Ok, i've just hit myself up a private plate...

Now do i have it put on my new A1 at the dealers and save myself the £80 fee or should i leave my car on its 61 plate until March then put my new plate on at a cost of £80?

What would you do?

Private plates from the start lol. Still on the lookout myself for a decent cheapish one :(

I'd take the pleasure of everyone else knowing I had a brand-new car and keep the 61 plate for 6 months.

What reg did you get??

That is a tough one.
New plates get those admiring 'dang I wish I had a new car!' glances and make you feel all 'hell yeah! my car is new and looks hot' etc.

So you could soak all that up and slap your private plates on it in March for the whole 'I'm too cool for regular registrations, have you not seen that I ordered this baby in Glacier white?!'

But again... it would be nice to drive off in your perfect new car with perfect plates, all special n all.

But you miss out on new-plate-jealousy stares.

It's a tough one to call.

I'm getting private plates in March because that's when my birthday is and of course 61 reg's won't be new and hot then. :|

I think the A1s shape alone shouts out "I'm a new model" :)

I put my plate on from new saves all the hassle of buying new plates and the £80,plus there are lots of people who dont understand the current number plates.

Yeah i'd also like to have those 6 months of "mine is a new car!"

if it doesn't bother you though - why not put the private one on!

Our private plate is still on the other car, at least until September :oops:

And probably too late now but always bets to get a plate that is personal, not related to the car, that way you get to keep it when you change make/model

I'm thinking of possibly getting my new plate early then.

How does it save £80 getting it done for delivery?

The wife's V750 form (the DVLA personal plate reg certificate) will be in the hands of the $tealer next time we pop over to see them - ready for the car - once it's built and been shipped - when it arrives - once it's been through the PDI - once it's ready .............. :eek:)

We are putting our private plate on from the start - and with the glacier White, it will be a case of those in the know with their cars realising that it Is a brand new one :cool:

Mine's going to be Glacier!! :D
I'm seeing the appeal of the private plates from the start - but might have to drop an option because of expense :|
