Don't shoot me but ......
If you can slosh out £44900 then the £490 pa ain't gonna hurt you too much
With the current price of cars as they are, and all the stupid lease deals, it will push most cars over 50k shortly anyway. I wouldn't mind except the 'Road Tax' is a general tax, very little to do with roads, or at least not round here anyway. They are a mess to say the least. RIP cheap motoring
Thanks for your support, David!! I didn't slosh out £44900! I lease it!!

Erm, you still pay it, it's just included in the lease cost!

Doesn't your lease cost include the road tax (I know, I know: VED)? They usually do.
If not, didn't it occur to you to check how much it would be?
Slightly O/T, but a while back there was a rule that said if your car had a capacity greater than 3.5l and registered after March? 2005 then you paid a higher VED (£585?) than if it was registered before that date. Has that gone out of the window now? Couldn't find it on the Gov website.
#17 - It was based on CO2 emissions not engine size and still applies. https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-tax-rate-tables/rates-for-cars-registered-on-or-after-1-march-2001
The CO2 based first year rate on my GR Yaris is £895, all the ones getting flipped only get refunded the amount of the second year onwards tax.
Personally I'd abolish the luxury car tax and slap it all on caravans.
