    Hi guys

    When i go on the VRT calculator, and i enter in the CO2 emissions, say for example 123g/km - its says the value is too high and it won't accept it? It accepts it if i convert to kg but the ads i am looking at always express as g/km and not kg?

    TIA

    Are you definitely entering Co2 and not NoX

    If you’re entering a different co2 value, are you certain that that variant isn’t listed elsewhere?

    I bet you're entering co2 instead of nox, find the nox value from the seller or from somewhere like emissionsfinder.com

    Co2 Can’t be entered manually. The Co2 is automatically selected based on the make/model/variant you chose.

    Your entering Co2 into the Nox section

    You can manually recalculate by putting a different Co2 value in.

    Heya, Im trying to calculate the VRT from an MX5 first registered in Japan, but it is not on the drop down list. Id expect to see Roadster.
    Any ideas?

    If its not on the system then you just have to buy the car and hope for the best unfortunately

    Just do VRT for a non Japanese model one.
    Watch out as there are lots of variants.

    Do you know the Co2 figure for the car? Is it on uk plates now or Japanese?

    They seem to be going easy on MX5 values

    Yeah prices of them are going up :-(
    I'll see if I can get the nox value. I'm looking at the auction sites in Japan. Just seeing if it's worth it. (I think it would be)
    Looking for a 2nd gen NR-A model

    Most nox will be is €600. You have no chance of getting a nox value on an individual JDM car so budget for €600.

    Budget for VAT and import tax as well.
