asking price was 1500 BPounds to be exact and

missing the W. And it wasn't the only one

advertized in "total BMW" magazine for some

outrageous amount either, some you really have to

push hard to read into it at all.

You mean they have a shortage of inmates in the

UK that they cannot support a personalized lic.

plate program?

Excellent Alpina special issue (Oct)

no vanity pates avaiable from british equivalent of our DMV. Therefore, when the coincidental combinations come off the line ,they have a crazy value. I have watched this for years with wonder and amazement. I think i even saw a program about it once: the oldest/first plate was "1 M" , i think. must be in a museum.

IN ENGLAND THE # PLATE STAYS WITH EACH CAR FOL LIFE .

WHEN A CAR IS SOLD THE PLATE STAYS WITH THE CAR

SUPPOSEDLY FOREVER .

WHEN A PLATE COMES ALONG WITH SOME SIGNIFIGANT # THERE

IT SEEMS TO ATTRACT A LOT OF INTEREST FORM COLLECTORS .

HERE IN THE STATES YOU COULD HAVE A " 2002 tii " PLATE

ISSUED IN EACH OF 50 STATES EVERY YEAR . IN ENGLAND

THERE IS ONLY ONE CAR EVER TO CARRY THAT PROUD NUMBER .

This is a big deal in Hong Kong too. When we lived there (pre-handover), vanity plates with desireable numbers were selling for crazy money. What made a plate valuable there was the presence of lucky numbers. According to Chinese numerology, 8 is the luckiest number. 4 is very bad, because in Cantonese (and possibly Mandarin) 4 rhymes with death (both words sound like "say"). One of the higher ranking locals in the government was allowed to keep his government car vanity plate as part of his retirement. It was something like "88" or "888", he was fielding offers from rich locals in the neighborhood of $10k USD.
