Wanted - 2019 auto vignette

- Piss poor planning?
- No spousal communication?
- Have an extra vignette?

I have the solution: I'll take it off your hands for 25 chuffs.

After all, we're nearly 16% into 2019 so it's already lost over 6 chuffs!

This is a once-in-a-February offer.

Re: Wanted - 2019 auto vignette

Hmm, strange math:
40 * 0.85 = 34

  1. 40 less 15% is 34. Correct.
  2. Perhaps 30 CHF might be reasonable.
  3. Let's start at 25 for negotiating purposes.

Are we trading at a premium or discount to the assumed value of a 2019 vignette?

Let's find out....

Considering it's valid from 1.12.2018 till 31.1.2020 (and let's assume every month has same amount of days ) it's already expired 3/14

Fair price would therefore be about 31.5 CHF

Re: Wanted - 2019 auto vignette

Also, it's good until 31 January, so it's only lost 1/12 of it's value!

I have no pressure to sell and can hold out. I will easily get CHF 35, even 38 in the summer holiday time.

35 bucks seems to be the going rate.

Re: Wanted - 2019 auto vignette

I'm following the Swiss financial year as the basis for my calculation.

And based on this forum, Ricardo is a hot bed of con artists, rip off merchants, and general chicanery. I wouldn't touch it with your credit card...

Still, a vignette is a depreciating asset...

But since it would still cost you 40chf to buy it now or in November then it's actually lost 0% percent of it's value, then given the time someone would have to take to either post it to you or meet you then you would have to add a service which in Switzerland would not be cheap, but since I'm in a generous mode I'll only charge you a 25chf service fee, so it's yours for 65chf

Re: Wanted - 2019 auto vignette

are you Scottish? by the way 40 CHF is only 4.444 pints at Paddy Reilly's pub in Zurich.... or 0.037 times of the yearly extra consumption:

Re: Wanted - 2019 auto vignette

Would you consider a 2018 vignette for 11CHF? I'd even be willing to let it go for 8CHF if you come and remove it from the windscreen yourself.
