My favorite was when Tobias Funke had a whole set made up with things like DR HOUSE, etc.

"Loved wife"? It should be BLVDWIF then. But then it is Boulevard wife. And that means something else entirely.

One of my neighbours has a Porshe with the license plate "UWANKER". It always gets me when I see it. It would look ridiculous on a lesser car, but on his Porshe it fits nicely.

I drive a VW R32 and have the plate 4MOTION because its a Golf with AWD and the plate confuses people.

I have even had people argue with me about my car not having 4motion when it does. The only place VW put a 4motion logo was on the shift knob.

You mean unlike Audi, which puts the damn Quattro badge everywhere?

There's a Jaguar I see locally every once in a while, with plates reading "JAGOFF".

Also, saw this one the other day, had to take a picture:



Based on the music coming out of the window before he parked, I'm guessing he paid a couple of hundred bucks to tell people he really likes Nickelback.

I know I have seen some Passat's with the 4motion badge on the right rear of the vehicle.

I recall once seeing a vanity plate on Mercedes CLK 430 that said, "HIM8NTZ"

I also recall a vanity plate on a red Mazda Miata that said, "DO ME"

By the way, how much do these vanity plates typically cost?

i think in california they're about $100, but you also have to pay extra to renew them. i'm not sure though.

It completely depends on the state (in the US). I remember growing up in Washington and they were very expensive. Here in Maryland they are only $50/year or something (total). Virginia was even cheaper (35?).

My key man policy restricts me from having vanity plates. The insurer (a Berkshire Hathaway company) feels accidents happen with high profile activities like vanity plates. Not sure that I would have vanity plate anyway but I find this highly ironic as Warren Buffet sports vanity plates on his (used) Lincoln Town Car that pronounce "Thrifty." His daughter gave him the plates apparently for a Dad that had everything.

No I haven't tried the Buffett angle with my insurer. I hope they forget about me and stop raising my rates. My pilots and license and scuba certification give them fits.

That seems odd, better that than a membership to the Homemade Aircraft Club and Rube Goldberg Memorial Ramshackle Diving Equipment Society...

I believe it's possible to get very subtle vanity plates. My friend's father who was running for (and won) office had W02-DNC for Warner 2002 Democrat.
