My New Car

    This post has been on my to-do list ever since I bought it about a month ago but I finally got round to cleaning it and getting some pictures.

    It’s quite an upgrade from the 2.0 litre ford focus I had before :)

    As any sane person would know, it’s fairly obvious that the plate in one of the pictures above reads “E 3 O N X” and although the place where I got it printed said it’s technically illegal due the spacing I didn’t think I took it too over the top – I mean I’ve seen cars with plates that are blatantly taking the piss with letters cut off, bent and even the black pins positioned so that it could be difficult to establish the true registration.

    Anyway after having it on the car for several weeks, a number of police cars behind me and one even pulling me up for supposedly having it declared off the road when I went to the tax office and taxed it myself it seemed they wasn’t that bothered about it… until one pulled me up the other day and got his little ruler out to measure the spacing and stated by law the first and second set (E3 and ONX) have to be 33mm apart. I didn’t bother asking how far they were and not that petty to actually look a loser and check myself but I would guess that they are 10-15mm apart.

    I got fined £60 and have to change them at my earliest convenience, it is on my to-do list I swear :D

  1. Wow, did you get your toy from the blogging income Richard? Here in South Africa, such kind of vehicles are known to be driven by the black elite who have benefited from the government’s Black Economic Empowerment (BEE) policies.

  8. Cheers everyone for the comments,

    @ Steven – I haven’t bought any properties yet no, that will be the next thing I am looking into investing in though.

    @ Greg – You can’t just make your own plate no, I bought a personalised plate E3 ONX and then got it printed “slightly” ;) different to make it look like BON X

  9. Nice ride. What is E3ONX supposed to mean?

  10. BON X, The Bon is due to my surname (Bonner) and the X is the only letter I could pretty much find to follow that was available.

  11. Nice ride.

    I think your license plate should say “R3BILLZ” though. :)

  13. Haha that would be pretty funny Paul, however none of the people I personally know, know of this type of thing so I would get bored of explaining.

    @ Adam – Yeah that type of post would be good, I will get it done in the next few days when I’ve had chance to review my recent schedule that I’m using. I’ll also include information on the newely found affiliate marketing secret weapon I’ve found ;)

  14. You could get a whole bunch made up like “FLOGKING” or “ACAIPIMP” or “BIZZOPS” or something. Not that you would ever resort to promoting stuff like that, but it could throw off your competition. ;)

    If you wanted something all your buddies would recognize, you should have gotten “PAGE 3″ on there. :)

  15. Yeah, when you detail your day can you also tell me exactly what time you’re not home and where you leave your house keys so I can send in some Ninja’s and do a bit of spying on your campaigns?

    I just need like a 20 minute window. :)

    Cheers, I was lucky enough to get it outright so there was no need for finance etc.

    Cool then, you sure probably saved your cash for a couple of months with a price that’s over 40-50 000$:P

    At least it’s really yours and can’t be taken away!!
