Thread: Brexit Proofing the Garage....Aston Martin DBS

  1. #51
    There is a grey volante DBS in my neck of the woods, Paddy Connolly sold another Quantum silver DBS and it was manual about 2 years ago and there was an unfortunate silver one years ago that had to get a full respray after unfortunate act of vandalism.
    I use Charles Hurst for service who are great but have also used Andrew Lyndsey
    http://www.andrewlindsayspecialistcars.com/ for the odd thing and he obviously works out cheaper then main dealer.
    I hope to visit this place though for a road-trip/service , https://aston.co.uk/ they have a huge selection to salivate over.
    Always good to spend your morning test driving the latest and charles hurst boucher road are more then happy to let you do that whilst you wait.

I know I already asked you for photoshoot with your Lamborghini and then couldn't catch you at Cars & Coffee I've been on but if you will want or need some photos taken of DBS I'd be more than happy to do it for you. Can't wait to see your new car.
    Thanks Marcin. I would like to take you up on that offer, for both cars, we can work out something in the future. If you are at the next C&C we can chat about it.

    I remember the car Paddy Connolly had, I did enquire about it but it had sold, seemed to move very quickly. I have no experience of Hursts apart from buying a Mercedes SL63 a few years ago, and had huge hassle getting them to stand by their warranty. I did call Andrew Lyndsey, seems like a rather eccentric chap on the phone, but I believe he is very good. My specialist of choice would be Bamford Rose, but wherever possible I will use the likes of Ken Plant.

    The DBS is now an Irish car. The VRO came back with a VRT figure within 5 days, very very quick, but the number is quite a bit stiffer than I had hoped, and I am just now considering if it is worth an appeal. There are very few cars in Ireland, so no price precedent to go on there, and asking prices in the UK do not reflect real selling prices.
    As to the car itself, I have still to driven it much with work, but the long drive back from Leeds, with a detour through Snowdonia gave me a pretty good grounding even though the weather was atrocious. I will follow up with some impressions soon, but just thought I should mention that when paying the VRT last week, I dealt with the manager of the VRO, and had an interesting conversation about the situation post Brexit assuming a crashout. Duty will be charged at 10% on the invoice price, and then VAT at 23% on the invoice price including duty. VRT will continue to be calculated on the OMSP.
    However he did make one interesting point on classic cars, pointing out there are so many residing in the state on UK plates, and the owners are not aware of how they will also have to pay duty and VAT on top of the €200 VRT. He also said that Revenue will use the OMSP to calculate the duty and VAT where a proper invoice is not available!!

    Steve, does this mean that absent some more legislative changes, there will be an additional 10% and also VAT at 23%? On top of up to 36% of the OMSP?

    Another example of making sure that the tax take goes up by increasing the tax and killing the tax base.


    I will be keeping any purchases in the K.

    Exactly. VRT will continue as before, charged as a percentage of Irish Market Value, and bands remain as is for this year.
    Push that aside for the second set of calculations, 10% duty on the landed cost of the car and then 23% VAT on the landed cost plus duty, in addition to VRT!
    I estimate that the DBS would have cost an additional 29k in a crash out scenario come November.
    It will I think push up or firm up the value of anything that is here already, as will the new NoX charges on pre Euro6 diesels.
