I am thinking of buying a UK automobile, but driving it in the UK for six months. Am I right to think VRT is only payable on entry to Ireland and what are the main documents you require for importation? Also I presume the VRT is calculated on the vehicle age and mileage entering Ireland?

We have been looking for a good reliable quality practical family automobile and deciding to go with a Skoda Octavia 1.0 TSI, as petrol suits our mileage - very short during the week and longer drives on weekends. My question and only reservation about the three-cylinder 1.0 TSI Octavia is its durability. Skoda and Volkswagen have a good reputation, but my only concern is how many years can be got out of a small engine in a big automobile? Have you any background into the work the manufacturers have put into this technology. and how durable do you reckon they will be? I've only heard great things about it, but I've heard a few non-Skoda drivers dismiss this engine.

I am due to pay VRT on a Kia Niro plug in hybrid (Sept 2017). The OMSP is not available on the VRT calculator, but the recommended retail price is available from the Kia Ireland website. Is it possible to estimate the OMSP based on the RRP and should I bring in the Kia price list when getting the automobile valued by NCT valuers?
