What have you done with your UK paper tax disc following the changes in road tax rules on 1 October. If still waiting for your A3 please feel free to respond for your existing car. Please no posts on pros and cons of the changes.

Interested to see how many have left the disc in the car and how many binned it or hanging on to it for now.

Many thanks

Interesting thread. Head saying bin it but heart saying keep it....a. Grew up with trying to tear the disc away from the perforated edge on the DVLA tearing the actual disc itself. And b. Windshield looks really bare without it!

Mine is sitting right in front of me on my desk, still in its holder (Richbrook silver job). Still not decided whether to keep it or bin it... once I removed all the glue from the holder, it does look rather nice! Took the first opportunity to declutter my windscreen though, came out straight away, glue removed and windscreen cleaned again! No trace...

I've just found the Audi tax disc holder that they gave me on pickup day, still brand new... anyone need one and want to buy it? ;)

There are people out there who collect old tax discs. A 3 quid tax disc from the 1920's is now worth 800 quid! I'm throwing mine in the back of a drawer, could pay for my retirement at that rate of appreciation...

Apparently if you have one of the last tax discs that you had to cut out yourself (DVLA ran out of perforated paper!) it will be especially valuable.

My current TT is hopefully going at the end of the month, so I've decided to let the dealer deal with it!
The A1? That's the wife's issue :p

I'm off on holiday to Germany for two weeks in my A3 tomorrow so I've taken out the tax disk but I have my German "Umwelt" disc in it's place in the windscreen. Better than having to have two discs.

Took it off the windscreen on the night of Tuesday 30 September.
I've kept it in the Centre Console though - just in case !!

I'm going to keep mine as a reminder of my first, and possibly last, Audi...

What? You've booked your car in to the garage to have your tax disc removed.

Yeah I get the garage to do everything. When I had a 4x4, I used to get the garage to put the mud on it for me as there isn't much where I live in the city.

You bought your car from an Audi dealer who ripped you off on price, didn't keep you informed, made a rubbish attempt to prepare your car and then didn't want to know about any problems afterwards! That's what a stealer is ;)

But they are not all like that :)

In the same way that the term "lawyer" gets corrupted into "liar". As a retired liar - er I mean lawyer - I resent that...

This joke used to circulate at one stage of my working life. Imagine you are the first to arrive at the scene of a road accident. All you know is that either a lawyer or a dog has been run over by a car; how do you know which it was? Answer - if it was a dog, there would be skid marks on the road.

Always keep old documents such as tax discs, service invoices etc etc and pass them on to a new keeper.

I bought my car in May and never bothered fitting it to the car as I knew it was becoming obsolete in October. It's still in the glove box. ANPR wouldn't have picked up the tax disc not being displayed lol

You got VERY lucky. I know people who have been fined even days before 1st October for not displaying them.

Removed and cleaned windscreen which was annoying due to residue from the glue. Tax disc itself sitting in the glove box in case it's all a trick from the government lol
