    Ultra Low Emissions Zone and MK7 GT engines

    London introduces the ULEZ on April 09 and from that date only Euro 6 diesels will be allowed entry into central London without paying a 12 per day penalty. Other UK cities will follow over the next 2/3 years. I was surprised and angry to just discover that my 2.0 GT (150PS) registered 01 July 15 is only Euro 5. It became illegal to sell new vehicles that were not Euro 6 compliant after 01 September 2015. I think it's shocking that VW were still selling Euro 5 cars so late. This will of course apply to other 2015 VW Group TDI models. This is the 2nd time VW emissions have cost me money.

    It will be EU5plus but It was not just VW, it is something ALL manufacturers did and I have been screaming about it for years now, even whilst non EU6 cars were still being sold. Very soon there will be an outpouring of anger over this, if it wasn’t for a certain “other” current issue dominating the news it would already be a national scandal.

    A quick check is a 65 plate should be OK.

    Yes, it is all those with EU4 and 5 DPF cars who have had them and their EGR valves removed, shame on them!

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    You can’t argue with the tailpipes of EU4 and EU5 cars
