Plate Blackout

Gentlemen,

Just wondering: why is it that some folks feel the need to obscure their number plates? Is this some great state secret that can be reveled on the roads, but not on a forum?

Just one of those things I've always wondered about....

Cheers,
- SteveN

I am a member of the special ops team in the military (SASR) so i have no choice but to cover up my number plates for identity reasons. I don't know about others though.

There were some carefully planned thefts a few years back at a car show... The thieves got the numberplates written down, then went into the show and knocked off the ones on their list... I would imagine alot of people could be worried about this?

I am not so worried, but then again, I don't go plastering my plate all over the internet either!

Some of us may have various mods that can affect warranty and thus would want to conceal the identity of the car. I have added a third turbo...keep it quiet though

I'm not fussed about mine being shown.
Never really saw the point in covering them up anyway.
