    Vehicle tax reminder through the post today, due 01st February 2019

    As previously mentioned, as service, M.o.t tax AND warranty all came due this time of year I opted for 6 months this time to break things up a little. She's going in to the garage in 12 days time for outstanding issues as posted earlier. I'm looking to take out the extended warranty at that time

    On starting the car this morning I was surprised to see "Smart key - low battery" warning message, but then I guess 3 years and with all the smart key functions etc, it's probably about due for replacement.

    It's another thing to add to the list for when the car goes in next week.....

    That said I had to call and change the appointment slightly, FIL died a few days ago and Tress called today to say the date was fixed for the 17th, I managed to get it in for the day after due to the circumstances

    Tress has asked that we use her on the day along with the X type as a 2nd and 3rd car so Wed 16th will be a busy day getting them ready

    Sorry to hear about the FIL.

    For information, I got the battery low warning message with my smart key just after three years too.

    What date is it valid until, then?

    ... Oh, I see - December - how is the appeal to the DMV going?

    My tax demand came through for 31 January which was a bit of a surprise as I bought - and taxed - it in early February, but then I realised that you only get part months if you buy it half way through (but no discount - grrr!). Oh well, unexpected or not, the bill is now paid and it is legal for another year. Where did the year go, I ask myself.
