White Seat Ecomotive 1.4 TDi car
Had to renew my car tax this month and they said that I would be entered into a prize draw to win a Seat car if I renewed it on the internet rather than going to the Post Office. However, the competition is actually open to anyone, no purchase necessary, if you follow the link. I don't know anything about this particular car, but a car's a car at the end of the day, and I'm sure you could sell it if you won and didn't want it.
The literature I received with my tax disc application says that there's three cars to be won this month.
