    Looking good !

    Got mine on the week before the new 13 plates came out.... Not that i'm a snob that wants every one to see my new car or anything :ninja:

    Cant beat matching plates !! We have three the same and its caused confusion to many people.... So much so ive had to stand and argue that i havent got a new car its just another simular plate !

    I noticed that these are Northern Ireland plates. Without asking you what you paid for the actuals numbers themselves, how much did it cost in transfer fees each? Reason I'm asking is that living in Northern Ireland, we for some obscure reason have to pay a double fee to transfer a GB number to NI.

    We also like the standard plate for the stealth element. My Mrs has hd the 'same' car for 5 years now, except the reality is she liked the first one so much she bought another in exactly the same colour, no plate change so no one knows. Only the real car spotters notice the subtly different spec. It's a fun way to enjoy cars.

    No worries Steamship, the plates themselves cost £49 each and then the transfer fee was £80 each. So £129 each all in.

    Cheap Irish Plates | Speedy Reg

    The plates i got were cheap as they are current issue and luckily the letters formed something close to my user name.

    If you just want cheap non dating plates they are just the job, good hunting!

    Cheers. Unfortunately the plates I would like are GB plates costing £490. To get them on a NI registered car, I have to pay a double transfer rate of £160, and then have VAT on top. So, all in, I'm looking at £780, half the cost of my car, and then another £30 for a decent set of pressed plates.
