Hi baddabing,
I did price it up on and the car (with extras) came in at 86,120

If you then take off 30% VRT and 21% VAT and add 17.5% UK VAT, the price comes in at 67000 or about 45,500

This means that an Irish dealer would have needed to discount by more than 10,000 to beat my UK price - which is very unlikely.

Also the car would always be classed as an import and would not come with Telematics or 3 year warranty.
