How can the same car have a different price all over Europe?
Just 10 years ago, UK car buyers were being ripped off. Many were shelling out thousands more for their cars than buyers in continental Europe.

The situation improved when the Department for Trade and Industry (DTI) got involved and called for a 10% cut in UK prices.

This put everything back on an even keel. Prices levelled and the import market shrank from 122,000 in 2002 to 34,000 in 2004.

Does that equality still persist in 2008, or have UK prices sneaked up again? We had to find out.
