Free for now, no doubt that our gracious government will change it at some point when everyone starts buying economic cars and the treasury needs the funds to give to the Indian space program.

That's what they did here in Holland.

I bought the car in july 2013 and didn't have to pay tax that year. Too many people were buying these eco cars so they changed things up. Only the super eco are free from tax now (since beginning 2014)

edit: with eco I mean low in emissions

Just like the price of diesel went up to counter act the amount of people buying diesel cars.

Nickyboy regarding the problem on the drivers side I think I have that problem, when ever I turn my engine off after about 2 or three minutes I hear this really strange noise I'm trying explain the noise but I can't 😂, it's like a groining noise...? I have the zetec s ecoboost 63 plate.

Picked up me zs over a week ago and love it, million times better than my 62 plate fiesta 1.25.....im getting about 42mpg. is it normal to have a second or so lag when putting my foot down under 2000 rpm? first car with a turbo so havent a clue.

That lag of the turbo is perfectly normal at low revs. It is noticeable when the turbo is not spooled-up. You will get used to it quite quickly... You will probably find that you will adjust your driving style ever so slightly to get the most out of the car when coming from an NA to a Turbo.
