          Thought i might have read that wrong. so the £550 is for the first year when you buy a car in that band from 2010 then.

              senseless tax from a blind government (i.e. they don't see anything except spend spend spend and let future taxes rip loose)

                will that not just completely put people off buying new cars?

                  And hopefully after 2010 Mr Brown and Mr Darling will be gone and we will have sensible car tax after that.

                    The charge is only on big cars, but its to try make you go out and by a 1.0 micra instead as it has low tax and no penalty tax when you first buy it!

                      Correct it's what they call "Showroom tax"

                        and the Victorian "Rich - Poor divide" starts again

                        The rich can destroy the Ozone but we're not aloud......how unfair is that

                          Does this apply only if its brand new or does it include second hand as well??

                            thought it was to go to £300 from april 2009 but it`s thats now changed to £215 i`m happy with that , as for the other tax it`s on new cars from showroom but i think dealers will allow for that when you px your old car , wouldn`t worry to much about it yet as things could change before 2100
