In US one of my friends dad paid some money ( Dont' know how much exactly ) to get the reg No KERALA STATE-1. . Again the no u find on the Kerala CM's Official carr...
That is sweet. In the US the number plate system rocks.

My Grand Uncle bought a Civic and he sports the number KA-XX-X-42 on it just like his House Door number. He said he would reveal the amount when his wife was not around

There used to be a Zen or something i dont remember properly of an MLA's son. This was around 10 years back.
His car had the number 1111 on the front and 7777 on the boot. "yeh babu rao ka style hai"

Had a similar no. on Corolla , KA 05 MC 8008, this no. brought bad deed to my family (I know this sounds rubbish but cant complain on previous generations !) so on expert opinion got the no. changed to KA 05 XX 2644.

How the no. change took place?

Ans:
We are running a PVT firm and having various branches spread all across South India.We migrated the REG from Bangalore to Pondichery , used the car for 1 Year under PY registration in Bangalore acquiring a NOC certificate from Pondichery.

After 1 Year again registered the vehicle in Banaglore RTO to the above mentioned number. Spent a cool 1.2Lakhs in the process! Will give in more details later on request.

All my cars have KA XX 2345, thats 4 as of now. Its a new system at the Bangalore RTOs now. In case the number you want is out of the present series (i.e its been taken already) then you need to pay 28k to book it on the next series. Its 5k in case its still available in the same series. I have the next couple of series booked too...just in case...

My car number is KL-01-AB-23.I paid only the booking charge of 2000/-Rs.I wanted to get 5000 or 5 because my lucky number is 5.When i went to ask for those numbers they told me i have to go for auction.Then i asked for 23 that time 2 digit numbers are not popular.

BHPians,

Since on the topic, can we have some creative inputs on numerals as alphabets making up words. Some of these are already discussed like :

8055 = BOSS
8088 = BOBB
1515 = ISIS
8180 = BIBO
1010 = lolo
8008 = BOOB

Any more such thoughts from all of you ???
