I've seen KA 03 MF 69 on a white Accent GTX, and I thought it was pretty cool.

I wonder if anyone in Assam has AS 5 H 073?

I have seen two cars with 8055 printed to look like BOSS. One for sure is a black civic and the other is probably a skoda in J Hills, H'bad. I thought they probably belong to Cinema actor Chiranjeevi since he was the hero in a telugu movie by that name(this is within my limited knowledge of movies).

Default Special Registration Numbers

Does any one know what is the ACTUAL OFFICIAL RTO RATE for giving special numbers in mumbai? I hear different rates from different agents here.

I've seen a pretty funny series in Delhi DL 2 FAT XXXX, funny!

But I like my current number best, 0010 although my dream would be to have the following:

M3 with the reg. M3
M5 with the reg. M5
M6 with the reg. M6 & last but not the least,
911 with the reg. 911!

Its not the care ROC. Apprantly if you choose any number, however random, you need to pay a premium. I was asked 7.5k for the No. 7569

Add to that list an E55 with E 55.
Well, Pune has an X5 with the number X5, and the M3 is AP 3.

Singapore had a series S E letter, SE A, SE B etc. When they reached SE X, they decided to skip it.

There was a black Fiat 1100 running in Cochin till the late 80s with the plate KLE 15. This means it was the fifteenth car to be registered in Ernakulam District after the state was officially formed. It would have been cool to have bought the car when it was available!

+1. Absolute best number. Actually, even without the A....just the number 1 says a lot. I also like the "thousands", 1000, 2000, 3000 etc.

I have seen people write DADA in Hindi using the number 5151. The 5s are written in marathi numeral.
