    The goverment just seems to like screwing the arse out of every working british person! What with tax, and fuel prices going through the roof, and a mortgage the size of a 3rd world countries debt, I have about 2 shillings and 6 pence plus a turnip to spend om myself :keule:!!!!

    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:haha:!!!

    ahhh but I don't mind paying... it is money well spent... after all it goes to mantain our excellent roads and maybe traffic police... and if nothing helps to feed those in need like the scumbags that accidently trip and fell over our wing mirrors, accidentally nicjing them..

    Wonderfull place the UK.

    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?

    2.0 TFSI Quattro Sport 3door built after Nov 2004:

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