    Well you're getting an S3 so S3 ... is the norm. There's quite a few of those about.

    S3 DJO is for sale on ebay right now. It's got a Welsh flag on though...bleurgh!

    My first name is Leon and the plate L3ONS is for sale too. Not interested though to be honest.

    My dad has a passat and his plate is VW## PAS. That's pretty cool.

    I know a bloke who won £250k on the lottery (not that he needed the money) and bought '1P' for his Merc (his name is 'Pang')
    £70K (or so he claims,but it seems feasible)
    Cha-ching !

    MS1 and K1NG were sold for £250,000 and were the most expensive plates for sale on the UK market, these have been exceeded now by a plate for sale at £350,000 but cant find any details of it!

    I think it was K1NGS rather than K1NG.

    M1 was sold in 2006 for £330,000.

    The dearest in Northern Ireland was BIG 1 for over £100,000. The same dude also bought BIG 2 and BIG 3 for 15000 and 14500 respectively.

    He has BIG 1 on a Dodge RAM pickup.

    There was also a story doing the rounds about a year ago that Roman Abramovich bought VIP 1 for 285000, but that appears to have been untrue. It had been inroduced by the Irish Government in 1984 to commemorate the Pope's visit to Ireland.

    I would like to think, even if I had the money, I wouldn't ever buy a plate for that much!

    At the nurburgring we saw this:

    As most of you will have already gussed I have H5 DJR on my A3 and my wife has H5 JHR on her Polo. I only have the single christian name so the DJR is for Dave and Jenny Robinson. My Honda 125cc scooter has H5 DRX.

    Jenny took her Polo in for a service yesterday and when we collected it and she followed me home I saw a couple of people do a double take at the number plates, not really sure if the seen the same number on two different cars following each other!

    Someone near me presumably bought the car (or the plate) as a present for his wife Sue. The plate is XT 05 UEX but has had the spaces realigned to read:
    X T0 5UE X
    which is a bit cutesy but still clever.

    Never understood car-specific plates.
    Too restrictive.
    I know of a blokes who owns CL10.
    Looked good on his Williams Clio,but looks **** on his BMW now.
    I also know a bloke who bought an 'S40' plate,based on him being loyal to Volvo.
    Looked good on his S40 volvos,but looks **** on his Toyota.
    S'pose you can sell them like,but still.
    Folk get used to seeing 'your' plate,so I'd never buy a car specific one.
    My one is B4LFO,coz my surname is Balfour.
    It's illegally spaced on the front,legal on the back.
    I intend to go illegal back and front on my next car.
    Take my chances.

    I agree. They are supposed to be 'personal' plates after all. Far better to have a plate relevant to you rather than the car.

    One of the best plates I've seen was TAX 5 on a bright red Porsche 911 belonging to an accountant.

    I also seen PEN1S, also on a Porsche 911.

    Whist on holiday in Germany I say a Mercedes with the the number S:EX69 in it's home town of Stuttgart. Also in Germany all the cars registered in Cochem have plates begininning COC:
