You have to look at it from the only point of view that matters in this context. Because used luxury cars from England (of course, not made in England, that would be silly) can no longer be profitably sold to the Irish, they will now remain in England and thus push down the prices of used luxury cars there, making them affordable for the masses. And the proud brexiteers who sell them to buy new ones were never in the game for the money anyway, so they don’t much care.Car dealers importing vehicles from Japan post-Brexit

However, since Brexit you now have to pay the UK VAT rate of 20% on cars being imported from there, on top of the Irish VAT rate of 23%.
Car dealers here say it now works out cheaper to import European cars from Japan, who like Ireland have right-hand drive vehicles, as they are not subject to the 20% VAT charge, unlike the British cars.
