That is what we are hare for... sharing gyan.
It is sort of craze in Punjab. Not every time you can get hands to VIP numbers (those are auctioned these days). This way it is cheaper. Moreover, a non-VIP number will look unique & catch the eye. Say - If my car has a regn no. - DL 3CAB - XXXX, it would look regular. But, if the same has got a old no. say - DLC-XXXX, it will be easily spotted & many people will be curious to know how I get the number.

I believe the old vehicle regn surrender scheme in favour of new vehicle are operational in most parts of country (even in Delhi, as I have seen few cars with old numbers), but not sure. Can somebody check & confirm this?

his HH splendor.

And yesterday, I saw a red beacon Innova bearing the number HRS 27 on NH 1

Default Lucky with second hand vehicles

I bought a Thunderbird with the number 990 (previous owner paid 500!) and then I bought a Safari with the number 8888 (previous owner paid 13000)

It now puts immense undue pressure on me to pay for a VIP number next time I buy a new vehicle. Am thinking 8889

I got 9669 for my car. I noticed it after I bought it.

My dad was superstitious earlier and used to get a certain number astrologers "prescribed". It did not work out too well for his last car. Now he does not give a rat's fart to the number

On second thoughts, my bike sports 2596 - the first two and the last two digits are mirror/upside-down images on the digital font.

I have got #4 for my vehicles :

HH Splendor : DL** ** 0202 : 0+2+0+2 = 4

Santro Xing : DL** ** 1642 : 1+6+4+2 = 13 = 1+3 = 4

Somehow got 0202 for my bike without even asking for.
