Spotted this on new years eve in North Adelaide. It was a BMW with pommy plates. It was driven by a couple of young guys.

American servicemen/woman who relocated from the UK then?

It is very odd, I used my UK plates on my 635csi until I got the SA plates I had a permit to drive with the plates.
My Goldstar kept the same rego as the UK due to its age 1956.

Could be a UK consulate car.

Interesting, I looked it up - mainly because I see a lot of cars with 'consular corps' written on their numberplate near my work. Solved the mystery of those light blue plates that I've seen too.

Quote
All motor vehicles to be used in a public place in Australia are required to be registered. Those owned by diplomatic missions and consular posts, by their respective staff members and by dependent members of their household must be registered with the local registration authority and are required to carry diplomatic or consular plates unless the approval of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has been given to use standard registration plates or unless, in some State or Territory jurisdictions, other provisions apply (see below).

ACT: in the ACT display the letters DC or DX followed by four or five numerals. The plates have black text on a powder blue background
States and territory:  'CC' registration plates are available from the local motor vehicle registration authority.

Just realised it hasn't been marked as exported from the uk. Part of the export process is to notify dvla uk.  Therefore it must be stolen...
