 minutes later was cut up by a white astra van with a similiar JCB number plate, swine!

    A reg plate is worth as much as someone is willing to pay for it, so evaluations are a bit hit and miss.

    AUD 177X and CAR 8L are for sale at the next DVLA auction.

    I think F1 used to be owned by essex county council.
