    no offence but I don't think anyone will even notice/recognise what you've done with those... plus altering the spacing (and/or the font) to spell the words would make you liable to being pulled and fined mate.

    sorry

    NUT= why oh why?
    LET & VOX= I've never understood why people buy numberplates specific to the cars, cos when they sell then, they either lose the plate as it stays on the car or they end up with a plate that's useless as they now have a different car. If you get the LET one then suddenly decide you want a VXR, the plate would be useless to you

    Bye bye VXR Castle Combe Edition - because it's done more laps of Castle Combe than most Bergs have of the Ring

    what happens if you buy different car?
    Observe the masses and do the opposite

    The buying and selling of plates is big money now i got mine 4years ago for £500 & now the one that was under mine has gone up to a grand making mine worth more the car ones can be worth a bit if you get the wright buyer but i just got one with my name on, just in case i forget it LOL If you sell the car keep it on retention, sell it in a number plate auction or sell it back to dvla

    I think the VOX one would be my choice out of those. I've been looking around at plates recently, I've seen B3 RKK quite cheap, which I'd space B3RK K, and K13 ERK which could be K 13ERK (my surname is Berkery).

    None of them mate, If you are going to spend money on a personalised plate, get it personalised to you not the car..

    i prefer ones to the person aswell tbh, unless your keeping the car forever isnt really worth the hassel, also spacing like that could cause problems,

    saying that mine is space "A2DY V" and ive never had any problems
