    I know a few of you have private plates but i have seen some of your lovely abodes on the pictures.
    Bit of fun really but I fancy a T6 pre fix plate like T6 VCT
    I however live in an ex council house in the middle of a council estate in downmarket Rotherham. Will I look like a pretentious middle class wannabe prat?

    For me It’s not about “rising above” it’s about making your van ageless. Mine is a camper that I intend keeping for a lot of years.

    Thats the thing. Whether your a Jesus sandal wearing lefty tree hugging hippy or a high flying Thatcher loving business exec. There's a Transporter for you and everyone in between. Classless or one for all classes.

    If the plate means something or is personal to you, then who cares what the neighbours think. I've never had a personal plate before I got the T6. Mrs Donkey got me it for xmas. Everytime I see it, it puts a smile on my face. In this day and age when smiles can be hard to come by, that makes it priceless.

    For me my plate was a gift from my parents on my 18th birthday. I like that it's personal to me and removes the age from my van.
    With plates starting at around £250 they aren't as middle-class as they potentially used to be.
    I say go for it.

    My wife got me my plate for 5 years in business, hence the plate T60 RER. It's been on all my work vans and wouldn't look right without it.

    Personally I love a good number plate. My MH is a Pilote and that's got P31 OTE and that cost less than £200. Not many people actually notice these plates, which I actually prefer, but those that do like them. Either way, they're mine and I'm happy with them.

    Mine is nothing to do with the van.

    If you want one go for it :thumbsup:

    It could make your van look older to the other residents which in turn might draw less attention from potential jealousy scratches.

    Always fancied one, and my T6 related personal plate was £175 ..... And like @Dieseldonkey, it makes me smile, and makes the van ageless, as said before.

    I've got one on retention just because I didnt want anyone knowing it was me after living in similar environment to Blitz. The way the van is now though with the 2 tone means its easily recognisable so im popping it on as soon as the holder arrives for it. All id say is get something related to the person not the vehicle unless you are keeping it forever.

    I see mine as an accessory.

    Did look but I can’t find anything related to my name etc without paying silly money. I think I’ll have the T6 for a while in order to get my moneys worth out of the mods. I’m adding thousands to it but know in reality I’m not going to get most of that back on resale

    If it pleases you then go for it.
    I have K9 YHP - My business is Yellow Hound Photography and I 'shoot' a lot of dogs.

    There are so many options, you just need to use your imagination.
