Transaction to Relationship

I've travelled to Leeds to participate in a Sun "Show & Tell" tomorrow and on the way stopped for a tasty Burger King double whopper. I saw advertised on a poster on the site http://www.newreg.com.

It seems to be another site offering the brokerage of personalised number plates, car registrations and/or private number plates. Despite the .com address, it looks like UK only. I checked a couple of plates that might interest me and some of the prices seem a bit steep. Interestingly, the site offers finance on the more expensive plates. An illustration of the conversion of a (brokered) transaction into a long term relationship. Pretty clever!

Dave, Just a word of caution. If you are looking at a number plate, then I'd advise checking the DVLA SOM website first. I've been looking, and have noticed that NewReg appear to quote the same price and then add VAT to it. The DVLA include VAT in their prices. One could argue its a premium for brokering the deal, and I can't dispute that. The other side of the coin is its a large market, and we can buy from elsewhere. Exercise your consumer choice !
