6666 is currently being used on a Range Rover by someone in the same office bldg as me. The number 6666 in the auction would be ~ 2-3 million HK$.

No.6 is currently being used on a Rolls Royce by our TV broadcast owner , RANRAN SHUN.

I guess I have seen 666 somehwere but cannot remember.

I have not seen 66 yet.

the price of these plates are retarded. People paying more for the plate than the car at times. My parents have something like that. For me...I'll take the MTR or the Taxis...

Thats a sad society if all it boils down to is bragging rights.

FYI, all income from the auction goes to charity. The first personalized number plates earned over 11 millions HK$ (~1.4m US$) in one day! All $ went into charity.

hahaha, these auctions are pretty cool. it's just crazy how much somebody will pay for a pair of license plates!

is the most expensive one ever auctioned off still the licence plate "9"?

my parents stuck "168" on their plates.

Yes, you are correct. The registration mark 9 was auctioned at price of 15 millions HK Dollars , that comes to ~2 million US Dollars.

I am a bit worried that the last auction MM 11 was priced 260K. I was thinking to beat for the MM 33.
