Stiff competition for the number (and a snip against the other number I wanted which went at 45k!) but it's going onto a beautiful turbo cabriolet that's about to be imported from Dubai.... see you when we're back, appreciate a heads up on any decent Porsche track days in or around Wales Very Happy

I do happen to know someone who put the wrong set of tyres on his Porsche, which lasted about a lap on the track before smoking everyone else off!!

Would be more interested in the GT3RS itself, but I hear they're like gold dust over there... Surprised We apparently have a waiting list of about 150 people for the new GT2, with reportedly 4 coming in.... so whilst my baby is LHD and will probably ultimately head off to Germany, I'll probably be keeping her for a bit longer than the required 12months!

5OPH was the plate I was after, as an investment for my daughter, but it would be a little too much on her first second hand car when she gets to that age.... decided it would be cheaper to change her name by deed poll to DB14KRG although it's a b*gger to pronounce Grin

Looking forward to being back to proper road driving after 20 years away, hope to wave to a few of you as we pass....

Sad Sad Sad

R5 POR

It's worthless! R prefix 1997.

993 RS built in 95 and 96. I thought a R* TP would have been good on my car.

I have 911TP on the car at the moment but will probably move this onto my E at some point.

R5 POR Maybe not worthless? If your name is Patricia Olive Richardson and you run a Renault 5 it could be worth £250 Very Happy

It never ceases to amaze me how much people pay for registrations at these DVLA auctions considering that many are subsequently worth about 50% less when they come to sell them on.

Are people willing to pay more because the registration has never previously been available?

£8,000 + for T911RBO ? For that dollar I would have thought there are literally hundreds of nicer plates available......but obviously it’s completely subjective.

I've always been surprised that anybody would pay good money to have any kind of personalised registration number on any vehicle.

When I bought my first 993 it already had the number plate A993LAD on it. I didn't pay any more for the car with that plate than I would have done if the seller had put it back on its original N reg plate.

When I sold the car I left the plate on it for the new owner as it seemed quite a fitting plate for the car and I hadn't paid anything for it.

Discovered a few weeks after the sale that the buyer had quickly put the plate up for sale and put the car back on its original N reg plate.

Good luck to him if he made a few quid but it still surprises me anybody would bid for these things.

Any idea what A993LAD would be worth? I guess it's a bit obscure and might only appeal to somebody happy to be considered a lad.

Personally I like the look of a personal plate. Not if misspaced though. It’s no more an odd choice than putting different wheels, body addenda, or replacing parts that are clearly still working fine as ‘preventative maintenance’. It’s all part of being into cars. A broad church- something for everyone.
