Lock up your Laguna coupe.the Irish are coming

In the past year Irish "private" imports have increased is usual when the economy is takin it up the exhaust.

Its mainly from UK, but also a little from Japan(rhd)

Specifically on the lag coupe(which is no longer on sale in the UK), The new price differential,when both meg 3 coupe and lag 3 coupe were on sale in both UK and Ireland.
Base lag3 diesel coupe was over twice the price of the meg 3 coupe in Ireland.
Resale values in both Uk and Ireland are bad on meg 3 and Lag 3 but cos of the vagaries of the original pricing ,used diesel lag 3 coupes from the UK are a cheaper option than buying the same year/mileage one here, even with import duties.

If its a big engine/hi emission make , its different.
Like for example you could get a 2004-2011 merc sl 350/500 or slk above 200 or a 350 z cheaper here than in the UK..why? cos all of those models would cost you 2000 a year in road tax
Currently in coup's garage:
RM III coupe 1.5dci FVT,Audi TT Mk1 ,a bike and too much rubbish.
