    The problem with buying any car abroad is that it will aways be classed as a grey import and values will suffer.

    Even worse for Vectra's/Astra's/Corsa's though, as they would be Opel, so a LHD pel in the UK would be worth nothing. Southern Ireland is your only option, but by the time you pay import duty etc, your savings would be eaten up.
