Moved from KC,MO in August. I'm on the north side of Boulder, about 1.5 miles from Niwot. Longtime Mud member.

Time to get CO plates.

Any estimate on what I'll expect to pay for plates for my 1996 LC?






Byron in Boulder
1996 LC, 225k, 861/862 w/ 1 in. spacers, factory locked, CDL, LEDs, ARB, JO1 IPFs, dual batteries, Engel 45. Kaymar-deer woods tested. Head Gasket done. SuperCharged.

Welcome!

That is my neck of the woods too. I'm out by 75th and Nelson, about 2 miles from Niwot.

I have a 95 LC and mine were about $70. It was $26 until Governor Critter slapped a ~$45 fee on everything with wheels. Not kidding.

Welcome to BoCo! All the Boulder Cruisers run on tofu and/or edamame, so you'll have to add that mod to your list. ;)

I also am new to this site and Boulder (though not the north side, canyon & 22nd). Thanks for the info on title/plate fees, they're not quite as bad as some people claimed they would be!

Thanks!

Thanks guys, I appreciate the info. Yes, I am adjusting having living in the midwest my whole life. Don't get me wrong, I love it out here. I am gong back to MO for week during deer season, but can't wait to get starting on hunting out here.

$616 for title and registration! Really?

If that's the case I may renew plates in MO. $48 for two years and about $200 in personal property tax.

On another note, so your profile and posts from mud don't transfer over to here? I had to register here seperately, or did I do something wrong?

The systems are not connected, although we do use the same basic software to run the forums. You're welcome to register with the same username if it's available (as many of us have done). We're big fans of ih8mud, but we're a separate entity. We have our own special brand of foolishness.

a) Just so you know: there is a law on the books against this, with a sizable fine. Back in the 90s, there was a big influx of Californians who moved to Colorado but maintained their car registration in CA. The state legislature passed a law stipulating that if you live here, you must register your car here within ____ days. At one time, there was a hotline where you could call in and report that your neighbor had out-of-state plates. Just a word to the wise.

b) Not sure where Mr. TreerootCO is getting his numbers, but I just renewed my 1996 Land Cruiser this month. Cost: $106.07. I'm in the City of Centennial, Arapahoe County. Maybe he's including the taxes he paid when he purchased the vehicle? Getting a title for a car you already own (and paid taxes on elsewhere) should be far cheaper.

Thanks Hulk. Yeah, that amount of money sounds a little more reasonable.

I know that CO requires getting plates within 90 days. I still have a "primary" residence in MO, so could probably get away with it, but no need if its's only $1-200.

I just looked at my registration from August, for Boulder County, and it was $71.67 for my 95.

You might have to pay an initial fee for re-titling and registration but the big chunk of change Treeroot is mentioning almost has to be for sales tax when purchased.

FYI that is a very expensive fine, up close to 1,000 if the state gets wind of it.

Maybe leave you license out of state till you change your tags and address? Either way in a year or so you'll have to do it maybe. I worked it for a year because i had to rewire and reprogram my whole motor, and rework my exhaust to comply with emissions regs here. that took me a little while.

...b) Not sure where Mr. TreerootCO is getting his numbers...

You are correct, that was when I bought it. Just renewed, here are those numbers:

Total 71.67
minus Ritter Tax = 35.17

Road Fee: 23.00
Bridge Fee: 13.50

Heck i just registered my 1987 Camry today, and it was
$100.00 :eek::eek:
It used to be $32 a year...

Turns out $25 of that was because of the "drive by" emmisions....

Emissions seems to be $25 bucks if you go to envirotest, or drive by 3 of the roadside setups within a certain period of time...

Got the CO tags yesterday. It was $84.26 for the plates for my 1996.

Of course, $25 for the emissions and I also had $15 for title tranfer from MO.

I'll post the emissions results in tech.
