Re: Any opinions on Rafz/Eglisau or Dielsdorf/Regensdorf?

I considered buying a place in Regensdorf last year but decided against. Although there is a reasonable shopping centre there, it seems there is not much else. I found road access to/from motorway is a bit of a pain (even though it runs quite close) and train access is currently a bit poor (slow S6 route through Seebach), although this should improve in 2012/2013 I think.
Eglisau/Hüntwangen/Rafz are all nice places to live; convenient to the airport so quite multi-national communities who live there & work at the airport. Close to the German border for cheap shopping (all big German discounters within 5/10 minute drive) & good value German restaurants (e.g. Schweinschnitzel & frites for 8 euro versus at least 25 CHF on the Swiss side).
Do check the tax rates; surprisingly high "tax foot" without much in the way of amenities provided.
Do not even think of commuting to Zurich by car; Rafz/Eglisau are often in the traffic news. Trains about every 30 minutes, more frequent in rush hour.
