This year I will pay $109 for annual registration and personal property taxes. The amount goes down each year due to assessed value declining.

Normally $58.00 for licensing and that's it, but because the Dawg has personalized plates, I think that will be closer to $100.00 now. But that's it, no other taxes or fees here in Ohio, in my county at least. I know the Cleveland area has emissions testing, I'm pretty sure, I don't know if that costs or not. Insurance for the Dawg runs about $550.00 per year

In the UK we pay between about £200 - £500 on road fund licence, anything from about £150 to several thousand (depending upon age and driving record ) on insurance, and about £4 per gallon tax on fuel :eek:

The exchange rate is about £1 = $1.5634 at the moment.

Wooly, your abacus is misfiring. Unleaded is £1.28 per litre or £5.88 per gallon at the minute.

At roughly $3.20 a gallon here currently, I never look at the gas tax. The way prices flux around here, I was was paying $2.40 with my 0.30 cent discount a couple of weeks ago, I just go pump the gas and think what a racket! I still remember the days when I first started driving and it was 0.27 cent a gallon, and when the stations had "Gas Wars" I'd see it for 0.19 cent a gallon.

Yearly fee for a brand new SLK 55 is $10000 in Turkey.
That price is reduces by half of it every three years.

Mine is $600 becaus it is 1.8 Litre and 4 years old.

Also fuel is $2,5 (£1,36)per litre :)

I did not include insurance, but since I have other cars insured the SLK only added $185 per year for liability and collision/comprehensive on SLK. Worth every cent to drive SLK.

I think it's 78$ for registration here, and $40 for emissions every other year (which they don't actually test, they plug into the OBD2 port and look for major codes). I won't get into gas tax...

I'm in Florida and we pay roughly $114 a year to register our '02 SLK and '10 GLK and pay about $600 a year for insurance on both. We probably drop about $2400 a year on fuel for the two cars as well. SLK obviously gets better mileage and is driven less that the GLK, as well as has a smaller percentage of other cost due to its age.

Regarding insurance...oddly enough I pay a little less to cover the SLK than I do for our 06 (same year) Mazda3!
My SLK and my Honda Odyssey cost the same to insure, the Honda is a bit newer. My Acura MDX cost the most to insure, more than my 911, which doesn't make sense to me.

Well in the crazy country that Greece is where the government hunts every last euro it can find in our pockets, I pay 665 euros (almost 800dollars ) per year on annual registration because it's a 2 litter , another 360euros for annual insurance and the price of gasoline is 1,7euros per liter that's why I modified my slk to LPG which costs just 0,89euros per litter.

Also if my car was les than 10 years old I would have to pay extra 400eros per year as a luxury life tax... How cool is my country! Own a 10year 2 litter Mercedes and suddenly tou must be a Forbes wealthy guy living la vita LOCA...
