I have 2 basically identical 2007 c320s both registered august 2007
Vin numbers approx 1500 apart
However emmisions stated on the v5 are different which makes one £30 a year more expensive than the other
Anybody know why this is the case ?

It does seem unusual.
One possible explanation could be that one of the cars has been factory fitted with larger wheels and tyres which nudges it over into the next band.

Are the Euro Emissions classes identical on your Certificate of Conformity docs and the emissions listed on your V5 Docs identical?

It is usually down to the size of wheel and tyre fitted - smaller wheels/tyres = less emissions on the CofC.

Funny thing, is that if the car was delivered on small wheels then huge alloys fitted by the dealer then the lower emissions figure would be on the CofC and it would be legal even though the emissions would no longer match those as tested...

Check the VIN's and compare. They should show the wheels / tyre sizes assigned.

That's odd!
I'd have thought a bigger rolling circumference would have lower emissions due to less engine revs to travel the same distance?
I can't get my poor old brain around that one :confused::oops:

Bigger wheels normally also means wider tyres, therefore larger contact patch and rolling resistance

Normally the circumference is the same, they’re just wider with much smaller sidewalls.
This gives higher rolling resistance and higher emissions
