I just received my road tax renewal form this morning and they are asking £175 for 12 months. I could have sworn that last years was only £125, but I need to double check tonight.

What are you paying?

S2 111S would have been £165 last year I think.

£225 for mine as it's pre-2001, over 1549cc.

£270 for mine. 208g/km. Fairly sure that in practice it uses less fuel (and emits less CO2) than a lot of other cars with nominally lower CO2 figures would if used the same way.

The S2 111S is the lowest tax of all the Elises other than the 1.6.

To be honest it wasn't something I looked into when I bought it. I just assumed that it would be less than my 2.5l BMW due to the engine size and it being post 2001.

Crazy thing is my BMW will pass a cat test but it does not run cat's.

Letter for my S2 111S came through last month, said £170. Went online and it had already gone upto £175. Still better then the £465 for the 350Z before that.
