I have 4545 in my current car - this is a pre-owned car - the original owner told me that he had paid about 20K for the number. I did not care about the number at all. But every one who has seen the car has noticed and commented on the number. I still can't get the hullahoo over a car number.

We have 3636 as our car number, and it looks cool, especially considering we got it for free.

Default 5555

I got this number for my Honda City with help from my brother, almost free HR XX P 5555. My brother also has 5555 on his car's number plate. When I talked to the RTO guys directly they said its a RTO fees of 25 K etc, however i didnt pay much when i brother talked to the right guys.

I originally wanted 9999 or 7777, however both numbers in the present series were already booked. even I am not a big fan of special numbers. I think its a bad thing as your car can be very easily identified by unwanted people.

Default 00's anyone?

Hi Mates, I am kind of fascinated by numbers that end with "00's". Odd I didn't find any on this thread.

Our present car numbers:
Qualis - 4500
Swift - 7500
Omni (the odd one) - 6660
I wanted to get a similar number for my Lumina out here in Dubai, and the closest I could afford was 76500. That in itself cost me INR 50k, if I wanted a 7500 out here, it would cost a bomb! Btw, I am thinking hard about the number for my booked Fortuner now. Probably a 500 would do good!

Cheers
Champion

Paid 17k for the number MH-02-AP-888 for my 2005 Swift. Did it only because my mobile number is 98xxx88868.

Guys, how much would a number like "DAV 7", "DAV 1", "CHK 2" be worth?

Mind you, these are not the actual numbers, but approx ones. First two are delhi, last is chandigarh. What would be the difference between a "1" and "7"?

thanks.

These are old reg. numbers . generally transferred from old vehicals , but you can contact the respective rto's a nd see if any one is available . but it will involve huge amount for sure.

I paid 2K for the no. 3131 for my Indigo. I'd never tried for a VIP number before, and never got any good ones either. Until recently in Trivandrum, you could book any number you wanted for 2K, and unless someone else also applied, it didn't go to auction.

Now, the booking amount is 3K and the most sought after numbers have minimum prices ranging from 5K to 1 lakh. This was done after it was found out that political influence was being used to prevent auctions, resulting in huge loss of revenue for the government. A minister's son was issued a number A?-9 for Rs. 3K (usually auctioned for amounts in excess of 1 lakh) and the movie star who obediently backed out of that auction was allowed to get his favourite number in the next series cheaply. The largest selling newpaper made a big issue out of it, and the new rates are a result of that.
