    Well as we all know when you put a car up for sale you should start with the price that you are prepared to come down from, unlike houses its difficult to gazump car prices.....

    Yes, I hadn't realised that before I owned one, but luckily I didn't want a Q in the first place so (as of last year) have a Tax and MOT exempt 'T' suffix. Saves £265 per annum on road tax.

    Very nice example , especially if the overdrive works. The seats look very comfortable.
    Does anyone know what car they originate from?

    So tell me, is the 40 years for tax exemption from the date of the car being completed and first registered, or from the date of the engine?

    This roadster is a '93 chassis so it would still have at least 13 years to go unless its from the MG engine, which would be older.

    I have an 89 engine in mine; the chassis is a mid nineties, and it was completed and registered in 2008

    So in 2029....or 2035....or 2048......I should be tax free?.....Hmm , I'll be...how old??!!!!

    Are you saying that a Q reg is tax free 40 yrs after registration?
