    This reminds me when I was considering getting a private plate not that long ago which had CR-V in it. But then I thought, what if I change models in the future?...

    That's the downside of getting a plate related to the vehicle model unfortunately.

    I once saw a Jazz with JAG 250 on it (Guess what the owner used to drive - could've been their initials I suppose)

    I've got my initials on my plate then it doesn't matter what vehicle I have in future.

    Someone I know once had A911 ABB which could've been a good one to keep on a retainer to auction later as 911 owners would want that one.

    Back then it wasn't such a big business as it is now though.

    I've got FMC on my Capri, but I've had it for 8 years and will probably never sell it. So I was quite happy buying a manufacturer related plate.

    I've got private plates (initials) on both my cars. Have had both for 10+ years.

    I just prefer keeping the same ones - they don't mean anything to anybody else - and it makes my Accord stand out even more in the company car park, as everybody else takes the company car option (BMW, , Jaguar, VAG or Mercedes only on my list :crazyeyes:) so can't have a private plate :Smile:

    Personal view - I think a plate should be allocated to each person when they pass their driving test, and they then keep that for the duration and move it from car to car.

    I have Honda as my number plate and will never sell it either.
