    Whats the best irish car reg you seen
    Loads to choose from obviously
    One the first i noticed was 00-D-540
    It was a brand new bronze volvo s40
    The reg was made to look 00-D-s40


    Or did you ever own an irish car with a reg that meant something specifically to you

    My dad knew a fella who bought a new Ssangyong Rexton with 05-MO-515 or "osmosis"

    Subaru WRX STI with 05D571


  • Registered Users Posts: 519 ✭✭✭ French Toast


    IIRC there was a Corolla G6R with a reg something like 00-G-6 which was pretty cool.

    Remember having also seen a few boring Peugot 206s with 206 plates.

    My da had a Porsche 911, I don't remember the year or the county but the digits were 911.

    It's actually mentioned here somewhere on Boards, by someone who spotted it about 10 years ago or more!

    Wasn't there a BMW with the same reg as its model? IIRC it was 645 CSI

    I saw an Aston Martin with cc D 1007, but with a large gap between the 1 and the first 0.

    I don't want to drag politics or Brexit into discussion but I was in Birmingham 2 years ago and seen a personal reg as they do in UK. D15LEO. I Have a photo somewhere to prove it.

    I reserved MA12CUS at one point before it was released but chose not to proceed.


  • Registered Users Posts: 72,612 ✭✭✭✭ colm_mcm


    There’s a Peugeot 205 owned by a Peugeot indie mechanic with the reg GTI205

    I believe there’s a bit of a story behind how it got that reg, and that it was originally assigned to a Morris Minor or something.

    Pretty sure 05d15200 is a Lexus IS200, subtle but actually cool. Not many 5 digit options for an Irish reg.


  • Registered Users Posts: 206 ✭✭ Doublebusy

    Have to ask what does that reg mean

    Whats the reg mean


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,377 ✭✭✭✭ For Forks Sake


    Back before the charge went to a grand there were plenty of Peugeot dealers reserving 206, 306, 407 for themselves each year.

    I've seen an M3 with reg 03-L M-3 doing the rounds before


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,377 ✭✭✭✭ For Forks Sake


    Forgot, used to work work with a lad who had a 320i coupe with reg -D-3201


  • Registered Users Posts: 651 ✭✭✭ Roadtoad


    In Belfast there's a hearse which sometimes attends the 'republican' end of Milltown cemetary TC OL or something, 'Tiocaidh Ar la' Help me get this more accurately guys.

    Tipp car 10TN10 (say it). Cute, I remember advising a Tipp friend to book it, in about 2008. He didn't, but I saw it later and said ahhhhhhhh.

    Edit:

    Its T111 ALY

    I saw it at the Bobby Storey funeral.

    Know an Aer Lingus pilot who flies an Airbus A330 and drove a Merc a few years back with an xx D 330 reg.

    Back in the black & white days, every county had specific letters in it reg numbers . Dublin had ZI. The reg 5 UZI was put together sa 5UZI (Suzi) and the Renault 5 Gordini was a sexy little minx. Always thought the reg and the car were made for eachother

    xx LS 400 was pretty much always on an LS400 driven by someone in Toyota Ireland.

    Back in the day you used to be able to reserve already assigned plates, if the first car had long since been scrapped etc. GTI205 would originally be a mid 50s Limerick City number iirc.

    MIN I (Mini) was originally on a 1969 Ford Escort from Kerry, and was later assigned to a Mini (predictably).

    I think there was also a Levin thats reg ended in 111

    Both GTI 1 and GTI 2 were on a pair of MK1 Golf GTI's owned by two Limerick Brothers. Both Reg's were originally assigned back in the 50's , but the Guys who managed to get them re-assigned were big in the Commercial Vehicle Trade...which possibly helped with the swap.

    Pharmacist in Limerick. Brought the Car in himself from the UK and had to jump through a few hoops to get a Leitrim address (but his name) and to have the number held for himself.
    He also has a lovely E9 CSL.

    MIN1 was transferred to a Nissan Micra K10
