I have been hunting around the DVLA website for a little while now and have found M99 KEP and with my name being Michael Parr, it looks a bit like Mike P

It's 245 including the fees. I know it's probably the least useful and least practical object you can buy for a car but i like it! Is it worth saving up for ?

I have Y100 JAR and I get a lot of stares and compliments.. Looks very odd on an older car but i think it finishes off a brand new car spectacularly!

Thats it! i shall save up. As you might have guessed i do not need convincing. My dad will not be happy as he is one of these people who think people with personalised reg plates are complete co... mods are about!

Sainsburys shall be getting overtime requests ahoy!

well, i do. i believe that it would be illegal to display it as M99KE P but that would be good!

Does anyone else think it looks like MIKE P ? just a little, ikkle bit ?!

It's funny when people spend so much money on a private plate and it looks nowt like their name.

12 pints and that wouldn't look like Mike to me. But hey ho, it's your money. :D

oh noooooo. its either that or P2 RRX or P7 RRX or something that vaguely looks like PARR.

Then again, my money saving up skills are really, really bad

Pesonally, I'd save the money and wait until you have enough to mean something to others as thats the main point of a plate, for me at least. I could have gone with X100 or D100 but Y100 sounded much better.

It will take me a while to save up so i will have plenty of time to think about it!

I think i like P2 RRX as it looks more like PARR (sorry keith if it doesn't!)

I think they finish off any car, now all i need is some money :)

I might take a look at this for a good 09 plate. Mine is rather unfortunate and is just asking for the 9 to be tampered with to make a rude word!

Sorry but I dont think it looks like Mike either, I wouldnt buy a plate just for the sake of it maybe looking like your name, if you really want one, keep saving and saving and wait until you get exactly what you want. We brought our plate for our son, even though my OH name is Max too its for our boy when he is older, its actually doubled in price since we brought it, so its an investment too, we got ours from speedy regs and its an Irish number plate it cost over 1k though. Its MAX 265X and there is no mistaking the name its supposed to read lol.

i might go with my original idea from years ago and get one with MKE at the end, R99 MKE looks alright.
