Did any of you get the option to look at a list of plate registrations that you could choose from the dealer (although I realise it is the last 3 letters only where you would have a choice)? I have been told you can no longer do this and you just get assigned one, unless you want to pay for a private one of course? Is this true for all of you too?

Thanks in advance for any help. :rolleyes:

Car ordered on:
July 17th

Fiesta Titanium 1.4 5dr Auto
Moondust Silver
ESP
USB with Bluetooth
Parking sensors rear
16" 7 spoke alloy wheels
Curtain air bags
Lumbar support
Full sized spare
Carpet mats

Delivery Date (possibly and hoping for) :)
26th September

Depends on the dealer,the smaller ones will usually let you do this if you want,the bigger group ones tend to do it centrally and have little control at individual dealer level.

From the dealers point of view theres no benefit,except a bit of goodwill,but it can take a lot of time on their part,its much easier and quickerjust to allocate a number to each car on a list ,without involving the customer.

I think they designed the plates to be as dull as possible and then hold back anything half decent so they can sell it on at a minimum of 245!
