    Yes you can once you keep it in storage outside of the state, I would be careful though as I don't think anyone knows what the situation will be from the 1st of January with Brexit... in terms of what fees may be put on imported vehicles at that stage....

    Thanks lads, just as I thought... poor vintage cars are getting a hammering with the nox

    At present there is no nox charge on any vehicle over 30 years of age...

    I know mate but if you wanted to buy a 91 or 92 then there would be. Price e for 30 yr older would be more.

    NoX shouldn't be an issue if its petrol.

    Diesel may be an issue alright.

    Ya its relative the nox charge, €600 on petrol cars.

    Of course there is €1000 difference between vrt'ing a 1991 or 1992 car compared to a car over 30... swings and roundabouts eh...

    What model or models are you interested in buying?

    Ah so nox doesn't apply to petrol?

    it does: but petrol is much cleaner.

    no it does apply to petrol cars. for example May 1990 325i vrt: €200

    may 1991 325i vrt: €720 + nox charge; €600= total €1320

    its capped at €600 for a petrol vehicle where the nox level is unknown... I believe its capped at around €4750 on a diesel vehicle.

    You need to get the actual NoX of the MR2 - anything else is guessing.

    The NoX will be low compared to the VRT at that age. Id be more concerned about the VRT

    not in this case....

    If the vehicle is a 1991 or 1992 there will be no "nox" level on the certificate of conformity or v5 as they were not measured for this at that time by the manufacturer...

    The highest amount of nox is assumed by revenue... (nox emissions of 0.251) which amounts to €600 for a vehicle with minimum vrt... so yes they guess the highest level of Nox is the case...

    1992

    vrt & nox charge on a 1992 MR2 gt manual is €1341 in total, breaking down as (€741 vrt & €600 nox)

    Only if you take the default value of NoX. Some research should turn up a specific value.

    What is it you mean when you say " some research should turn up a specific value"? Do you mean a google search or...? can you post a link for the OP?

    I would be very surprised if you could you get a figure for this car and in any case the information would need to be on a V5, certificate of conformity or official document from the manufacturer/distributor for Revenue.

    I am of the understanding manufacturers started recording NOX emissions in the late 1990's, I am open to correction or more specific information regarding its introduction....

    Unless you're very lucky...it wasn't required to be recorded as a separate value until EURO III engines.

    There are combined values for CO2 and NOx for EURO II engines, but nothing separate. EURO I engines will have even less data.

    The €600 cap for petrol engines is equivalent to NOx of up to 80 mg/km (0.080g/km). I wouldn't like to think of the amounts chargeable if there weren't any caps.

    Is NOx not recorded on the MOT?

    Or is it a case that the space is there and only filled in by as you say EURO II+ cars?


  • Moderators, Motoring & Transport Moderators Posts: 2,941 Mod ✭✭✭✭ macplaxton


    NOx isn't recorded on the MOT, just CO, HC and Lambda

    On the V5C I have for the 1998 EURO II car I last registered, it has nothing under emissions:

    516151.png

    516148.png

    on the VRC issued for it here, it only has the CO2 Emissions (g/km)

    516150.jpg

    I don't own a EURO III car, but do have a couple of 2005/06 EURO IV (V5C top of the page):
    516153.png

    Which shows seperate NOx (but on V5C this is grammes rather than milligrammes).

    516154.png

    The Irish VRC only shows data entry for V.7 - 139 (plus they don't log the type approval number even though there is an entry for it on the docs)

    If I were to VRT the 1998 car today, it'd be €680 CO2 (34% of minimum OMSP of €2000) + €600 NOx = €1280 VRT. If the 2005/6 car then €380 (19% OMSP of €2000) + €165 NOx (33 mg x €5)

    My beef is that they don't capture all the data even when available (such as towing weights) which are quite useful when touring round the EU or re-registering in another member state. It really needs another Directive to standardise the certificates (like they have sort of done with driving licences, rather than the half-arsed standardisation of just the field codes)
