Discovery 5 Commercial Rear Seats

Recommended Posts

A pet hate of mine - putting seats in a commercial because then it isnt a commercial anymore! If you want seats in the back, just buy a normal version. I think if you buy a commercial and put seats in, you have to pay tax on it if it is within a certain time frame.

You missed my point - if you want a vehicle with a rear seat then just buy one like that.

Ah right, so it's a tax avoidance scheme!

 

And do you tell your insurance company that you have modified the vehicle???

And yet, when I fitted seat rails from a VW Sharan, so that I could use the 2 otherwise unused seats from the Ford Galaxy, into OUR Steyr Puch Van, I took it down to the DVLA in Coleraine and "fessed up" a woman came out, looked at it in the car park, and happliy taxed it a PLG.

But that was 15+ years ago.

Is the commercial tax less then??? I know I pay a damn sight more vehicle tax on my 1.3 scores van than I would on a car with the same engine!
