TS 2.0 Emmissions

Can anyone please explain to me why the DVLA list my 2.0 TS in my 2007 156 Selespeed as having Co2 at 244 G/KM Emissions. Whereas other websites quote it as 205/212 G/KM?

They stopped making 156 in 2005.
Your "2007" car will actually have been made in 2002 (I'm assuming it is one of the late registered pre-facelift Malaysian batch or smoke damaged Australian batch).

Because they were non EU cars they've ended up in a high tax band, possibly by actually getting tested for real rather than just trusting the fudged factory tests.

Thanks for that David C.
I know its unusual history from Alfa Uk. But they didn't know the year of manufacture.
Can you estimate by my gallery photo?

Your pic shows a facelift front.
Has it also got the facelift rear?

The fact that it is a facelift 2.0TS indicates it has either had the facelift panels added later or that it is a non-EU 2003-2005 car (the EU 156 had the 2.0JTS from 2002).

A check on the chassis number would give the exact build date.

The chassis no is ZAR93200000283448 with an engine no of AR323104439402.
My local MOT station couldn't help with the emissions as they said that their machine only registers it as a pass or fail.
Any ideas where I could get the CO2 levels checked out please?

That was built on 30th March 2005.

Edit:
If it does really measure 244g/km, the late registration has moved it from the £295/year band K to the £500/year band L.

MOT emissions testing is for CO not CO2.
So they wouldn't be able to help.
