question about private plate?

Recommended Posts

iKiwic

Hi!
Now, just a personal rule, if your posting to tell me how silly personal plates are, I've heard it before.. but it was a present, so it means something to me!

Anyway, I own a Personal Reg, which is KIW 153 Basically, I wan't to know if anyone knows if i'd be allowed (by the dvla) to put it on my Polo, which is G440 AKV.

Some people say I can, others say I won't be allowed, because my Polo is a G reg and a Plate begining with a K might make the car seem newer than it is...

Does anyone know how true this will be? I know you're not allowed to make a car look newer than it is with a private reg, but as mine isn't 7 Digits would this still apply?

Sorry if I'm being a nub!!

Thaaaanks :D:D:D

The KIW 153 plate would have no problem on any year of car as it's not an "age" related plate The law only says if it's an "age" related plate ( with a year denoting letter prefix) then it can not make the car appear newer than it is

As you've found out, KIW 153 is an ageless Irish plate. Had KIW on my old Jetta.

Would be interesting to see who the people are you told you you couldn't put it on :lol:

Was told it was an Irish plate, what the hell does that mean though?!

And was just the standard noobs that make themselves feel better :P

It was first registered to a vehicle in Northern Ireland. They started off with a way to identify the age, but I think it got too complicated so they just gave up. The IW in yours is the area code, the rest is just random I believe.

A personal hero of mine had the license TMW 314 and after my independent record label I always wanted SFT 314 for any car I had but when I check online I can't seem to find any that go 3 letters then 3 numbers. Does anyone know where I can check on this?

Probably can't afford to waste money on it but it would be great to know how much it is and if it's available!

      Hi again. So after chatting on here and trying to solve the problems on starting after refuelling. I’ve got some questions and hope someone can help out!?!! 🙂 
      So each time I refuel I have problems starting. Sometimes it happens when it’s warm and I’ve turned it off and tried to start again a short time after. Once it does fire up I get a really rich smell with a cloud of light smoke out the back. 
      Someone said it sounds like the pressure regulator. Because I’ve established that the fuel pump is working properly. Any one else had issues like this? Please help. G

      Hi all, 
       
      I sold my breadvan a few years back and bought it back recently, it had been in storage for 3 years and was absolutely sodden when I got it back. It started up first time and then didn’t for a very long time until changing the; HT leads, battery, dizzy cap, plugs and clearing the fuel line and fresh fuel. However, it was always flooding itself so I needed to rectify this issue - I changed the SPI unit / throttle body (at this time I didn’t realise there was no gasket). At the time of bad flooding you could hear the fuel pump priming strongly. Since then I have changed the ECU (noticed a change in fuel pump priming), oil pressure switch, both temp sensors and added a gasket to the carb flange. I managed to get the car running and ticking over today (sweeter then ever before) however it’s only willing to run on ether, and there appears to be no fuel getting to the carb. The fuel prime sounds weak now in comparison to the previous ECU. Any ideas? Should I revert to my old ECU? Fuel pump or relays? Many thanks!

      Starts off as a normal thread. Then it turns epic. 
      Posting here so it doesn't get lost.

      Hi
      I recently brought a 6n2 1.4 tdi polo, had massive problems with starting the car, turns out it was the battery as it was only 40ah battery! So I got that replaced and everything was fine, but recently it's doing the same, it just cranks over fast but doesn't fire, sometimes it does it, sometimes it doesn't or it starts then dies about 2 seconds later and flashes up a battery light icon, I changed the fuel filter when I done the battery, any ideas what could be causing this? 
       
      Thank you

      Hi guys; I'm new here so I figured I'd make an introduction. I'm Tim, currently living in right over the water here in the Netherlands! Dutch isn't my native language so I figured this would be a better bet for me. 

       
      I've found a near mint silver VW Polo 6N2, grannys car, mechanically sound, well kept everything at honestly a steal too. I'll be getting it washed and maybe detailed before getting some pictures up. Sadly its an automatic, but the saving grace is for the price, most of the other 6Ns and 6N2s are preeetty ratty and not worth half the salt they're asking for them. 
       
      As for the problem at hand - Only tiny issue is the automatic shifter knob - the transmission upshifts and downshifts/kicks down absolutely no problem, smooth and all, and the shifter moves as it should. Only thing is the small button that you depress when you change gears - it can be depressed and change gears no problem, but sometimes it doesn't come all the way out and it feels like it may be an issue with the spring inside. 
       
      Unfortunately I haven't managed to find anything in my trawling, so I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience with something like this before, and whether its an easy self fix/how long something like that would take in terms of labour?
       
      Cheers!
