Out of interest, does it cost more than a ‘normal’ plate? It’s super expensive in .be so not many people do it. Also the plate is linked to the person so no point in buying one which says ‘635i’ if your next car is an Audi .

Cost is 2k€ fwiw, and you can have anything you want aslong as it fits the plate(9 digits). Not obligated to have numbers or letters either
It's so cheap here because the fee just lets you reserve a plate online from available combinations _within the existing scheme_. You can't deviate from this, nein nein nein.
My company cars so far were all puns on the model in the number at the end, fixed two-letter code for the registration district in front, and company-mandated two letters in the middle - all within the scheme of <1-3 letters for the district> <1-2 letters you can choose> <1-4 digits you can choose> <optional E or H for electric-ish or historic>.

And a car transporter with quite some interesting mix of more or less classics...

... let's see: Merc SL and E55 AMG, Corvette, BMW Z3 and Mustang, the white one at the top is a Alfa Romeo Giulietta SS, but I have to confess I have no idea what the green one is:

Can't find a thread about customized license plate, so I'll post it here.

Seen this morning.

Mostly my feet, occasionally a Tesla
I understand this will be seen as cheating by some, as I saw it in a Citroen dealership, however, it’s not common for a Citroen dealership to have an SM in their inventory in 2021. You can just about see a 2cv behind there as well.

The rear 3/4 is not the best angle for an SM, but still…

Saw this 9000 Aero today. I really like these late model 9000's.

Then just as I stood half a block further down the street with my phone out reading complaints from FG Telegram that the 9000 wasn't a Volvo, this thing parked up.

Those full width LED rear lights are getting common, but I'm way behind with modern cars. - What was this?

Seen today:

Menacing no-nonsense apex predator: Porsche 911 GT3

Fiat "Brüllwürfel" (engl: screamcube), these are so utterly loud, but there is no real music to it. Like a song from a tiny speaker at peak volume. It's just noise. Meh.

Old, rare, and quirky: NSU Ro 80
DSCF7628.jpg


Never seen big sand dunes in the middle of Zürich, but what the hell do I know: Merc G-Wagen
DSCF7668.jpg


Ferrari 812
DSCF7722.jpg


The real attention grabber however is a cute old MG. 100%. The end.

And then, my last spot of 2021, is also one the best: Ferrari 308 GTB

The want is so high with one of these, yes they are utterly slow now and eat money like a motor boat, but still. - Just lovely. So much. So want.

Of all plates to get, this owner didn't choose the rectangle .ch plate and just screwed to the euro bracket? the square plate just looks awful...
