Default VIP Car numbers

Hi anybody here purchased a VIP number in auction or something ?

I think 4.7 Lakhs for a number is ridiculous amount if its going on a Hyundai Terracan.

Ludhiana, November 9: An expensive number for an expensive car: The first number of the BW series - PB 10 BW 0001 - was auctioned for a whopping Rs 4.7 lakh by the District Transport Office this morning. ...... http://www.delhiwebsite.com/read.php?read=196

cheers,
ash

SRK there is a guy in Navi Mumbai who has this number on his Accord. ofcourse not the IM bit, bit it still looks cool. He's used the digit font and you don't realize it's a number till you are very close to it.

Default Number Plate Sold For More Than 20000000

Yes its true......

In UK, the number plate was recently sold for £254,000, which equates to more than TWO CRORE RUPEES and was a record in UK.

And guess registration was........ "51NGH" !!!!

and "MR 51NGH" sold for £101,000!!

We always used to get VIP numbers for free due to some contacts in the RTO department but 3 years back the Govt. changed rules and now charges a fixed fee for these numbers. Before that we've had the following numbers:
4411
1234 (twice)
6400
4321
5050
0010

After that just have had the number for my current car & paid 10k as fees to the govt for it 0010 is the number (again).

In Trivandrum, AK 47, went for aution and was sold for some whooping amount. I am not sure how much it exactly went for.

Now in Kerala, since every municipality or so has an RTO office...so now getting fancy numbers is much more easier than before. Earlier it was KL01 to KL14....now after the new rules it has gone up to KL50s or 60s.

I paid only about 4 grand for the 8877 on my Mercedes. 4.7 lakhs is ridiculous, and foolish!
