    Plates

    Ok, since i'm not british there's a thing that's been bugging me whenever reading posts..

    You're all talking about plates, quote: "[..]I did mine on a 51 plate"

    What does this mean?

    Part 2 in the pic is what people are referring to.

    It identifies when the car was first registered as new on UK roads.
    This changes twice a year. For example this year cars registerred from 1st January to 31st July all had "09" in that position, anything registered from 1st August to 31st December will have "59".
    If the car had been registered in 2006 it would have either "06" or "56" in that position.
