Showroom Tax

Hi all,

We should be collecting the Q5 in June, build wk was wk 20. When we're picking it up will the dealers ask us to pay the extra road tax, ie the showroom tax? We're getting the 2.0 TDI 170ps.

Does the on the road price include the new tax? Or is it priced up with the normal yearly road tax figure of ?180. I hope im right in saying the showroom tax in ?250. So will the dealer be insisting we pay the ?70 difference to them?

Also, if VAT rises to 20% in the June budget, will audi be asking us to pay the increased rite straight away? I'm hoping ours will arrive before the VAT goes up so it wont apply, but if not its going to hike the price by nearly ?1000.

Many thanks

Mine has the showroom tax included, however the MY2011 has decreased in raod tax and showroom tax so i'm due a rebate!!!

With regards to the VAT rise if it comes in we are all stuffed as we have no choice to pay it.

I asked about paying early and was told its not possible as they cannt raise the invoice until the chassis number and reg plate are allocated, and the car MUST be in the country as well, so no pre-payment to avoid the VAT rise (if and when it happens)

Simon have been told by the dealer that we are protected against the rise so i wont be paying anymore,have it in writing as well.
