Re: What do I need when buying a car!

If you are buying from a dealer most or all of the things are taken care by them and generally included in the price. We paid about 350 chf for the road tax (which i think is 40 per year) and a few other things. the number plate costs about 150-200 chf which again is done by the dealer. Ours is not on lease so i am not 100% sure of how number plate works when you lease - as in whether the plate is for you or the dealer. I think the best would be to check with a couple of dealers and ask them.

All the best with your move!
