It depends exactly when your car was registered in 2008. If it was prior to the date that ALPINA started supplying CO2 figures to the DVLA then yours will be classified as PLG. If after, then you should be benefitting from lower tax based on emissions.

And before you ask, I don't know the exact date that this new process started...
