    Quattro Road Tax?

    Have just got my Quatttro and someone told me that I'd have to pay an extra Ł14 road tax under 4x4 tax when I renew in 6 months. Anyone confirm this? Just don't get how an A4 can be classed in the same group as a Q7 or BMW X5!

    Just speculation really, I don't think its really a practical suggestion, whether you like SUVs or not; i think your mates have been reading too much of the Mail

    Lets face it, the tax is high (especially on the S4!), but it boils down to about 1 tank of fuel at the end of the day. It wouldnt stop me buying a car because of the road tax; the whole emissions debate is a crock anyway..

    count yourselves lucky guys...the ROI road tax on a 1.9 tdi A4 is 500 eur per year! Any if your talking anything over 3 litre it nearly 1400 per year...betwen that and VRT over here it's nuts to run a normal sallon car
