I will never quite understand the connection (and obsessions) men have with their cars. I guess it is also the same with women and shoes or bags. Both are expensive addictions which serve different purposes.
Consider getting vanity plates that bear your name and the year you had your car purchased plus the big car model, if it fits. In 2010, for instance, you’ll be able to make use of the "10" and "60" plates to create new combinations, such as "RO10" or "RO60". If you purchase a brand new BMW and your name is Jim Roth, a perfect registration for your vehicle would be JR10 BMW. Cherished Number Plates are a big investment in many countries because unlike car plates, they can be transferred from vehicle to vehicle and can be bought even before there is an actual “car”. Hence, it makes a great gift to young men about to get their first vehicle too. The term "Cherished Number Plates" has traditionally been associated with dateless registrations. Cherished Registrations can be sold or transferred from one vehicle to another. You can only transfer the number if you are a registered owner and it is registered at the Driver and Vehicle Licensing Agency (DVLA). Also you should be aware that not all number plates are transferable and not all vehicles are allowed to participate in the transferring of a cherished registration.
