I've just got a cracking deal on a brand new VW Golf TDi. Only £2,000!

The only downside is the road tax is £25,000 a year...

Apparently VW bosses are quite concerned about the new law in the UK that came into force today regarding smoking in cars with an under 18 yr old present.
I'm not sure they have quite understood it :eusa-think:
