this is sort of what i was saying in post #31 and i know in the back deep deep back of my mind i could live without my car and share the mrs car but i will pay the price cause i love driving a quick carThe idea of the government wanting us to move to smaller, greener cars through heavy taxing is something of a myth in my opinion. They know that they can get away with charging the driving public because they will pay the extortionate amounts. We're already taxed so heavily through the petrol we pay, parking and congestion charges, this 'low emission' nonsense is just another way of extracting more money out of us.
Its a cost/benefit thing at the end of the day - the income reduction incurred by the government from drivers who do move to smaller cars will easily be offset by the drivers who'll bite the bullet and pay continue paying the criminally hiked amounts.
Yep, you're like many of us who can live without our nice fast cars but will pay more for the pleasure of having one. I was driving a 1.2 Clio for 5 years before I got this car, it's the first truly quick car I've ever owned and I thoroughly enjoy it even though my motoring cost has increased considerably.this is sort of what i was saying in post #31 and i know in the back deep deep back of my mind i could live without my car and share the mrs car but i will pay the price cause i love driving a quick car
