    Post up the vin number and we can get you a data card which will state it.... ( or you can do yourself on one of the links in the general section). Suspect it’s EU5

    Yes I have checked that website and it's saying that my car is below the standard to be exempted, and i know that My car is almost new, it's so not fair that they are just basing it on number of years.

    Do you have one of the below in your car or paperwork for the car?

    That will have the details you require

    For diesel cars to be exempted, it needs to be atleast Euro6 I think :-(

    From the ulez site

    Enforcement of the ULEZ will be based on the declared emissions of the vehicle rather than the age.

    Diesel cars that meet the standards are generally those registered with the DVLA after September 2015


    So your nearly new? (6 years old) Diesel looks like it is not
    compliant Im afraid.

    Odds are the website is correct . No it's not fair at all , but the government's job is to squeeze you for all the money they can , and they are very well practised at it .

    I was reading this below, what do they mean when they said *some manufacturers may have made vehicles to a higher emissions standard that it was mandatory at time? Like some vehicles may show higher emission on record but its in reality it's not. So then, so they can also be exempted?

    How to check your vehicle's emissions standard

    To see if you'll have to pay the ULEZ charge, you need to check your vehicle's European emissions standard. In most cases this is determined by how old your car is, as follows:
    • Euro 1 - applies to all new registrations after 31 Dec 1992
    • Euro 2 - all new registrations after 1 Jan 1997
    • Euro 3 - all new registrations after 1 Jan 2001
    • Euro 4 - all new registrations after 1 Jan 2006
    • Euro 5 - all new registrations after 1 Jan 2011
    • Euro 6 - all new registrations after 1 Sept 2015
    However some manufacturers may have made vehicles to a higher emissions standard than was mandatory at the time.

    The
    ULEZ uses this site to define whether it applies or not :-
    https://carfueldata.vehicle-certification-agency.gov.uk/search-new-or-used-cars.aspx
    They use the results from this site irrespective of what you or the cars docs say !

    These emission zones are only is certain city centre's. If you are not driving in there regularly I don't see it as an issue.
    I am not changing my E350CDI to a petrol version which will cost me at least another £400 in fuel a year.

    What does "you are not subject to the ULEZ" mean? My SL500 and Audi S5 both give that result on the website so are they both exempt from any charges?
