    However it's not particularly good looking either.
    as you know, I don't live in the real world. (And there is no comparable 207 to the tax-exempt C3 version).

    yes, there is one here as well, but with 99 grams it does not meet the government requirements for tax exemption, it is therefore 2000 euro more expensive than the C3 and you still have to pay almost 100 euro a month for road tax.

    I like the looks of the DS3. I'd have one.

    I thought they were both homolgated with the same figures.

    93 gram for the C3, obviously this minute 6 grams makes all the difference. If the government wants to introduce silly rules, you might as well use them.

    I am all in favour of less road tax for less polluting cars. However the current system has some anomalies

    DS3's are just hitting the dealerships around my parts. They look really tall for what they are. and overwrought.
