What kind of license plates are we talking here? My vanity plates saying "BAWX CAR" were $270 in Ontario Canada. $105 to get them redone this year.

They're $40 for "normal" plates though. + licensing

Colorado is insane for plates, you pay roughly 2% of MSRP. My Fusion ran about $730 for plates.

Just plane old Plates. I live in Colorado and almost half of it is fees because the state can't pass a raise on the taxes.

Last year I pad $400 and some change for my 45 k truck. Why can't they keep it consistent.

I mispoke, here is from Dept of Revenue:

These taxes are based on the year of manufacture of the vehicle and the original taxable value which is determined when the vehicle is new and does not change throughout the life of the vehicle.
Ownership tax is in lieu of personal property tax. Vehicles do not need to be operated in order to be assessed this tax.
The ownership tax rate is assessed on the original taxable value and year of service
Original taxable value is 85% of manufacturer's suggested retail price (MSRP).
The annual specific ownership tax is based on the year of service.
