    just google mate....what i would say is that if you find a reg that you want...check the DVLA as i originally went in the exchange and mart, picked the biggest advert.... spoke to someone about reg's and agreed a decent one that i liked.... i checked DVLa before purchase

    DVLA £250inc transfer
    Other firm £1100 plus £80 trans fee.....robbing b***rds

    yep what 1animal1 said, other firms advertise plates that they dont own they just purchase them off DVLA and sell for a huge mark up....

    Is there much of a market for reselling private plates if you don't want them any longer? I don't suppose you can sell them back to the DVLA, so is it just a case of putting them up on ebay and then filling in the forms if you get a buyer?

    Ive just brought my plate from RegTransfers - I believe they buy from the end users, to sell on. BUT, I think it may be worth selling it yourself if you can. RT's offer very little iirc.

    Brought and payed for a month ago, I have the physical plates, just waiting for the paperwork to say "yes, you're allowed to fix them to the car".

    grr.

    thats cos the FTW is probably the main thing people are looking at, the A3 isnt really unique or hard to get id imagine

    Seen an Audi 80 Cabrio thing round Southamton that did had the plate of AUD 180 (Spaced AUD1 80) which looked cool!

    I was gonna buy S 80LLX for a laugh but mine came with an MTM plate

    Someone on here had S3 0RGY which I thought was hillarious!

    Didnt realise they could either, thought it was a VDR and Producer form? Technically the misplacing of digits etc is a Customs and Excise issue as its to do with the evasion of possibly penalties and tax's

    Ive yet to have any trouble with mine, even when I had my LHD Golf with its original German plates I never got hassles

    It comes under the miscilanious (soz, cant spell) offence code and carries anything between 3-6pts and/or a fixed penalty! Don't ask me how the **** that one works!!!

    As per my wheels post Ryan....You're going to need to change your signiture...LOL

    It gets changed periodically anyway dependant on how creative I feel, sure I can come up with something just as funny and/or offensive!
