Im looking to buy a Smart Fortwo from the UK as they are cheaper and higher spec, however I have very little knowledge of VRT and what the rates are.
I've checked them out on www.ros.ie but how accurate is the pricing on that website?
My fear is that when I bring to car to Ireland I will have to pay any sum of money they want me to pay. At the moment the VRT calculator is quoting me between €800-1500. I'm afraid that I will be asked to pay more.
Another concern I have is that the VRT calculator is very information sensitive, for example if I change the year of the car the price changes. It also asks for month of registration. Does this really make a difference?
What should I look out for?
Has anyone here got any experience of getting a vehicle VRT'd? Thanks
