Couldn't keep away from having a truck so been and bought what used to be called a "p r a m" on here  Grin Grin 55 plate new shape elegance auto in blue. I'm assuming it is one of the first off the line. How things have changed, sat nav screen, electric heated seat, roof mounted DVD player for the back. Thought I had got into a Range Rover by mistake LOL

Couple of Q's Just tried to tax it and it comes up 225 per year, I looked it up and as it was registered before 31 Dec 2006 and is a Euro 4 compliant engine (from everything I have read, please correct me if not) it should only be 140. Any one in the same boat had experience with this?

I have found a black box with some wires coming out of it mounted to the battery tray. Is this the fabled ralliart power upgrade box?
Thanks in advance and a pic of the new baby below.

Checked the tables on the dvla site and it should be 140. Rang dvla, said send V5 with a covering letter and they will assess it. I asked how they could have missed it and woman said "it will be whoever first registered it ticking the wrong box" bet a weeks wages if the wrong box was ticked the other way they would have picked it straight away!!!! As I havent got the V5 yet I had to tax it at the rate they say and if my claim is upheld they will rebate a whole calendar month, generous of them  Shocked Will keep the forum updated as this must be rife!

Thanks g6wgz, where would the second box be located? not the sort of thing I like to tinker with but useful to know where and what stuff is  Smiley
