    There is a GLE500 near me with MB16GLE, in black with Night Edition and Designo interior.

    I prefer a brighter look :):)

    Not an MB but when I worked in the Vehicle Contract Hire we had a customer who had a Scaffolding business. His name was Richard Head (Pertectly true !) of Head Scaffolding in Dunstable. He had a Sierra Cosworth and his registration number was MBO 110X. It was displayed on his car as M BOLLOX. :rolleyes:

    Going off topic slightly. In the US & Canada when on site, of a night would play the linked quizzes in bars. Always used the name 'Bollox', that way others in the co would know where we were. :shock::shock:

    Never won the sport round as it was always baseball and football questions.

    Seen a few good ones about.. Integra Type R with S10WEH (put a space between the W and E).
    Also some years back V14GRA on a Volvo S40.

    On the subject of 'Quiz' names. A group I knew way back used the name "Norfolk and Chance".

    Say it quickly and the inference becomes apparent.:D

    By pure chance I was issued a plate some years ago with GMT000. Never kept it but it was quite unique.

    Back in the day, a mate who moved to Cambridge, Mass with Lotus Developments (Lotus 123 for those who can't remember) had 1mbps or similar on his Rabbit GTi (the hipsters car in those days).

    Whilst on the end of a business trip, I caught up with him and prior to going skiing in Vermont was invited into LD to see the then 1st 3D spreadsheet under development. When signing in, I couldn't use my employers company name, so put 'Microsoft' as 'Company' in the visitors book :shock::shock:

    When the licensing system was changed in Malta some years ago, a driver had to go to Floriana, the licensing centre, and could buy a personal plate with almost whatever he liked on it. It became HIS plate, which he keeps when the car is sold. The Transport authority on Malta actually makes the plates while you wait - embossed and hologrammed. You can't go and buy plates from anywhere else.

    Some did not look far enough ahead, so a driver with a BMW 323 would proudly buy that as his plate. When he changed his car, the plate looked stupid on his new Merc. The system is changed now.

    A canny local in our village bought FUN 1, FUN 2, FUN 3, FUN 4. They matched all the families cars, and the island atmosphere.

    A number of years ago they changed the rules in NZ too. The restriction being it had to be no more than 6 characters.

    A friend had a car he used for work and a rally car. I tried to get him to put "4 WORK" on one and "4 PLAY" on the other but for some reason he wasn't a fan of the second one!

    Over here, all registration plates are unique. That's the point of them...
    Well, I say unique. One at the back as well, so not unique at all. Sorry I mentioned it.

    A friend of mine has 1 POD and 11 POD and another friend has 50 ROO and 50 ROD which look remarkable similar when his cars are parked next to each other
