I bought a 2010 Mercedes 350 CDI; will the VRT go down in January as it will be a year older?

You're right, the value Revenue places on a car does reduce as the car gets older. However, I suspect in your case that that would be offset by the new VRT bands from 1 January 2021. Your car's CO2 figure will be 'uplifted' to a higher equivalent WLTP figure, which is very likely to increase the VRT rate you would pay. Read these articles for more information, but I'd suggest you're better off registering that car before January if possible:
