Hi all!! I don't know whether this has been discussed yet or not but I couldn't find a thread, or at least not one that answers my questions.
Aaron and I are panicking about next April '08. For those of you still in the dark, the lovely Mr Brown is putting car tax up - alot.
We're still very confused about the tax banding relating to what car you have, the size of it's engine, the CO2 emissions output etc....
We have a 1998(R) 156 V6 - but not with the 2.5 engine anymore. We had a painful 2006 when the cam belt went and instead of departing with the cost for repair, we departed with the cash for a 3.0 V6 engine from a 2000 GTV.
Can anyone tell us exactly what band of tax we will be looking at paying?
I'm assuming our level of CO2 emissions is the highest but doesn't it depend on what year the car was registered too, which in that case do we go by the 1998 reg of the car or by the engine we have underneath the bonnet?!!
Any thoughts or help on this would be much appreciated.
