It's more expensive to tax per quarter or biannually, than if you pay all in one go for a year.

But in relative terms I think bang for buck the tax is cheap on these compared to say, an E46 M3 or 350z.

If the car is in storage for the winter, why would he tax it for a full year?

Absolutely - its one of the reasons I chose it myself at the time!

Its €394 for six months on the "normal" tax rate for pre-2008 - and then just declare it off the road for winter? (I'm just not seeing the benefit of "classic tax" here if its €400 for six months)


Now the classic insurance at €500 is fantastic... I paid €2400 for my first year on the S2000 when I had it

I think he means classic insurance with Autoline, and that he taxes it it for 6 mths for €400, which is more or less equal to €394.

Personally I don't see any reason why you shouldn't do it that way. If that's what suits you then fooken do it!

My daily is only €200 to tax for the year and I'm still tight enough to go quarterly !

Picked this up in July as my driving no longer suited a diesel. Very happy with it so far.

Toyota are right on the money with their new designs. Camry and Corolla look fantastic to me. Well wear, looks super in red.
