Driving a car in Dublin without importing it

    Hi folks

    I'm going to relocate to Dublin from my good old Russia. Going to work in Ireland for at least a couple of years. I.e. going to be a resident

    Here in Moscow, I drive my Subaru wrx sti 2004, it has unknown mileage, a good amount of tuning etc. Would really like to also use this car in Dublin, as it is my precious baby. However, looking at the importing rules, I can see that 1) getting such old and non-stock car registered with Irish plates is a pain 2) the importing fees are just insane

    Is there any way to use the car in Ireland, Dublin, without all of these difficulties? I.e. do not "import" it, as most likely it will be moving with me anyway if I switch countries once again, but still paying car taxes and so on

    Could not find sufficient info on the net, so asking on reddit

    Thanks in advance
