There are two on here that I have seen. Are there many more? If I could find one for sale in Ireland what could I expect to have to pay for it?

Obviously there are quite a few in europe and the Uk but what would the VRT be?

Cheers

There was one for sale round Dundalk, dunno if it sold but it was for sale last time I spoke to the owner.

The charger was just after being rebuilt...or it may possibly have been a new charger, I can't remember which. Has a sweet M3 interior as well.

I'm sure some of the Dundalk lads could inform you if it's still for sale.

Oh, it was a new charger that was fitted too.

PS, Richard, how did you know I would know

If you are interested give Gerard a call on 086 8173189

Car will be VRT'd by Gerard if its staying down south, so you wouldn't even have to worry about that

LOL, good point, we were talking about it in the workshop a minute ago, had to go back to the nice warm office though, bit too chilly out there.

I owned one in the UK before I moved over here. (I was imported by my wife
)

When you say "crazy money" how do they work it out it doesn't show up on their online quote system, and it must be hard to set an open market selling price on a car like the Rallye. What did you have to pay on yours or did you buy it in this country.

Ps Are you bringing yours to Portlaiose?

Hey Dusty, I bought a 1990 Rallye last january in Manchester. It cost me £5,500 and I was quoted €2,000 to €2,500
to clear it. They mentioned a 'Classic/Collectable' on the phone the day I enquired about the VRT and when they came back (from their main office in Rosslare) the day after they had a value of €8,000 to €10,000.
Because the car is under 2000cc the VRT is calculated as 25% of the Market Value.
They only way they can determine this is by checking English prices as far as I know - since these were never sold here.

I think Glenn in Midleton Co Cork is still trying to sell his RHD one, €8,000 and fully registered.
There are shots of it from lalst August Show in Limerick/Fermoy if someone still has them....

3000 Euro VRT that gives a market selling price of over €12k
where are they getting that from, I presume they have to be able to justify their figures? Nice ones in the UK seem to be available for £4500 (€6500)

When was this? Recently? Did you try to argue that they were over valueing the car? How do they come up with an open market value of €12k?

Oh and any pics, did you bring the car in from the UK or Europe?

Cheers
