I had a long stay in ICU and during that time my wife bought the car.
So the dealer told me fibs when he said I just need to inform the DVLA.
Which then raises the point of do you want to keep it (and the subsequent risk when you come to sell it) or do you want to return it - in which case is there anything in the ad that mis-represented it as £30 VED
You know it was imported from a long way outside Europe.
Nobody's modified it and put in a different engine. It has the same engine it left the factory with...
Because it's not to European spec, it doesn't have an official CO2 figure so it can't be taxed on it. It's not as simple as "All 2015 1.2TSI 105PS Golf Estates are 117g so £30 tax". If it did have, then DVLA would have taken that from the certificate of compliance or foreign paperwork when it was imported and registered here, and it would be £30 or £135 or whatever.
