Personalized license plate (Germany)

In Germany, we can order personalized license plates for the car. Often taken personal initials, birthdays.

The Defender has XR 456 - all my cars carry the X and is the placeholder here for the L, so LR. 456, 4th 5th and 6th letter of the alphabet.

But what should it be for the Ineos. IG or just then XG. But which number symbolizes it? With the Defender there are many with 166, most know why.

Perhaps someone else has already thought about such unnecessary.

On my Diesel motorbike I have 'DI-SL 15'. Our district is 'Dieburg' and thus the (not changeable) prefix : 'DI'. If you read the plate 'DI-SL' , it sounds like "Diesel".  ;-) And 15 is the year of purchase.

My scooter has 'DI-EJ 98', where 'EJ' are the initials of my and my wifes first name, and 98 is the year when we married.

My Kawasaki KLX 250SGF has 'DI-LX 17' with 17 being the date of purchase.

For the Grenadier I will take over the plate I have since over 20  years: 'DI-EH DDMM' with 'EH' being my initials and DDMM being my birth dates day and month.

For you it could be 'DI-IG 2022' (with our prefix in the example).

How about (lets stay with the prefix) 'DI-HP 249' or DI-PS 249' or 'DI-NM 550'?

What's your prefix?

A real Land Rover enthusiast in Germany has the letters LR on his number plate. I will definitely choose IG for the Grenadier. This is how INEOS did it for its first vehicles, at least for those that were registered in the UK. The vehicles registered in Austria at least have the letter G on the plate.
However, there are vehicles registered by INEOS in Böblingen that have IA on the number plate. But as I said, I opt for IG and look forward to the friendly greetings when other Grenadiers meet me. Just like I'm used to with the Defender.

Hm. I think my numberplate will not be B-IG xxx for obvious reason. Thinking about B-KW xxx. ?

Perhaps the IA is an internal type tag which will be followed by IB ... ?

Does anybody know about such type specifiers?

I could rather imagine that it is supposed to embody the symbolised red A in the name Grenadier. They just can't leave out the hyphen on the number plate.

EU, very well know as farmer state. Could also take SLE but that would even more stand for farmers here. ?

I know, but for whatever reason I started to put an X to all my cars, so I didn't take LR and XR instead.

The prototype in Cologne was with Austrian plates, never seen so far any with Böblinger plates. Also interesting to see how German Ineos in the meantime became. Saw many job advertisments the last days on LinkedIn for their German offices.

Have a look at google images, you'll find vehicles with Böblingen number plates there.
Sometimes you just have to go new ways. Why don't you start with the number plate??

BB-IA 106 thanks to Google I found it rather quickly. ??
Think they focus more in the brand than the model as they may plan some more models in the (far) future.

What about LC 300 ? 

in the UK you would be able to get GRE either at the front or end of the plate, but you won’t get “I”, you could get 1 though. will have a play and see what there is

[QUOTE username=emax userid=8900646 postid=1332964008]like '001 GRE' ?
or 'GRE 001' ?[/QUOTE]

Unfortun`tely in the UK you can’t make your own up and are reliant on making something out of the fairly generic registration numbers that the government department (DVLA) release. The ones that have the potential are even auctioned off instead of just being allocated.

Certain letters that can be confused with others are not even used
