Everything is expensive here. The government seems to have forgotten that they made us all poor a few years ago.

I'm not feeling the sympathy here.

It is a pretty steep amount for an annual road tax.

Oh I'm sympathetic alright. Have you seen the state of Irish roads*? Glad we had a hire car when we went over there.

* Even worse than those in England and that's saying summat.

No, it has the 2L TFSI from the GTI. Ironically the 2L diesel would cost half that amount.
