Re: Buying and registering a car?

Quote:
I will be in the area for 8 months and I am looking at buying and registering a car for the period. (Anyone know of a nice late 80's BMW 3 series cabrio?)
My question is about buying and registering on tourist plates. Anyone have any suggestions about how I can go about it ???
As far as I am aware it is not possible to register a car in Switzerland unless you have a permit to be here. I've never heard of such things as tourist plates in Switzerland. What type of permit do you have, and have you thought of asking at your local traffic authority for the information?

When I first arrived I bought a car, but it had to sit at the dealership for two months while I waited for my work permit to come through. I was only allowed to register the car in my name once I had my permit.
