    Car Buying

    Hi

    Could anyone tell me if its quite common for people to come over from Ireland to buy a car from England?

    My boyfriend is currently selling his car and a guy from Ireland is coming over to see it today. He does seem genuine.

    Ta Sarah

    Cars are cheaper and there are a lot more available in england than over here so he could very well be genuine.

    Hi Sarah,

    As you might see from another reply to you that i moved over to Ireland from Chester in sept'06 and yes it is very common for people to come over to the uk to buy cars as they seem to be alot cheaper and in better condition and of course there is also more choice.

    I have just done that myself, i had my alfa 3.0 gtv over here on english plates but have had to bring it back to the uk as i didnt want to re-resgister it over here as the road tax alone would have cost me more than 1100 Euro per year!!!
    So i got myself another astra from the uk to bring back.

    How did your bf get on with the irish guy?

    Steve

    I've sold cars to buyers from ireland with no problems, yes its cheaper to buy them in England but they also love their Opels.... Manta's/Ascona's more so
