THE number of new-car registrations hit the 925 mark on the second day of the 132-reg era, new figures show.

Following the first day's surge to 1,927, a more modest 925 were registered on the second day.

Nonetheless, that brings the total to 2,852 in just two days which is already 63pc  of last July's total.

The figures augur well for the new registration system but a lot of people will have to buy between now and the end of the month to make up sales lost in June as they waited for a 132 plate.
