You can tell im bored at home tonight :!: ;)
Anyway, after seeing the first pics of the 09 XF, with its XUF reg, its made me think what I would hope to get for my XF.
So guys, keeping it fairly realistic for a free reg (so no MY09XFR for example), and using the prefix for the area where you are buying/bought your car from, what would you want you reg to be?

Im buying from Oxford so believe my prefix has to be OD, OE, OX or OV, so with this in mind the reg I would like is:-

OX09OXF

XF FX, If like me personlised registrations turn your head , get one that makes your car stand taller than it already is (and oh boy doesn't it stand tall anyway!).
Hence SNOB TOM :) Please sit back and think because you can then personalise your cars for life.

I did check out the dvla web site and the registration MY09XFS is available for around £650. Now don't all rush................... :D

I simply could not afford a plate based on 09; what would I think in Setember if an XF passed me sporting the plate MY59XFR :?:
No, I will stick with a cherished plate and keep my car shiny so that until Jaguar re-skin it or discontinue the colour, nobody will know, except all of you, that I can't afford the latest :cry:

I agree with you Pekem. Bought my plate at DVLA auction years ago and swap it onto every car so no-one knows its age so can't judg me. What's more everyone tries to guess what it stands for when in fact it's just a random set of letters that looks okay!

When Jaguar announced some two and half years ago (roughly) that the forthcoming replacement for the S-Type would be called the XF I logged onto the DVLA webiste that week.

So I have kept on retention the number that I chose for £250 all in, with the intention of either putting it on a new XF at some point or selling it on for a profit. Unfortunately the number "4" had gone, but I am now the proud owner of an XF in red, with ivory trim and carelia alloys, and the number plate...

J6 GXF

It has had some admiring glances, more for the car I feel than the number plate, as there are very few XFs around these parts... so far. Sorry but I don't have a digital camera and wouldn't have a clue how to upload a photo even if I did have one.

Number plates are always subjective though and I don't criticize anyone who says they are a waste of time and money.

I also own a 10 year old MX-5 of which only 300 were made, kitted out with everything as standard, including a full leather interior and body kit. That has the number J1 ELO. For those who like their music, ELO were/are led by Jeff Lynne. Again, that was a DVLA purchase.

It is interesting to see what is on their sometimes, but it is really for a wet dark winter night when you've nothing better to do. Or am I just sad... :eek:

The forthcoming DVLA auction at the end of March is offering 6 XFL (for V6 XF Luxury owners?) and JAG64R. I think the first might be reasonable but what guess for the latter?

Surely the latter would cost a pretty penny? I asked my dealer about reg's and he has none available with XF on - I guess they were 'reserved' for those that collected their cars first - I noticed the car reg in the first 09 XF pic was XUF and the car behind his car was JAG...
On dvla my09jag is being sold at a later date, but you can buy MY09XFS for £785.

As I am getting car from Oxford I was hoping for OX0 prefix, but my dealer has only OU0 but the 3 'random' letters he has available and has offered, are my initials, so, although no one else will know they mean anything, they do to me :)

When I started my business 10 yrs ago I bought K17LTS for £300.00 and it looks great. I also have A20NBR

It certainly turns heads, and helps with business at the same time :D

3 cars is cool... its just the insurance companies that cause a prob - as I am finding out :!:
Admiral seem to be aware of todays life styles though and have a multicar policy; and very reasonably priced too :)

Thats cheaper than I thought, could be worth considering; could 'sell' it to hubby based on the 'MI5' appearance ;)
