    Well I run a private plate on the A3 that was also on my Golf IV, a pressent from the Mrs.

    In fact the A3 has worn private plates for most of it's life as it had MarriedBlondes one on it before mine, with a short period of an 05 plate whilst the transfers were going through, and yes I've kept those plates for when I sell it.

    I have one, was a good purchase as it removes the age from the car.

    Rick Glover or whatever his name is can have his top specced car and nice home stereo and his holiday, but someone else could go and buy exactly the same car, wait 2months and buy the newer better home stereo and go on the same holiday but fly 1st class and drink nothing but champagne the whole holiday. Only you can own your personal plate so thats fare more exclusive and not a bad way to spend (and possibly invest) some spare pocket change.

    Well, I purchased my PP when I was self employed systems engineering contractor (prior to Gordon Browns IR35 stealth tax) and in a moment of sheer vanity.....it was G1 JBC (my initials are JBC) and I was born in 1961 so when I owned my BMW the unmodified bolt location allowed me to nearly convert the G to a 6 this 61 JBC....this was great until I was pulled over by plod on the M6 early one quiet sunday morning .....aqnd given a summary bollocking and told to fix it....sticks in the throat when you see how some people modify their plates.....

    ANyways...the plate is now on my Audi A4 Avant 2. 5TDi Quattro Sport and its OK....

    A positive is that I only paid £750 for the plate (special offer) and its been recently valued at £1500.....

    The negative is that my ex girlfriends can tell who owns the car....thankfully its been spared any vandalism....

    cant understand car related plates (S3, TT etc etc) but, I've had my plate on 3 of my last cars, it reads my name surname if you substitute the "4" for an "A" LOL

    I've wasted more money or far less pointless things like alchohol, drugs, fines, takeaways etc atleast I get to take this from car to car and it's personal to me, I couldn't give a monkeys what other people thought about it

    Mine reads ASS.

    If this was permanent, I reckon paying for personalised plates might be worth it.

    If it says ASS on the back what is the plate on the front?
    Great number, far better than a PP!!:tapedshut:

    I've just bought one. I keep spending money on mods which i'm never gonna get a return on. So i thought i'd get a plate which i can keep forever and put on any car.
