    You would think so but the missus takes the 2 shillings and 6 pence, so I'm left with the turnip, wouldn't mind if it was a Swede though!!!

    When they introduce the new Bands the facelift S3 will be one lower that the current model (J insted of K I think). Only 40 quid difference I think but all ads up. The sportback will still be band K though interestingly..

    Yep mine is a 2004

    2008 - 210
    2009 - 300
    2010 - 430

    30% rise each year, at least they have the 'decency' to give us some notice

    Effectively another tenner per month which doesn't sound so bad, although 300-400 over 200 is enough to put off a few people no doubt, myself included!

    Just a slight offtopic question.

    Did you guys get half a year's worth of road tax when purchasing the car new, or a full year?

    I was given half a year, and was told by a friend that it's not normal?

    quotes a "first year" cost of 550 - why so much more for the first year, when you're already paying VAT on the purchase?
