    1. You need to have registered to bid online well in advance.
    2. Priority is given to opening bids in the room.
    3. It's lot more fun to be there and get carried away and buy stuff you shouldn't
    4. Their internet bidding has had problems in the past (down for several hours!) although last few times I used it it was OK, but wouldn't risk it for soemthing I really wanted.
    5. You get to see some really nice cars (and their registrations) in the car park.

    You need to be careful they are addictive just like domains, but not £5 a time!

    Care to share what you bought?

    Bought WEB 80Y at DVLA auction a while back to add to the collection :)
