Default UK People: M2 old road tax vs new road tax difference?

UK People - anyone know off the top of the their heads how much extra tax an LCI model is going to incur over 5 years vs non LCI (I appreciate their might be some LCI's that just fall into the old tax system, but excluding them)? Trying to work out if, given the option of a late 2016 or early 2017, fancier lights is worth paying the extra for. Also, I'm not up these regs - does buying a car that falls into the new system mean that it will annually incur greater costs vs a car that is in the old system, therefore making it a less attractive proposition when I come to sell? Thanks for anyone who can help!

Pretty sure no LCI cars fell under the old system. Mine would've been one of the last registered in March under the old system and it's not LCI.

Unless I misread the paperwork, the bigger difference is between DCT and Manual cars under the new regime.

DCT appears to be cheaper as far as Road a Tax is concerned.

So Iím expecting to wince a bit come September...

Apart from the first year tax on a brand new car there is now no difference between manual and dct as emissions are no longer a factor. The are both £450 pa for years 2 to 6 and £140 a year thereafter.

Ah? Well, I look forward to being massively condescending to any fellow M2 owners who can’t change gear without assistance then.

Wow, £450 vs £240 is a big % increase, good to know

And anyone considering a pre reg needs to take into account that advertised prices do not include road tax but new list does so the saving to list £450 less, or around 1% less discount rate.

Good point Ken - I clocked that when I bought my pre reg last week but with over £6.5 k off list with 6 miles on the clock it's still a great deal.

The £800 has already been paid if you buy pre-reg so your actually saving anothe £350 if you look at it that way.

Good point - never thought of it like that!
