Car tax and imported cars?
On reading on some of the comments regarding car road tax I came across mention that on an imported car the first registration date for the calculation of road tax was the date that it was registered in the UK.

I own a 1992 Mazda Eunos that was imported from Japan in May 2006 and am paying the rate for a car registered in the UK in 1992 - £220 per year is this correct?

If the build date is not known and the CO2 is not on official EC records, then it it based on the date of importation.
