Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I feel the need to buy a Range Rover, however the idea of paying around £1500 for the tax disk puts me off a bit.
    However a Man in the Pub told me that the govt is not going ahead with the punative green tax, due to the credit crunch and the need to keep Solihull off the dole.

    Is this true? Have any official announcements been made?

    (I searched ARRSE but came up blank.)
  2. Apparently so - it formed part of the Chancellor's pre budget report.

    Article from LandRover Owner magazine can be found here:


    Saves me a penny or two - at least until I fire up my Rangie and watch £20 of fuel burn off every minute!
  3. Lifes a bitch Nissan Terrano 3TDI road tax here in Spain 80 euros. If they put up the road tax here the government would be hung. Virtualy everone in the village has a 4/4 maybe cause the roads are sh*t
    Hang on 80 euros thats about £600 at todays exchange rates :eek:
