Forget luck being a lady, it’s all about your personable wheels in 2015. With two companies changing and renaming the game to let you strut your stuff in style. If you’re not already aware, the number ‘5’ is a lucky number in Chinese culture, bringing with it versatility, adventure, progress, freedom and independence.

If you loathe routine and tend to bore easily, Personalised Plates Queensland (PPQ) and Brisbane MINI Garage have the perfect combination for change with their new MINI 5-Door Hatch and PPQ’s new format colour plates. They’re the perfect way to add personality and style to your appearance on the road.

The famous MINI just updated its urban appeal with its new 5-door hatch, while maintaining the same go-kart handling and reliability consumers have grown to love.

The new MINI is completely customisable, allowing you to set the tone of your MINI, from its exterior and interior colour and tyre spokes to the seat covers. The MINI can also adapt the overall driving performance and experience to your current mood, with a simple twist of the driving mode dial. Go GREEN for a ‘slow and steady’ option for the most environmental and economic driving experience or channel ‘The Italian Job’ in SPORT mode for a spontaneous and exciting drive.

Arrange a test drive with Brisbane MINI Garage today to find out what it’s like to turn heads from within the stylish new MINI 5-door hatch. But, there’s more to the MINI than just looks.

What’s in a name? Everything, according to Personalised Plates Queensland, who have just launched a new way to be noticed on-and-off road. For the first time in over a decade, many of the plates containing Queensland’s most elusive three-letter, two-number combinations will be back on the market thanks to the release of a new colour plate format. The new combination format consists of two numbers and three letters on a choice of more than 50 plate colour options.

Three-letter combos can be teamed with birth years or favourite numbers to give a fun stamp of individuality and bragging rights to the state’s hottest plates.
Make sure to get in quick and 5COR3 by claiming your perfect personalised plate with mass 4PEA1 on their website now.

Let your car be a reflection of your style and personality this year and be proud to prosper with this perfect ‘5’ combination with PPQ’s new plates and MINI’s new 5-door hatch.
