Will Ireland move to paperless motor tax?


Are you aware of any plans for Ireland to move to a paperless tax, NCT and insurance system like they use in the UK? To see all that paper hanging in the windscreens of modern automobiles is very last century and is simply clutter that does nothing to complement the great design of many modern automobiles.

I'd like a new automobile that is really comfortable.


I have just been reading Neil Briscoe's article (June 2016) about Citroen's new suspension system. I take it Neil wasn't too impressed. I have a 2003 Citroen C5 that is a fantastically comfortable automobile. It will have to be replaced sometime unfortunately. Because I have spine injuries I would need something that is the equivalent in terms of a smooth ride.

What do you think the chances are of finding same?
