So I gave the car the once over and couldn't see anything glaringly obvious, so I booked the car in for mot with a week to run on the current one, and left it with the garage at their mercy, bearing in mind its approaching 14 years old, and I have never moted this car before having only owned for 9 months and not spent a penny on it mechanically in this time . Popped around the testing station on the way home from work and it had passed straight through with no advisories. Now I am left thinking do I change it for a newer S-type and sell this while it has a full new mot? Or keep it another year and try again to sort the rattling heat shields out?

My opinion Keith is better the devil you know, and your car looks good. Tax will be higher on newer ones as well I think 😉

Only on petrol models from 21st (I think) March 2006 onwards.

Better the devil you know but a car with a full mot is worth more that one with 6 mths.

Not sure re the tax, my sister pays c£515 for her 2.7D Discovery, same engine as the S-Type and we only pay £235 for our older TD5 and £295 for our S-Type which is after 01 but before the new CO2 regs came in...

My sisters Disco is newer still, and being that production of the S-Type finished in 2008, I guess all the later ones are within the £295 tax band?

No. My S would be in tax band M but because it was registered before 23st March 2006 it drops back into group K and costs £295.

Read the note below the table.
