Defender 90 VRT

    Lads I'm looking at a defender 90. It's 1994 so not quite classic yet. Does anyone know what kinda VRT I'm into?? 3 seats in front & no seats or Windows in the rear.

    Essentially it's no different to a Berlingo van, but since the online calculator doesn't have the vehicle, I guess I could be gambling.

    Btw, it's on NI plates pre Brexit.

    €200 VRT as far as I know.

    passenger one would also be liable for around €5k in NoX charges, doesn’t apply to a commercial though.

    That's what I'd be thinking but then I'm hearing stories about the internal capacity being too small to constitute being a goods vehicle etc. Hard to know who to listen to. But of course they won't give a price until you present it, at which point you've bought it.

    There was a situation around 10 years ago where certain SWB had to pay like 13% because of load bay length vs overall length, like old shape Pajeros (91-98 shape)

    I think the rules changed in the meantime. I reckon if this was commercial from the factory that there shouldn’t be an issue.

    It's most likely going to be 13% of open market value. The 200 euro charge is only for vans

    What is a van? If the Defender is category N1 then it’s a van.

    200 euro and that's it.

    For sure before they decided to make trade difficult.

    Not so sure anymore.
