Long shot - recognise this number plate?
« on: April 24, 2014, 11:38:51 AM »
Any RX8 owner recognise this plate? FM54 UXD. It\'s a non-running 8, bought at an auction a few months ago apparently. It\'s parked up in front of our building, and it\'s been suggested that the guy who bought it may want to get shot of it. Just thought it was worth a shot to see if anyone recognised the number and had any history. Thanks.:Thumbs-up

No mention of it that I can find on the RX8OC forum.

I did see an auction catalogue where it was shown as;

Lot 4003 Mazda RX-8 231ps Reg FM54 UXD
First registered 04.02.2005
Showing 83,235 miles (TAKEN AS INCORRECT)

This was at Bedford in March this year. Along with a whole host of other random stuff (bottles of whisky, wine, beer, computer stuff, TV\'s, watches, etc), so not a specialist car auction. There were only two other cars in the auction of thousands of items. A bit weird!

Thanks for the reply! Haven\'t seen the guy to speak to him about it, but it may be that he bought it on a whim and found it not running and wants shot of it. We thought it wasn\'t running as it appeared here with the towing hook sticking out the front!
