Lot of time on your different pictures i can see a special, typical or funny number on the rear licence plate.
Hear in France it's difficult (sometime impossible) to obtain a special licence plate.
We have 4 numbers / 2 letters and 2 numbers for the departement.
It's just sometimes possible to have choice for the 4 numbers.
I have tried to obtain 5400 ZB 67 but impossible and a friend obtain 5555 ZL 67.

What numbers did you obtain or buy for your special licence plate ?

Regards

In California you can pay $35, and get any combination of 7 characters (numbers or letters) including some symbols like a hand, heart, star etc. Granted, the combination you pick b=must be unique, and there's a website where you could check availability.
The standard California plate goes NAAANNNN (N=number, (A=alpha)..

Mine is 1COOLVC..

I don't - but I saw a Silverstone M5 in the Hillsdale Shopping Center (San Mateo, CA) parking lot yesterday with plate "(love)2DRVM5" (the "love" is a "heart" symbol.)

Anybody on this board?

If I DID have one, it would be MMMMM

Marlin -

My plate is close, "M5 PWR" (different state, though). My state wouldn't allow 400HPM5 because of some stupid rule about having a space between the two zeros, and "M POWER", "M PWR", and other variations were already taken.

No...38D Hexadecimal is 908 Decimal.

So, if they really wanted the Hexadecimal equivalent of 911 Decimal, it would have been 38F.

Hmmm... must be a girl drives that Porsche! Let me guess... you saw that plate somewhere in Silicone Valley (Oops! I meant Silicon Valley!)

You are right... it was 38F.. F is huge, no?
