Welcome LMose, welcome to the circus, and do I believe you are one of the Mato Brown brigade (both of us) ? Can't wait to see the pictures. I love mine. You won't be disappointed.

You will get used to Tell.

I don't think anyone is "after Tell"

It may look like that but he is the most prolific poster so appears more often

Certainly as far as I'm concerned it's all harmless

It is a great choice of car.
Hope the next 2 weeks go quickly for you

In many EU countries there is an initial registration tax. There is one in the UK, but I think it is only about £45 so not really significant.

In Spain there is a similar tax which used to be based on engine size, but now it is based on CO2 emissions. On any car with less than 120g it is zero, for the next band it is 4.75%. That is quite significant. On real "gas guzzlers" it is 14.75%.

In Denmark, I understand that it is over 60%. That is a massive amount! It gets included in the price so it is not so obvious. I only came across this when an expat here in Spain said he had bought his car in Denmarks as, because of this huge tax, the manufacturers keep the base price as low as they can to maximise sales. If you buy for export, you don't pay the tax, so what you get is a good deal!

I must admit, €3800 is a lot for leather, even allowing for the 60% tax.
