Yikes! A lot for seven digits and a fudge. Maybe worth 10k without the 'BO'

Yep....a Mars bar is considerably cheaper and more tasty (but looks a bit rubbish on the back of your car)

Thanks for asking, but no, not yet .... apparently the DVLA are still struggling to clear their backlog ... I'm hoping it'll be sorted for next week, when I get home.

At this rate it'll be more of a Christmas present than a birthday treat.

Hmm, they took just over 3 weeks to get mine sorted - but as I said before, I was naughty. I think because these cars are so personal, a PP is approaching essential. It'll be worth the wait!

For those of us in the colonies, perhaps one of you Brits can educate us as to why a license plate might cost $10,000+. Here they are roughly $100/ year and are included with the registration. I'm not aware of the concept of actually owning a plate.

Oh boy - it's complicated! In short, they are a tradable commodity, and the fewer numbers/letters, the more valuable they are. When you find one you like, you can keep it for life and transfer it to your succession of vehicles, or sell it to someone who wants it more than you do - and start again. Over the years the govt. have tightened the regulations, so that you can't screw with the fonts and spacing to make the message more clear. For instance, years ago, I had 69 ORGY, which was actually G90 RGY, but tidied up by spacing and the use of a black screw in the 'G'. I personally never got tugged by the cops, but they are getting far more picky, what with all the cameras for vehicle recognition, so I sold it a few years ago while someone, was prepared to take a chance.

I've had a PP for several years and now have one on both my vehicles. We had a DVLA office just up the road and in the past it has been dead easy to swap and change my PP's between vehicles, but now they have closed the local office and centralised the service so of-course, it is now a total shambles and seems to take several weeks for them to process any requests, despite the high costs involved!

PILOT has apparently 'disappeared' or at least the owner can't be traced.

It was sold for about 50k more than 10 years ago

LOL - UK PP's are bad, but one sold in Dubai a couple years back at well over $14m to Saeed Abdul Ghafour Khouri.

UK record was - maybe still is - "F1", which sold for a bit under 450k, and was retained by it's current owner despite a 6m offer.

Hey, that's great news!

Maybe it's just me, but my ride ain't my ride until it's got my familiar tag on it. The one I use I've had for over 25 years, so I'm quite attached, despite that it's nothing special.

Here we can get "vanity" plates - plates with whatever characters you want. They cost extra to get and you have to pay extra each year that you have them. They are scrutinized by some puritanical bureaucrat before issue so as not to be offensive or pornographic. That said I saw a motorcycle tag this year that was F AWF. Not sure how that slipped through.

Davie -

would it not be more personal to have your initials then 55AMG - I reckon that would be around 1900 a significant saving
