    Mine on the left, my mate's new Evora on the right, picked up earlier this afternoon. I had a drive of it - it's a bit special.

    Saw 2 cars on a driveway:
    ORG 45IM
    and
    MM11 MMA

    No idea what the second one means. Perhaps owned by a adult star married to a mixed martial arts fighter?

    It's obvious that peoples opinions differ on what constitutes a "good plate". I imagine Piston Heads would have a meltdown with some of the plates shown on here

    I liked this one that I spotted in a Morrisons car park.

    That is a good one but perhaps advertising for a tug from the Boys on Blue :-)

    Which is everyone's (including mine) initial thought.

    The car is owned by a lovely women in her 60's and having asked her that very question, she says she's never been pulled once since ownership.

    Saw FA57 FUN on a maroon Porsche GT3 (or similar) this weekend in Nottinghamshire.

    And I tried to buy MR71 NCH but even the DVLA knew I was lying ;)

    Interestingly one of our cars is showing as similar. God knows what it going on. They transferred my wife’s personal plate to her car without linking previous MOT history, so all in all a bit of a mess.

    Just seen A808 BOB; I guess Bob owns it!

    I noticed it because my brother has A808BER; he is a bobsleigh coach.

    I took the photo around 2019, so it could quite possibly be on retention now.

    Or maybe I photoshopped it for attention...

    Today I saw J1 MNY on a Suzuki Jimny.

    It made me very happy.

    Keep seeing 21 S on a basic VW Polo, it’s even plain white. The plate must be 10x what the car’s worth.

    Saw ‘V6 AWD’ on a silver Audi avant, not sure what model it was but I’m fairly sure it was a quattro.

    Maybe just a standard Northern Ireland plate (so it doesn’t date the car)?

    Possibly owned by a chap called Theo, but as suggested more than likely just a simple, cheap dateless NI plate.

    As I've a couple of personalised reg numbers that I've had on cars in the past (currently on retention), a few people have tried to find the hidden meaning in my current plate

    It looks like I've gone out of my way to buy something a bit cryptic, but it's simply a current Northern Irish plate as the car was bought from a dealer in Belfast.

    Thank you both. I was not aware NI plates were different.

    Having checked, the FEO 543 plate isn't an NI plate, but simply a plate registered pre 1963 that has been transferred to to a later vehicle.

    The rules for NI plates are well described here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vehicl...rthern_Ireland

    ...and EO isn't an NI county code.

    The GZ code in my plate marks it out as a Belfast car.

    Does anyone on here have a plate beginning with BO55? Usually spotted on Range Rover Sport SVR’s.

    Amazing.
