In theory whilst we are still on EU terms until end of year there would be no import taxes now. The EU warranty terms may differ to UK, you'd need to ask those questions.

By definition the spec wouldn't match the UK model, obviously so in this case as the model variant isn't imported (more relevant if you were importing an Ocean or Coast)

Could be a good solution. Going forward Eire is an easy choice logistically, not sure if other EU countries would be better tax saving wise.
It also depends what side you prefer your steering wheel.....

Currently up in the highlands and over the past week have seen several Coast models on sites all of which were hired. Helped several people out with things like turning the gas on and electrics.

Saw one couple sleep with all the blinds open. Had a conversation with them next morning and it transpired they had been away for a week and didn't know the van had blinds. The lady had been lying on the floor for a week getting changed. Saw another guy wind an awning out without support and sat under it with no support.

There could be some very abused Coasts on the second hand market in the future.
Are you in a Cali?

T6.1 Coast 150
This was my thinking. I ordered a Coast with essentials (3 way air-con, parkings gadgets, privacy glass) and came in at just over 51k. Cheaper than 3 year old T6 Oceans on the market. I can live with a manual roof. Only downside is that i dont have it for this summer.
Thats a great price could I ask where you got it from as looking to order a Coast too!

True but Eire isn't the only choice for RHD, there's also Cyprus for example or a non-standard RHD order in the other EU countries as some have done. As the original poster mentioned importing to UK from Ireland RHD is probably a fair assumption.

Via drive the deal (who will put you in touch with VW Crawley Eurovans) or autoebid (who put you in touch with VW Liverpool I believe). So you could go straight to those dealers.
