    Budget < Cars

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/4834480.stm

    just looking to see what difference the tax will be.

    I have an a3 1.8T, Don't know the emission rating but reckon it's Category E.

    I know there are new style MOT certificates now, does that contain the amount of carbon emmisions on it?

    Why worry about it - it's peanuts compared with all the other costs of running a car? The difference between a 1.8 Mondeo and a Bugatti is less than a the cost of a tank of fuel (for the Mondeo). Hardly a disincentive?

    I believe that is the case, they have also been babbling that it might only apply to new cars from april, but I don't see how it applies to 2001-now I'm sure we'll see in due course!
