    how much for "BL04GER"

    Had my 21st birthday last month, and my parents got me a personalized number plate, I like it BUT you need to have a 04 or newer car to use it

    Don't really plan to buy a 04 car so will have to sell it somewhere down the line.... So how much do you think the numberplate is worth now? and would you sell it now or keep it in the hope it would go up in value?

    The numberplate is "BL04 GER"

    Id say its worth £200ish, but like many things its worth what somebody is prepared to pay for it.

    BL02 GER and BL07 GER are both available on DVLE site:

    but the point is the 4 looks like a G when in number plate styling, hence BLOGGER

    Best personalised plate is the one a colleague has - M15ERY.

    He's married and it explains a lot....!

    I still doubt its worth much more than £200, 06 would be better but guess someone else is driving round with it.

    Unless you really need to cash, why don't you keep it on retention until you have a car that you can put it on?

    Oh sweet $deity. I really do agree with you here as this is ... Another one of my pet hates, the obfustication of numbers / letters on number plates to make it look like something else, or just plain hide the registration.

    There are strict standards about how your number plate should be set out, at what distance it should be visible from etc ...

    If you don't clean your number plate so it is dirty and obscured #fail
    If you intentionally add items to the number plate which effectively change the lettering (the infamous black screw cover between 1 and 1 to get H as an example) #fail
    If you place a cover over the plate to restrict visibility from certain angles (eg to make it difficult for speed cameras to read the plate due to how they are angled) #fail
    If you vary the style of presentation or writing on the number plate to follow a 'style' #fail

    Get caught speeding with any of the above and you can get a fixed penalty as well as instructions to rectify. Failure to rectify earns you points or even a disqualification if it means that you have done it intentionally to prevent those in authority identifying you ...

    Please, just don't do it.

    Altered plates are one of my pet hates too - italicised letters make me mad in particular.

    Agree on dodgy plate annoyances, but seems the police don't care around here sooo many have them but they never get stopped or anything, and there must be tonnes of dodgy MOT stations as well Very sad.

    As for the plate, keep it on retention you will get a car new enough in a few years time. I regretted not buying the plate I wanted when they came avaliable as I thought i'd never have a car new enough, my current car is only 2 years too old VS 15 which was the one I had at the time and its only 3 years ago I saw it so not that much further in time.
