    Innerestingly, I checked my car against the ULEZ rulez a while back and it would seem that an 04 350z is exempt from the fee

    From October this year only fully electric vehicles will be exempt, so make the most of it.
    I design idiot proof software. Trouble is, they keep making better idiots.

      Not true. You can check your vehicle here:

      https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/ult...ulez-expansion

      The current ULEZ emissions standards will continue:
      • Euro 3 (NOx) for motorcycles, mopeds, motorised tricycles and quadricycles
      • Euro 4 (NOx) for petrol cars, vans and other specialist vehicles (up to and including 3.5 tonnes gross vehicle weight) and minibuses (up to and including 5 tonnes)
      • Euro 6 (NOx and PM) for diesel cars, vans and other specialist vehicles (up to and including 3.5 tonnes) and minibuses (up to and including 5 tonnes)
      The majority of cars will be exempt.

          What is intriguing is why this particular stretch of road is exempt?

            That may well become true but _V_'s statement is incorrect.

              I think you will be surprised what happens after October this year.

                  This is where the progressives want all the owners of the dirty vehicles to get stuck - then they'll take out the first dirty car and the last and finally the slaughter will begin...

                  You've heard it on here first...

                    So is what you're claiming is the ULEZ will expand on the 25th and on the 26th they will change which cars are exempt from the fee, effective immediately?

                    I'm didn't say it won't ever happen but I don't think it'll change within a year. By saying "after October this year" anything that changes at any time between 25th October and the end of the known universe you can claim as being a prediction worthy of an "I told you so".

                    With such amazing powers of prediction and seeing the future, have you ever considered investing in the stock market?

                      Politicians (AKA Scumbags) love increasing taxes at start of their term.

                      Within a year it will become clear that ULEZ does not collect as much money as planned, in fact it might start losing money (what I think is going to happen in Bham) and a lot more cleaner vehicles will be included.

                      Frankly I think your '04 Nissan is toast...
