RIB XX wouldn't be irish as it ends in letters. It would have been R1 BXX. Which may have been grabbed cheap and worth a bit now. My kids bought me the Richard Hammond (short bloke, Top Gear) book on cool and uncool motoring. If you drive an X5 with a private plate you are as cool as Jade Goody! Anyone interested in a nice X5 complete with plate?

I've never grasped the pricing logic behind these private plate things. Why should RIB 520 be £500 more expensive than RIB 535? And please don't tell me it's because a BMW 520 is cooler than a BMW 535. And I'm sure RIB 757 would be a lot more valuable to a RIB owning Boeing 757 captain than a Beemer 520 owner? Or is it perhaps that Boeing 757 captains have more going on in their lives than worrying about personalised number plates

What's the point - unless

It has to be a good one to be worth having.

Your initials followed by the number 1 perhaps.
Or something amusing perhaps.

One of those things to spend your money on when you've bought everything else but still have nothing to do!
Or have bought an early varient of a car and are trying to disguise its age by putting a cheepie plate in it.

RIB XX. Guilty, Its mine. I bought it for a number of reasons. Firstly it take away the fact that my Land Rover was new and I was feeling embarrassed that I had spent so much money on a new car and sending out all the wrong signals to my customers(one reason why I let my car stay so dirty). Secondly, and the reason for RIB is that, although today my boat is made of wood, I have had many RIBs in the past and I am a big enthusiast. If that is not enough justification, for the last couple of years, I have held a significant interest in the ribbing industry. I am delighted to see so much interest in it and if any one wants to make me an offer I canít refuse, I wonít be offended, I donít mind changing it, I have a few more.

dvla personalised plates

the cost of a plate depends on how much you want it. In a recent dvla auction AW55OME was reserved for £950 but sold for £6,100. If your name is common reg prices are higher- every one chasing the same name.....I got lucky not many Geds in this world
