Car plates KNI8 BRG , TAI8 WAN and BEI8 BER - Shirini

Hi,

Just wanted peoples opinion with regards to subject car plate's

Do you think they hold any value ? or just worthless

  1. KNI8 BRG (Knightsbridge)
  2. TAI8 WAN (Taiwan with 8 special number for Chinese)
  3. BEI8 BER. ( famous pop star Beiber)

Highly appreciate all feedback positive or negative.

Maybe I have a blind spot with these so-called personalised plates, but No.1 would have been totally meaningless to me without the prompt. (Now I look at it, it's still pretty meaningless.)

No. 2 has a special 8 number? But it has a 1 as well. (Does that not mess up the "lucky number"? I.e., 18, not 8.)

No. 3 is off-target as well. The er... celebrity's name is Bieber. BE18BER isn't close, although marginally better than No.1.

Whether anyone is idiotic enough to want to spend money on these plates for some obscure reason I don't know. I wouldn't, but maybe I'm not representative of general opinion.

I've only ever seen one that produced a reaction in me and that was PEN15*. I don't think I'd want it on my car, though.

*I looked this one up. Apparently it's worth over £100,000.

The first and only law of economics - the right price is what some other poor sap will pay.

People who buy plates like this tend to be illogical - so if someone really sets their heart on it they'll pay an inflated price. But I agree with FP - these particular ones are pretty far-fetched.

Personally I'd never have one - although one number, genuinely issued in London in 1972-73, was rather splendid - OGO 2 L.

Thank you so far FB and Avant for replies , in all cases the 1 is easily stated as I on plates, I know they are long shot but I have high hopes for plate one ,people in Knightsbridge area pay inflated prices for anything knew , I paid £399 each, so far I've had offers between £1500 to £2500 for each I know I.ll make at least what I paid.

More opinion's appreciated ,I might hold on for abit.

Afew years i had plate DU13 UAE people said its worthless its been advertised on RegTransfers for £ 35k now.

I sold it for just under £10k being bought at £399.

OK. I give up. I've been staring at it for several minutes, to no avail.

What the hell does DU13UAE mean?

More importantly, why would anyone pay anything for it?

Why do I get the impression that the OP is trying to advertise?

Hi

I'm not advertising here. I have them advertised already with companies that do that, I just want honest opinions which give an idea if they worth holding on to.

DU13 UAE stands for Dubai United Arab Emirates

Arabs have love for car plates.

I have A few, Mainly aimed at Arabs most notably

DHI3 ABU ( Abu Dhabi reversed) the aim is to attract attention

I do believe KNI8 BRG will do well.

Another individual has LOI7 DON for London advertised at Half million

My ones relevance is in a niche affluent area of London.

Russians oligarchs and Arab sheiks hopefully take a punt.

This is another universe from the one I inhabit. Actually, it's about two universes away. I don't get the personalised number plate thing most of the time, and when you add to that a whole foreign culture I'm just lost.

Best of luck with it.

I paid £399 each, so far I've had offers between £1500 to £2500 for each I know I.ll make at least what I paid.

If you have been offered £1,500 then surely you will make an easy profit if you only paid £399. Why not just sell for that?

Part me would love to just sell quick ,pay for a nice Xmas holiday away but another

Part says hold on for now, I'd hate it if I sell and the companies offering me there valuation flip it on for more.

I didn't really get the urge to display these 'special' registration plates. However each to their own. Jimmy Tarbuck has COM 1 C, which always brings a smile, but most are very tenuous and you need some help figuring them out.

Had a few interesting ones in my early days. 1787 KW was one. Might be worth something now to Kevin White, born 1/7/87!!! But after 1963 a suffix letter was added, then a prefix, then the current system. It did creat a few interesting combinations, but again you had to have most explained, which clearly misses the point of having one.
