Post subject:  Registration plate meaning!

Was searching for ages a few weeks back for a list of definitions for registration plates in relation to where the car originally came from as I was trying to find out where my new rs was originally from.

Was searching for literally hours but finally found one so thought I would share it with everyone so they can find out where their car is from originally (if you don't already know!)

Obviously it is pre 2001 (51 plate) cars only (definitions for the new plates are really easy to find).

The letters are the LAST TWO on your numberplate! :thumbsup:

Anyway, here you go, enjoy! :chill:
