    I was reading through the discussions earlier about road tax, For all the UK'ers how much are you paying for a year's road tax?

    Quite curious to see how many newer cars you're picking up are lower brackets :) The aygo only farts out the odd bit of CO2 so it's zero road tax :D which considering my insurance quote of £1200 for the year is a bit of a godsend :)

    £125 per year for my 1998 Seat Arosa MPI. It has no tricks fitted of any kind. Not even a working radio-cassette :D

    If I want to listen to music, I'll use my phone and headphones. But generally I just tend to not fancy listening to music while driving. Which is strange, because I have it on in the background all the time at home.

    I'd go nuts if I didn't have a sound system in my car, especially the times I drive those 10 hours to get up north to my family. Having headphones on for that long would be very uncomfortable towards the end.

    Back in 2002 I had an old wreck of an Opel Kadett Caravan for a while, without any kind of radio or sound system, and I was gonna go for a 6 hour drive once. I went to buy a a cheap portable CD-player just to have something to keep me company. Back then there were at best phones with FM radio but no RDS so it would have been a pain to keep searching for stations along the way.

    Well it's been a busy day today, And I have decided to trade in my Vauxhall Vectra I bought only six months ago. It's turned out to be on of those problematic cars and need to get shut of it before it becomes to serious...

    Already cost me £500 for a new Clutch and £100 for a new coil to be replaced. And is developing a cpu problem...

    So I have this awaiting for collection on wed of next week.

    A 1.8 Nissan Primera SX. 17" wheels Inbuilt Sat Navigation and rear parking camera which is rather quirky...

    EDIT: This is the Dashboard that will certainly take little time to get used to... Never driven a car that has the speedometer in the center of the dashboard.
