OK, I'm not normally one for personal number plates but my better half is offering me the opportunity to get one with the new car. Options are (bearing in mind my initials are A.F and my surname is Duff):

AF07 DUF

??07 AFD

?? AFD

I think I know what I prefer, but what do you think?

If I had to, I'd go for the ?? AFD - its cleaner and not year specific. But I agree with the gerbil on this one:D

Chose number 3.

I think personalised plates are only dorky if you try to make words that aren't there.

AFD are your initials so thats fine.

Personally I'd opt for the ??AFD, but then that's not my initials. I do quite like the 'Hairy One's' P155 0FF. Although I do agree that it would be a bit easy to remember if you rally did P155 someone 0FF :lol:

However, I do remember one of my brothers telling me not to buy a personalised plate!? :rolleyes: :wow:

There are so many ways he can make it up to me. He's getting rid of a 156 and I've still got one (well, when I get it back! :cry: ). I'm sure there are some accessories that need a new home :lol:

p.s.
How about F12 SER
or F12 ASR, or F12 AZR
Well, apart from the fact that anything starting with an 'F' costs a small fortune :wow:
Or A159 SW, or SW07 JTD, or A12 JTD
Or, S8 AFD (S & AFD)

Although my K8 FCD works better as Kirstine and I share a middle initial!

Personal plates in the UK aren't dorky...


... they're just incredibly lame.

Just one of those "let's-copy-what-they-do-in-the-US
-but-not-quite-get-it-right" fads.

Works with a California or Florida plate with
a real word, but not swanning around a UK
town with W4 NKR or whatever.

What next? People quoting their telephone
numbers using the letters on the keys.

01273 POSEUR

:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Personally I wouldn't bother. When I got the MG I thought about getting personel plates - but I didn't I'm pleased to say. The fact that the car has the old version plates is a bonus in my eyes :) However, if you are going to get them get the ??AFD one.

AF07 DUF

is the only digestible choice where 'private' plates are concerned. Anway, aren't all plates private? No one else has got my Polo's ;-)
