I can afford it it’s whether I want to afford it. Not sure whether hmrc will be happy though me not paying my corporation tax etc for it? Have a word with the wife will ya? Is it a legitimate use of my money ? 😁
Arguing with idiots is like banging your head against a wall pointless!
Why oh why do peple pay a fortune for private plates, is it a status thing?? A money thing?? I just don't get it,,, god! ninety percent of the time when I was younger I never wanted to advertise my plate on the lc, was as small as I could get it for obvious reasons,,, I did have a mk2 escort with def 7t plate on it bought from a doctor?, sold the car, and yrs later saw def 9t on some site for sale it was in the thousands,, did I kick myself that day,,, a bit lol,,
Some people get all funny about plates, such is life I guess. I saw two cops walk past my car a year or so back and heard them call me a w**ker cos of the plate and the type of car. Great bit community policing there chaps.
Here you can have what you want on the plate, cheapest costs you about 50 quid a year to keep it current but different amounts for different plates plus there is a one off fee for ordering the plates themselves, but we can have lots of colours and even designs on the plates. Football teams, checkerplate, cats and dogs... thats scratching the surface really as there are lots of options. We even have ads for it that are amusing :
Anyway, I have my plates cos they amuse me and sometimes they also amuse others so its all good. I dont smoke so figure the money can be wasted elsewhere.
