    It would appear that the cost of band K cars (cars registered after March 2001) which includes AMK and BAM engined S3's has rocketed up.... I paid Ł215 pre budget... fecking Ł30 rise!!!

    The cost of vehicle tax for cars, motorcycles, light goods vehicles and trade licences : Directgov - Motoring

    APY is still Ł205 though which is enough tbh...

    I was reading in Evo last month that road tax in Ireland is something like 2k Euros for all >225g/km cars, so we should be thankful for that. Bloody thieving taxman!

    Yep I was in for a shock too - I used to have a 2000 (APY) and it was around the Ł200 mark and now I have an 02 BAM and Ł245!!! What a joke!! I'm definitely getting it remapped now. Might as well get my money's worth!

    You still Can be happy in UK because in Ireland I pay over 150 euro for 3 months ('02 AMK) and that's according to the engine size; tax dependant on emission applys to cars registered from 2008 on.
