He (gorman) has already lost on one issue with his f**king light bulbs trying to stop the sale of the old bulb and every house hold to have energy bulbs but every eu country had to have that law as well. So I hope he lose this battle aswell but I doubt it :cry:

Any car registered in Ireland on or after 1st July 2008* will be subject to the new VRT and Road Tax schemes - both designed to make cars which produce less carbon per km travelled cheaper. (Small Diesel Engines, Hybrids, etc)

New VRT:

Band A 0 - 120g 14%
Band B 121 - 140g 16%
Band C 141 - 155g 20%
Band D 156 - 170g 24%
Band E 171 - 190 g 28%
Band F 191 - 225g 32%
Band G 226g and over 36%

New Road Tax:

Band A (under 120 grams per km) - €100.
Band B (121-140 grams perkm) - €150.
Band C (141-155 grams per km) - € 290.
Band D (156-170 grams per km) - €430.
Band E (171-190 grams per km) -€ 600.
Band F (191-225 grams per km) - €1,000.
Band G, the top band -€2,000, reflecting CO2 emissions of over 225grams per km.

* This means that new registrations or imports into Ireland after the 1st July 2008 will be subject to the new VRT and Road Tax schemes, in the case of imports this is the case irrespective of the date of orignal registration in the country of origin.


So for us:

cc 1,901 to 2,000 - now €539, renewing after 1st Feb €590

Well, I recon hang on to what you have until a hybrid sport is brought into production. :)

The gs450h engine is a band E at 186 g/km CO2. €600 a year is not bad for a 3.5l engine!

I was told that the engine in the altezza should have less emissions than the IS200 because the IS has a 6-cylinder engine. I think that must be wrong though because if you have more horsepower you'd surely have higher emissions!

Not strictly true, you could have a more efficient engine. I doubt though that the BEAMS engine would be so much more efficient as to supply greater power and lower emissions.

If the CO2 figures for the Altezza is not available, how are the Revenue going to determine them? They'd hardly buy one and run tests on it?

im sure they will pull a factory figure from somewhere. Remember lads most of us on here will just see a small 11% increase in tax, its people that register theirs after July that pay tax based on emissions

So basically, Altezza's, Evo's, Subaru's, Supra's et al will not be imported after July because they'll have become too expensive... or maybe the importers will drop their prices (ya rite :roll: )
As Dan said, the Gov. will find a number somewhere and multiply it, then add a bit on for good measure, and it'll be take it or piss off..
They know that these measures won't affect their BMW and Mercedes buddies (sure they've all got helicopters now anyway). They want our cars off the roads so that they can say to the E.U. they are serious about cutting emissions.. and the Greens are only too willing to do it :evil:

everyone knows how much the government likes their vrt profits, maybe the probable huge reduction in second hand imports will leave them out of pocket enough to rethink this whole band g b****
