    Default daft Qn for 2.2 exterior pack Tax

    Hi,

    a quick look at Parkers says (from 2010) tax on a 2.2 SRi will be £210,
    the exterior pack 2.2 SRi is £270....what exactly is the ext. pack to bump up the tax ? I thought it was just the 19" alloys, but I have seen 2.2's advertised with the pack that look "standard" (no snowflakes etc)

    It's because of the alloys. The bigger wheels cause a higher emissions reading, so if the car was specced as new with the 19s, the V5 will have the higher emissions reading compared to one without the 19s.

    However buying one without the 19s and adding them yourself won't affect the emissions rating as it's already on the V5.

    aah, so an extra inch on every corner tips the balance! regarding the exterior pack, is anything else included apart from the alloys?

    Yep, the pack includes things like spoilers, splitters etc - what exact configuration I don't know as there are different exterior packs available - XP1, XP2 etc. and I'm not up to speed on all the differences with having a Signum and different kit. Somebody who's got a kit, or knows about them, should hopefully be along shortly to help.
