Buying a car

Question

I am new in Belgium and I am considering buying my first car here. I am looking for some middle age, size and not-expensive car (e.g., wagon, 5000 Euro).
Apart of purchase price and insurance what other cost should I consider? What are the taxes / registration / other fees associated with it? Are they purchase price or motor size or gross weight dependent? Just to get an idea. What is the general registration procedure?

You'll have to pay a one-off registration tax and an annual road tax. If you live in Wallonia there's an additional eco-tax. The following document explains them all in detail: http://koba.minfin.fgov.be/commande/pdf/Fold_TaxesCicul_2010_2011.pdf
