Just realised my new car will be a 13 plate :( :eek: :blink: Damn it!!!

Unfortunately I am the superstitious kind and now wonder whether I can delay my purchase for September delivery.

I know some will think i'm just being silly. But thats just how I feel :unsure:

If you feel that strongly about that then another alternative would be to buy private plates from the DVLA website. Would set you back £250 for the cheapest ones though.

I've heard stories of people holding off ordering because of the '13' plate thing. I'm not superstitious, it's just a number and has absolutely no scientific basis for being any different from any other and I won't worry when my Duster arrives this week, touch wood.......oops! :rolleyes:

There have been stories in the press about more people buying 13 plates than 12 plates last year. Best seller is the Ford Fiesta so a 13 plate hasn't put a lot of people off and we are not hearing about things going wrong with other brands.

Maybe this post will jinx me now.

A lot of us ordered in 2012 so if anything 12 is the unlucky number ;)

Not really fussed about the number to be honest, don't think about guys and ye'll be fine.

Going off on a slight tangent - there are 40 models of the Ford Fiesta that are more expensive than the Ambiance I'm waiting for....... I like that kind of number :)

If the Stepway has the same delivery problems that the Duster is having currently, I may have nothing to worry about and save myself £250 quid in the process.

Nah I'm not too worried about it being a 13. I've had my 666 number plate on a few cars so I'm not superstitious at all! haha

Good News!!

My dealer contacted me today after I left a message for him about my credulous belief :unsure:. And bless him, he told me he doesn't think the Stepway will be arriving til end of August/September time, so not to worry, it will be a 63 plate.

Woooohoooo!!! :D :D :D

I'm excited all over again. :wub:

I have decided to tell myself that the Duster won't arrive till end of the month.. So if turns up sooner it will be a bonus ;)
