I shall be watching this as it contains several things that I hate.

The first thing I would do if I could afford to get a private plate that said NIGEL, would be to change my name.

I don't know why these people don't just save the money and simply put a sign in their back windscreen saying "I am vain and shallow" instead.

I think a plate personalised to the car is fine on one proviso. The car is in some way special. A lancia delta integrale evo that is a show car and has some plate d3lta imo is ok as the car is a show car.

Sticking 'X5 thg' on an X5 looks shit.

My sister and her husband bought personalised plates for their 2 cars earlier this year. And yes, they are both vain consumer airhead pixie persons.

What gets me though is that the plates they bought don't mean jack sh*t! ...The casual observer would just look at them and think: "what does this cryptic cr*p mean?!", as they're as meaningless as a regular number plate.

Still, it represents £1k well spent to them! :rolleyes:

Have they made even bigger t*ts of themselves by having the name the plate is meant to say, written underneath in a small font?

That always gets me. Puts a smile on my face.

Were it legal and available, I would have to get a plate that said W4N K3R. If you can't laugh at yourself......

I shall be watching that then, now you mentioned it. :P:lol:

Nothing wrong with having your own number surely.

Having your name on a plate though, sure that's an ego trip, tossers.

What I am attracted to is numbers on commercial vehicles, far more suttle.

I remember reading about the london plumber with loads of numbers for his vehicles,

ie. W4TER, B1DET, etc. etc.

(deleted personal reg. numbers)

How about this one?

As they say in Private Eye, Geddit?

(it is a Storm and yes, that is the start of the Nurburgring Nordschleife - six laps - monster!)

What a tragic, pathetic parade of inadequates.

'He's a bit insecure' said the wife.

Say that again.

I thought it was his mother :unsure:

I can't get my head around why anyone would want to spend good money on a few letters and numbers...if you want to tell someone your name or leanings, buy a plastic sticker and plaster it on your bumper...we will understand. ;)

Save money on a personalised number plate by topping yourself, thus ridding the world of yet another vapid ar5ehole while simultaneously avoiding all future expense.

I was offered ABC 123 for £2,000 in 1984 whilst playing a round of golf in Leicester.

Still kicking myself.

"ABC, it's easy as 123..."

Think what you could've sold that for to a mourning Jacko Wacko!
