    Today I got a little bored and found this on VCA!

    Right I was a little bored today so I decided to have a look at the tax bands and also average running costs (petrol wise) between a few of the factory performance cars like the Astra VXR, Focus ST, Seat Leon 2.0 TFSI, they all have around 200-250ps, but anyways heres a few pics of the reports, kinda mad like,

    VXR




    Focus ST



    Leon 2lt TFSI



    Kinda mad like, but was also looking at the tax bands and comparing them to what we have to pay over here in Ireland and its totally mental, like my own car is a 1.6 16V astra cab and Im paying €445 a year for my road tax, and that has just worked out after renewing my insurance yest, to be €20 less than my insurance!! total bloody ripoff!! whats your thoughts? oh yeah and another thing if I wanted to own one of these 3 cars I would be paying €1050 a year just on road tax!! Sorry had to have a bit of a rant!! hahah

    ps, for people that dont know, the tax on a VXR is £215 a year, focus ST is £215 and the Seat is £215. not bloody fair! haha

    just read it again and ya meant the one at the bottom? oh if you go into personalization (same place where u change your background) and click window color and appearance it comes up then, not sure on XP, or 7, am using Vista!
