I've already used the forums, but want to introduce myself.
I'm Chris, from Denmark.Being an IT guy, with a passion for Fords, I've owned several fords from a mk4 escort, mk1 mondeo, mk2 mondeo and recently a mk3 mondeo.
I've traded the Mondeo to a C-max 1,6 TDCi, as I needed more space in the boot (mondeo was a 4 door, C-max is a 2 seater-van)
I do still have a mk2 mondy in the driveway which i hope to fix, as its currently a non-runner..
Denmark has some of the highest car-taxation-rates in the world. For instance, this particular c-max would have cost £35.000 from new, if it had rear seats.Due to it be registered as a van, the price was less than half. - Currently, a c-max like mine (2004/5), would cost £5-8000..
Anual taxes are £1000..
One day (when/if I need it) I to pay the tax (£4000, as the cars old and used) that allows me to fit rear seats. I guess I'm on the lookout for rear seats in the same design as the ones in front.
It's my first Diesel-car, so I hope that I wont get too much grief with it.. :-)
