Default My numbers so far

Padmini - AP ** 1199 (inherited it with the car) - now sold
118NE AP * * 4419 (cost me the 5K) - now sold
Corsa AP ** ** 2313 (inherited it with the car) now sold
Laura AP * ** 12 (cost me 20K)
Lamby MJ* 2880 (cost me a cup of tea, ciggies and a 15 min chat with the RTA!) now sold.

Of the lot I like the 1199 and 12 best.

In my experience, the numbers help when you are selling the vehicle.

Registration numbers with only single digit, Double digits and all digits having same number generally comes under purview of VIP number and may have premium attached to it. Rest all fancy series numbers can be obtained with contacts with concerned RTO.

I got HR XX XX 8555 for my ANHC without any extra cost.

A friend had a RX100 with the No. GDK 100. This same number was visible on a Merc in one of the Micheal Jackson music videos.
Some VIP nos I saw in UK
ORV 1L-ORVIL
R33MA S -REEMA S
V1NAY-VINAY
N31L MR- NEIL MR

In Goa
GGA 1 - M800
GA-08-A-0001 -M800
GDH 1111 - Cheetak
GA-02-Q-0001 - Cheetak
GA-01-N-0001 - Omni
GDG 8008 - My Uncle's Cheetak

I'm sure these guys didn't pay a single paisa.

I have seen 2 civics in Chennai (both colors should be from the same family) which have a plain white number plate and NO number on it.

Tata Nano: RJXX XX 0001.

For only Rs. 5000 (Standard charge for Fancy Number) without any auction. Local RTO was happy to oblige us on this one.

Now how many Merc, BMW, even Ferrari owners have this sort of luxury!

How do most of you get your VIP numbers booked? Directly or through an RTO agent?
