Default Reg number 850r

Hi all I'm looking to sell my registration number " E8 SOR" ( E 8SO R )

I had this on my 850r estate and since selling it I have the number on a retention certificate

I have had it valued and it's worth £700

Would look amazing on a 850R

But you'd risk a fixed penalty and an MOT failure for shifting the number and letter.

I have driver 25-30k in mine for 15 years misplaced and never had an issue. Same with the wife’s and everyone I know.

Start putting calligraphy fonts or metal plates on and yes,

But

E 8S0R

I would be astonished if you ever had any come back from that.

I was astonished when my car failed its MOT earlier this year for its registration plates! I have been using them for at least 10 years and passed fine for all that time on multiple cars...

They failed them on not having a postcode & bs mark on them which according to the rules they cant actually do

They passed in the end

Yes I know you can face a fixed penalty and MOT fail

I had it displayed as " E8 SOR "
