Far as i know you need some taillights that have this E code on them. If they do, MFK is not a problem. Also note that in some cases of tuning taillights you need additional reflectors installed on the rear bumper (stick-on), which you should get with the lights.
How about OEM lights from a US car. The look the same (same colors and everything) but I'm sure they'll have DOT stamped on them instead. Do they accept the DOT stamp?

"shouldnt" be an issue as lots of american cars here, and if a reflector is built in then even better unless you have others on the bumper etc

Re: I'm confused about the eignungserklärung

Word of warning: since the warm weather came and people started switching to summer wheels, police is out checking their Einigungserklaerung. I saw them a few nights in a row, but tonight they stopped me. Turns out that I'm not allowed to drive with the summer wheels (which are now on the car), even though I have an Einigungserklaerung, because it's not stamped by the STVA.

The policeman was very nice though and let me off without a fine and explained me that all I have to do is go to the STVA and get the erklaerung stamped and I'll be fine. Too bad the STVA is closed on Saturdays

For example: when it comes to suspension for the coil-overs I have the certificate TUV Nord from Bilstein for the B16 PSS9 the likes of which can be seen here http://www.dvsegmbh.info/PDF/einbau/...M4-Y542A01.PDF

I have imported an S4 from the USA with non-stock coilovers. Since the coilovers are only manufactured for the USA, it seems the only way to get the appropriate paperwork here is to have the car tested and that will cost CHF 15,000! Yikes. So now I am in a dilemma - Should I remove the coils and replace them with Swiss ones? I got a quote for CHF 5,000 which is way too much. Since you have done it to your S4, could tell me that is how much I should expect to pay (In which case, I am shipping the car back to the USA and selling it off!)

thank you for your insight!

Re: I'm confused about the eignungserklärung

Hi There,

Off the top of my head I think the coil overs inc fitting were about 7-8k... So 5 if it's for ps seems quite good, mine however is an ABT RS spec so it needed DRC mods and coding and later changing uprated ARB and I think they are cheaper now than they were in CH.

Testing and getting certification is a waste of time. I would get some Bilstein imported in and fitted by a friendly garage and then have them issue the certificate. I would imagine one could save some coin by supplying the parts directly and just paying for the labour. Then sell yours on RS246 or such...

Re: I'm confused about the eignungserklärung

Anyone know where I can get papers for some BBS rims EXCEPT the official importer? I bought the wheels used in Austria as they are no longer manufactured new, so there was no way to buy them in CH (well, except used, but they are RARE so no chance really).

The official importer quoted me triple the price for papers because they were bought outside CH. They even nicely answered my question as to the reason: "because people buy rims outside CH and then they just buy the papers here". All fine and I don't blame them, but since it was impossible to really buy the wheels new from here (no longer manufactured) it seems a bit silly to pay triple the price for the papers.

So, any ideas as to where ELSE I could get papers from?

The papers (Eignungserklärung) reference the car as well as the wheel rims (at least in the case of the Golf I used to have) so even buying second hand wheels here complete with papers won't help. The document appears to be the product of a multi-stage process . . .

Re: I'm confused about the eignungserklärung

In my experience once I have the papers I need to go to STVA or TCS and get them "approved" (meaning an addition to the fahrzeugsausweis). My problem is...I can't get the papers saying the wheels are ok for my car in the first place...
