Default Buying a car in england from ebay....

That one to be precise.

How much would it cost me to get it into Ireland and re-register it and such?

I'd appreciate it if I didn't get "ballpark" figures or people's disagreements with the choice of car and such in this thread.

I've tried google but no such luck.

Also on a deadline so would be grateful for quick responses.

the vehicle registration tax is the last bastion of anti-EU trade tarrifs. so, yeah, they fuck you when you get it registered. basically, they will tax you a hefty percentage of what THEY value the car at.

Didn't bid on it.

It's going to what I assume is a scrapper. It's a crime really, that's a beautiful car.

Notice youhave this up in racershaven as well! To be honest with about €300 VRT, ferry trip and flight costs its better to just buy an escort from the buy and sell. I assume you are looking for a runaround and not something mental?

Very hard to find a 3 door hatch like that.
