I don't know. But an alternative question also suggests itself. I have a UK import which I will shortly be replacing. I can already get a refund of the VRT (based on current value) under the current regime if I re-export it to UK/NI. Post January, is there also a possibility of getting a VAT rebate.
The Cheapest option BEV I can see that suits my needs is the Kia ENiro
Room for family baby seat etc,
Cheapest I can see is 30k for a 2 yer old mid range and 40k for new after grants.
There is still a big premium on BEV or even PHEV
My money tree is not doing as well as i wold like Leo.
I am not in the position where dropping 40k or comittting 500 to a 1000 a month on a car is viable even with savings on fuel and maintenance.
I don't have the option of a company car or a company to lease a car through, private leasing is not an economic model in Ireland.
I do see it makes a lot of sense and that BEV is the way to go but I am in the market in 2 to 3 years for second hand not new.
Has anyone actually imported a car from UK or Northern Ireland since 1st January. I am very aware of the rules and what it says on various websites, but are they actually happening. I would love to hear from someone who's had the experience.
