I'm not going to lieI don't really like any of them. What about if you got your initials you can get some nice prefix ones with maybe LMC??
I have a problem because my initials are GB and the cost of them are a joke.

I have a personal reg that looks like a normal reg, It would only be true car geeks that realise my shape focus wasn't made in 07 that would know it's personal.. But it's personal to me and that's all that matters..

I went for the first initial of my name, then the next 3 digits are almost my full surname... Then my 3 initials..

All my friends think it's cool, but to anyone that doesn't know me it looks normal. I kinda like that though, keeps attention away from the car and makes it less memorable if people get upset with you!!

This is where I wish that I didn't have an easily memorable plate - many a time I think I should've thought it through a bit more :D

Mine is my full first name middle initial and 1st letter of surname - but because of the spacing rules (and I know I will get pulled if I get it laid out like my name) it just looks vintage. I then get 'oh, a personalised plate...Oh, it's your name!' when I have to dish out the reg :D

Mine was £250 to buy and apparently now worth £600...yeah. Right.

I'm not a fan of private plates, but I'd say L33EUM, when I glance at them both the numbers on this one sound like an 'e' whereas the 1s sound more like an 'i'. Looks more like L-i-eum to me then!
