Cheap place for Synthetic Oil in Switzerland?

I am looking for some Mobil 1 or equivalent fully Synthetic oil at a good price. Jumbo seem very expensive, for an unknown brand. Does anyone know the cheapest place to buy it? Motorex, Castrol, Mobil 1 something like that.

Re: Cheap place for Synthetic Oil in Switzerland?

Coop's DIY superstore in Steinhausen is good too. They have Mobil 1 for about the price I paid for "no-name" Synthetic. Another good place I have since found is this:

Your looking for an expensive premium product, obviously to put into a expensive premium car, as one doesn't use synthetic oil in a Reliant Robin, and you want it cheap ?

Re: Cheap place for Synthetic Oil in Switzerland?

Migros recently had a fully sythetic, no-nonsense properly rated oil going for a decent price but I have to agree with Mr R Soles, for tyres and oil I don't worry too much about the price, one might save your life, the other might save your engine, don't compromise.

Forget Coop and Migros.
Check out www.autoteile-meile.ch as it is so far the cheapest site for oil and tires. And it has a fast delivery also.

holy 5-year-plus resurrection!

Looks like it's part of the Delti group and indeed sends you that way for tyres.

Good intro post.

Why would a noob dig out a really old thread and post a spammy linky link as their very first EF post ? Mmmmm, let me think.

Re: Cheap place for Synthetic Oil in Switzerland?

So these days, on trips to the UK I drive through Mulhouse and go to Prixbar/Auchan. www.prixbasmulhouse.fr and look for specials on regular Mobil1 varieties, and combine with food shopping. Oils is not always on special, so
planning is required. 20 to 25 euros for 5 litres of Mobil full synthetic a is typical special. There is a motor factor/accessory shop on the same estate too. Their oil is expensive, but some tools, car tyre repair kits, brake cleaner, are reasonably priced.

Would still be interested to hear of other shopping centres on the periphery of Switzerland for car related things. Or indeed somewhere in CH.
Mobil1 Motorsport would be nice to find at a good price. 15w-50w, something nice and heavy at the low end for older machinery.
