Im far too good to you Liam. :pancake:


ahaha, cheaper alternative. bet he never thought of doing that.. :pancake:


its worth it if you think it is .. had mine spaced illegally till i got stopped for it twice and the wife once ... but most people who knows me can see it ... D11FFD .... for my name DDUFF


damien duff? change your location to fulham. :ninja:

personally, i think personal plates are good if you have £250 to blow. as golf man said, its just like buying a new mod for your car, if you like them go for it :thumb:


i was thinking of dropping him a line when he played for newcastle ...but never got round to it lol

that says N2O ELD to me.......... doesnt even slightly make me think of the name NOEL, sorry Scort fella.
it just looks like a random bunch of numbers and letters like any old plate if you dont point it out(much as many of these Private plates do), so it begs the question.... why bother at all?

suppose I get it if you can actually spell out a geniune apllicable to yourself) word but other than that its seems pointless.

as I see it I could say my mk5's plate is a private and no one could really argue the toss as I could simply make up some random definition of the numbers and letters which knowone would see unless I pointed it out to them.

incase anyones missing my point ere........... I think the whole private plate shite is just that........shite :pancake:

any monkey can buy and bolt on.... an individual creates

you have to really ask yourself something when you consider trying to insult me.. do I really seem like the type of person who gives a flying shite covered monkey F*ck about your pointless comment?.. I'll save your deminished intellect the struggle..that'd be a "No"
Anything can be made to fit.... thats what hammers are for silly!
All posts are the view of the writer and not necessarily that of..... actually no, I dont really give a flying flame toasted turd, dont read my posts if you dont like em R-tard.
no one can accuse me of being "two-faced", Ill call you a nob behind your back and to your face... the latter preferably so I can watch you uselessly blow your lid
being directly honest with your opinion may not make you well liked but it will get you appreciated by the worthwhile few with the sense to understand.... Id rather be appreciated for who I am than liked for what I'm not.

yeh i know what your saying but its like any private plate you dont knot what they are meant to be unless its obvios. but people who know me saw it straight away. i dont think people get them so its obvios to everyone else.I got mine because it were a good plate for my name and it were only £250 wasnt bothered if people could understand it. all fair points thou its just like any mod on a car you either love them or hate them lol

If you can get a good one then they can be okay, but it doesnt just stop at the price of the plate, remember every time you want to take it off a car to ut it on a new one it's an £80 cherish transfer fee, and takes 7-10 working days, or if you decide to leave it off the car then it £105 a year to retain it! Its ALOT of money unless you keep it on your escort forever :innocent:

i have one and so does my wife, i thik they are great as he neighbours then don't know how old the car is, i only have my initials on the end and the first is like a normal plate. the two cars blend in and i think adds a bit of class, peronally o think they are worth having but only if you have it for life. i dont see ht epoint of a car specific one.
