786 apparently holds some religious significance for the Muslim community.
Even mobile numbers with the 786 combo are actively promoted by sales agents to Muslim customers.

Hay, there is some numerology behind that. Its said that 786 reads BISMILLAAHIR RAHMAANIR RAHEEM which is the very first verse of the Quran.

Here is a linky.

786 is the number of pages in the Quran.

I wanted that number for my car when i got mine earlier this year thinking that it won't be in such high demand cos its just a random number for most common people. However I was wrong . The buggers at RTO demanded 35k for it . Needless to say I gave it a pass. Looks like the fact that Bangalore is techie land doesnt help .

I saw a BMW X5 with the plate 'MH** X5' This is in Pune. Quite appropriate for the car (similar to the Audi R8).

KL 01 AK 47 was sold for 2.95lac and KL 01 AK 1 was for 3lac if I remember right?.

And I have seen the KL 01 xx 8055 too.

Nikkibike's number is one I love, KL 41 42 43

One I wish to have is KL 31 32 33

Think no one knows about 1618
