Posted here on behalf of a friend.
He's looking for £950.
Can only go on 57 cars or younger.
Just to clarify, in order to comply with DVLA regs, it should be displayed as TA57 YSL - but where's the fun in that :D
If interested, drop me a line and I'll pass on his number.

A local business owner has a plate that spells his surname - at least it does when wrongly spaced.

He has had his workshop make plates that move under control of a small switch on the dash as he had already received the DVLA warning notice after the local Police lost their patience with him and he didn't want to lose entitlement to the plate....

I can image the combo of driving an SL and an illegal plate would be like a magnet and iron filings!

I possess two "personalised plates",neither of which spell anything at all.

I am not sure what message the person who rearranges the spacing of a plate to make a word or name is sending but the message I am receiving is definitely not what they intend.

I can only assume that your local business owner has some deep inadequacy elsewhere in his life.

I have never been able to see the entertainment value of a number plate but perhaps I am now just a Grumpy Old Man.

Regards,
Nick.

Anyway, re the OP, my view is its worth no more than any other "YSL" reg and I'm sure the Laurent clan are already sorted.

These "stretch the imagination and the law" plates seem to be dying out?
