I'm just thinking that mine is a 53 reg just out of warranty, so 3 Years warranty does sound attractive to me!
If it could be got for less than 30k then it has got to be a bargain!

I didnt then realise that they wanted shot by the end of the month!
As I already have a car that I am very happy with I can afford to be cheeky!

That still won't avoid having to pay VRT , it might lessen the amount , and road tax will cost 2000 euro a year , until they incress that . Last year when i paid the VRT on the wifes MR2 it cost 1000 euro and I only paid 1200 pound for it

I thought EU law means that if you import a car that is more than 6 months old from another country, no further tax is payable .. shame

That could well be true but it has changed noting fir us here , VRT makes too much money for the goverment each year for them the ever scrap it . When you consider that the price of a 220 cdi droped by 16000 euro last year when the bands where changed to follow co2 ratings instead of engine cc , this ment that the VRT on a 220 cdi droped from 32% down to 16%
