And if you have a Berlin car with Berlin plate and you borrow a friend's car who also lives in Berlin, can you (legitimately) use your own Berlin plate on your friend's car?This isn't correct! The plates and their numbers are linked to a car and after being re-registered to you or other persons, the plates will always change if you or the car moves into another town.
For example. You live in Berlin. The plates on your car got the number B-xx xx. You move to munich or sell the car to someone from there, the car has to be re-registered in munich and the plates get a munich number like M-xx xx.
Only if you buy a car and you live in the same town, you can theoretically keep the plates to save the money of producing new plates. That means, you are from Berlin and sell it to someone from there, the car can keep the plates B-xx xx.
(Temporarily rendering your own car "plateless".)
