why is that tax on my 172 0nly £55

  audi a6 3.0tdi
Ive bought a mk1 172 its on a y plate and the tax disk says £55 this can not be right. how much does everyone else pay? all my old cars have been far more expensive than this.

its not a fake disk got the original reciept from the post office. only thing i can think of is that the garage has some dodgy dealings with that post office. might go back there next time and hope for the best.

probably just a mix up. shame really. thanks everyone at least now i know i have to pay twice that much cheers:(

Look at the co2 figure on the v5 document. A 'Y' plate car tax is based on this, and it should be 189g/km.

£55 puts you in band C, so less than 150g/km
Could be an error with the car being registered with the DVLA as the incorrect model? i.e. DVLA think it's actually a 1.2???

According to a lot of insurance company's websites, my 172 is actually a Megane 225 (inputting my registration used to bring up the incorrect details)
Y reg will be before it went on co2 and will be on engine size or something.

Anyways it'll be 195 for a year or 96odd for 6 months (just taxed mine).

had the car hpi checked before buying it, one owner from new no crashes definately a 172. might put 1.2 badges on and hope for the best. lol

I refused to buy 6 months. Why the f**k is it £15 more expensive than the equivilent if you bought 12 months? Tossers.
