I worked out a different answer, slightly lower.
My method was to work out the price of the car excluding 17.5% VAT
Then add on the VAT rate 24% onto the ex VAT price I just worked out.

What do you make the ex VAT price to be?

I don't it differently, not sure whether my method was correct.

I done

24-17 1/2 = 6.5

Then added 6.5% of vat to the nearest €10 to the old price with the old vat.

Work out the price excluding VAT first, then add the new VAT on.
I have a VAT registered business so I know this is the correct method.

Think of it this way: You have 1.175 times your original price before VAT. Using your method, you add 6.5% of 1.175 times your original price. This gets you to 1.065*1.175 times, or 1.251 times your original price, not 1.24.
