See, I don't get that plate.

He has a fabulous car and he chooses to chav it up with an illegally spaced number plate?  I think they look shite and scream desperation for attention.

If he spaced it normally it'd look good and classy  - instead of naff and chavvy.

iFly. 

BMW are going to be miffed. They need to come up with a new name for their hover car now.

Spaced as CO5 1M A G

Fecking hell, I don't normally agree with MrM3 or eldavo, but I'm going to agree with you both in the same thread!  :o

I completely agree - I simply don't get why anyone would spend money on a seven digit plate like the above two examples

And then mis-space it?

How to ruin a nice car - put a cheap plate on it!

(obviously there are seven digit exceptions like OOO7OOO, WH15TLE, MC14REN etc etc - definitely NOT cheap!)

If you are going to put a plate on a nice car, make sure it either starts with letters and ends with numbers, or vice versa starts with numbers and ends with letters

This is just my opinion, I'm a plate snob, and I can totally understand how people might think these 'pre 63 style' dateless plates are pretentious and also scream for attention

One of the most expensive I've seen for a while, a current shape Range Rover wearing 1JW drove past me Sunday, now that's a proper plate!

I saw 1 FA on an Evoque today. 

Worth more than the car I'll bet.

Last year I saw 1D on a Bentley. That would be defined as a pricey plate, I'm sure.

So, is CC's wife or wife's car called John & who is VALMCM?

It makes more sense if you know what Chris's surname is!  +++

Chris's wife might be tall, but she definitely ain't called John!

Most people in the street though are just going to think the car is a 2011 and was first registered wearing VA11 MCM

Not exactly expensive but i saw a nice plate this morning.

UC11BMX

White BMW 1 series with an extendable bike rack. On the rack was BMX (looked high end) and some bags of bike equipment. With the 1's on reg plates looking like I's and the illegal spacing, the plate read.

UCI I BMX

From what I've seen, the vast majority of Pistonheads threads are crap. :coffee:

It makes sense when we start adding letters that aren't there but thanks for explaining.

Their management company offered £250k for it.  It was declined.  It was in the press that the owner wanted £1m.
