Are second hand cars in Northern Ireland or Republic of Ireland cheaper than the rest of UK?

Well Ireland is on Euros so you’d need to convert , as for Northern Ireland I’ve never checked.
I tend not to complicate matters with cars , stick with my mantra of paying a few quid more for decent unmolested motor.
Cheapness can be a cruel mistress indeed , sometimes leaving you wishing you hadn’t been weak.

Thanks guys, my wallet is going to take a real beating soon so I am starting to plan to replace the family car with an even bigger car but my goodness 8 seater vehicles are just so expensive. . . VW Caravelle and V class merc are both well north of £50k.

I was currently looking at this as I didnt want a family bus that looks dull and boring but lets see.

94067


94068


94069


Do you guys have any recommendations for a 8 seater car / van?

Turns out its a limited Verossi edition called VR46 with 170bhp that can be mapped to 200bhp. . . interesting for a van . . .

And that's probably just a stage one map with no modifications 🤔😎

Yeah, more than likely.

I've been looking at remaps for my Leon. A stage one from Revo takes it from 181bhp to around 230bhp and an extra 100ish lbft!! :)

To be fair I'm in no mad rush to do that, it's plenty quick enough as it is!

That's a Valentino Rossi limited edition. Only 500 made :)

If your going to buy the transit go big with no regrets & go green.
You can then say your doing your bit for the environment 😂

That's a good power gain from a stage 1..🤔 I'd be getting that done ASAP 😂
