    Well, I've just re-taxed my car for how ever long the weather holds out. Maybe for 2 months or maybe longer. I don't have to use it through the winter now but I have in the past.
    One thing will feel strange though, after Wednesday, driving without a tax disc in the windscreen after 41 years will take a bit of getting used to.
    How long before the VW gets the cobwebs blown off?:)

    I expect a lot of people will leave the old tax disc in for a while , they will just forget to take it out as it's always been their , I'm taking mine out tuesday night when I finish work ( will put a piece of paper in the car to remind me ) when I go out in the car wednesday I'm going to look to see how many cars still display their discs ;)

    I will still have to display my work sticker :(
    Would be lovely to have a clear screen , but if I took that off as well , I'd get a parking ticket :(
    I just know I'd forget to put it on the screen when I went into work , maybe I'm getting old and forgetful =))

    was going to take mine out but decided to leave it in and use it to put car parking tickets in to save losing down the front of the dash
