... and it was CHEAPER than I thought. Only £250. For some reason I thought it should be £275 :)

Shocking that is! My 52 Plate Diesel Manual is £175 ? How can they justify a £75 difference between a Manual and a Automatic? The Emissions are not that different are they?

Thats almost as much for a 2.0l V6 Disc or a 2.5l V6 Disc and surely they produce far more Emmissions?

Funnily enough, When I was contemplating swapping out the Tourer for a Saloon, I started checking Tax Disc prices as part of my list to look for. How sad is that? £220 for a 1999 / 2000 2.0l / 2.5l compared to up to £270 for a later model!

Yes diesels produce less emissions, but because they are 'dirtier' in other ways they are penalised.

Specifically they are alleged to produce more particulates (that's not actually smoke, but small invisible particles) although some petrols are actually worse. That's how it was justified.
