Can anyone advise me how much I should have to pay to get my car registered in France as I was at the Prefecture today attempting to get my car registered.
It is a 1900cc diesel vauxhall zafira, first registered in April 2010 and I bought it in Sept 2011.
Had all the relevant paperwork such as certificate of conformity and a form from the tax/treasurer office to say no tax should be paid. The woman behind the desk seemed to be having great trouble entering info into the computer then finally said I needed to pay 575 euros! Pourqoui? (Why?) I asked as I was a little shocked by the excessive amount and by then I had already decided she did not really know what she was doing. She got other staff involved and still no other figure given. After 30 minutes of this I decided I was not going to be ripped off so easily and just grabbed all the paperwork off the desk and bid my farewell! (Probably followed by a few of the cleaner expletives on the way out)
I believe they use the CO2 and year of manufacture to do the alculation.
Can anyone tell me what they paid for vehicles with similar engine size?
I did a calculation on a website and it said I should have been charged 240 euros.
As the vehicle emissions are quite low.
Thanks for any responses
