Well, I only actually own the blue one. Silver one is on "commerce plates" which means most taxes and such have been withdrawn. In return I can only use it for work.

I was offered another job but my boss didn't want to let me go. So....I suggested he set me up with a real car, instead of the Toyota he had in mind. :cool:

Normal "white plates" like those on my car are levied a 180% "registration fee"... which is followed by a 25% VAT.

The Forester plates are yellow and the reg. fee is only 30% and the VAT is 0% ! The rear seats have been removed and replaced with a flat carpeted load bay. Windows are tinted 90% black.

How do you like that?

Immigrate into the USA so you don't have to pay for those ridiculous taxes and VATs.

Both of them are very nice, but it sucks having to pay that much for tags.

Forgive me but I don't understand 180% of what 25% of what, it can't possibly be the entire cost of the car or who would drive, so what are those percentages pertaining to?
