    At the end of 1999, at the turn of the year, I got an offer for my cherished number from a company who flogs private plates.

    They offered £2500 and stupidly, I turned it down at the time, greedily thinking I could maybe get more for it with all the Millenium hype that was going on at the time.

    Still got the plate on my car ( as you can see from my avatar ). Think I will just keep it now, have no idea what its worth at present.

    I was quoted 5000 for my old plate. G13NTS i haven't sold it yet but maybe i can make a few quid profit. My new plate cost me 400 quid GT5 5HAN. I like my new plate more.
    Just need to sell the old one and invest in a few extra mod's.

    put it up for auction set a high reserve price and see if any1 bites it will give u an idea of the value.

    plus if a private plate seller offers u an amount u can bet its worth at least double.

    There was a local businessman near me who had an Audi S8.

    The reg plate was "S8".

    I think that would have been worth a few bob or two?.

    I dont think he still has the Audi, think its on some sort of big Merc now from the last time I saw it.
