What are the CO2 emissions on that?

If it's the one I've just been looking at on Parkers' then it prodcues 232 g/km and is in band K. By my reckoning that's:

2009/10
£215.00 - 12 months
£118.25 - 6 months

2010/11
£245 - per year (can't see a 6 month rate)

yes its true,but not on all roads out of town ,when i take my dog out for a walk up towards the mountain we often do 125mph and hes ok with it, but dont be fooled cos if mr plod is having a bad day or some old guy is not happy with your speed the old bill will call at your house for a chat !!!

last tt my son got the new mgtf500 in orange with black wheels etc so he thought he was a bit of a player and asked me if i was up for a little race,!!!just to see if the old mans fozzy was still the quickest car on the drive:) , it took me a while to think about it(1 second)and off we went!! Of course the forester was the quickest so he asked if he could go first on the way home so being completely irresponsible i said yes but told him that the police would be at the bottom of the mountain road where the speed limit goes back to 40 mph and to make sure he was doing 40 before he hit the sign.......73 mph in that 40 zone got him £350 fine and 3 points and yes of course it was my fault,so its ok going fast here as long as you know were the limits are ....
