Good or Appropriate Number Plates

Post by ScimiTom » Mon Jun 03, 2019 8:47 pm

I spotted this one last Friday. Appropriately enough, it was parked outside the School of Classics at Edinburgh University. I did have to ponder where its weak point might be... :lol:

Interestingly, its sister plate, AK17 EES, is on another white diesel estate - this time a Golf. Both were registered within two days of each other in March 2017 - so the plates could even be the originals from the dealerships!

Cheeky sod keeps parking in my Allotted parking area for my Flat.
And it`s registered as a Blue Bmw, not Silver.
How can you get away with such a blatantly Illegally spaced plate on the wrong colour car??. :evil:

Tee-hee! :wink: On that note, I think the colour Mark saw on the M4 is in fact classed as 'blue' by BMW/DVLA. I saw an M6 in the same colour recently, and when I looked it up the car colour was listed as 'blue'.

Seems to be a Bmw thing, or are they just that arrogant that they think they are above the Law??.

Sorry if that upsets Bmw owners on here. :w
