First congrats on a fantastic choice, I really hope you go through with it. I imported a 159, but if the car you want isn’t on the list you can make a rough estimate. The VRT chargeable is related to the OMSP x co2 rate for the car.
4C is rated at 157g/km, so you just scrape into band D at 27%, so you’ll owe 26% of what they calculate that car would sell for in Ireland with the same options, age and mileage. That’s OMSP.
if they think it’d sell on the open market for €40k, they’ll want €10,800, €50k Would be €13,500, and so on. Theres apparently some scope to argue after you’ve paid, but the car is not leaving the NCT centre without paying.
