If you read Rubirobv's whole thing, he says he couldn't get "pretentious asshole" to fit, which I took as some sarcastic humor, so I thought immediately of that Monty Python skit which is one of the funniest skits of all time. Yes in AMERICA unfortunately that slang is most often used to refer to a particular part of a woman's anatomy; but over there in context it is most often meant as "an annoying/contemptible/objectionable person or an idiot." It can even be twisted to apply to someone high on alcohol or drugs. I figured with the reference to Monty Python, there would be no confusion which meaning I was hinting at and I meant no offense to anyone. Being that it was a continuation at some sarcastic stick-poking, I never entertained the possibility he or anyone else would try to slip it by the local DMV and actually try to put it on his Jeep! It was a friggin' joke. I won't bother Googling the skit for you, but watch it, it will reassure you I wasn't trying to be a jerk or piss off the women who read this stuff. In my head I thought everyone would "get it." Sheeeesh.
So to all who didn't get it and took it the wrong way, my apologies. But I did look up some British slang to be sure, and its the "a" version, not the "i" one.
FWIW, "reet" is their slang for "cool" or "OK" or "right" in case you thought that was some other inappropriate plate.
