If you are in Ireland, and interested in FSD option, don't buy it until AFTER delivery

I learned today (thanks to Anton at Tesla Sandyford) that FSD added when ordering the car adds about ~1000 euros worth of VRT (vehice registration tax) to the total price of the car. On the other hand, the upgrade to FSD after delivery, is "only" 6500 euros including VAT. No VRT added.

I guess this makes sense but I never thought of this and wish I had before I ordered my M3P+ with FSD. I hope this is useful to somebody thinking of ordering now.

I don't get why governments design taxation with cliff edge thresholds. It causes all sorts of anomalies and silly behaviour to dodge it.

But the price of FSD is also going to go up by 1k early November. So you'd need to get your car by then in order to save.
Not quite true apparently:

Interesting. I was hoping they'd do something like that. For me I don't see the point in forking out for fsd if it's limited on steering, lane change and summon features as well as whatever else is being limited.
