Would think that DVLA are wise to it and keep anything back that might be worth money?

I asked for a two digit number so the plate could be narrower. 

Nope.

All the interesting numbers are auctioned off. For example On tbe first DVLA auction S 1 NGH sold for a large sum to a business man from Weymouth. The guy was the owner of New Look clothing chain

A mate of mine restored a T200 Invader. A original UK bike.
But when he went to tax it, he was told the number had beef withdrawn. So he would have to have a age related number.
He asked if the bikes original number had been Re-issued.
Dvla said it hadn't. So he asked to have it back. Dvla said that would cost him £500 as it was a cherished number. So he said. But nobody has wanted it in the last 20yrs. He was told that seeing as he wanted it. That made it a cherished number. £500 please.
