Re: How to PRIVATELY import a car EU to CH

Apart from classic cars, most used cars are actually cheaper in Switzerland, higher spec'd, more often than not garaged, and maintained to a higher standard. Some makes used to prepare cars to a higher standard for the Swiss market, extra sealant against oil leaks on sump gaskets, etc.

I just had company rented cars while here but my impression is that even classics are cheaper. I might be wrong but seems like prices of new cars are higher than in the surrounding countries just because of the demand and low interests on leasings, but as soon as these cars are returned they flood the used market and prices drop noticeably.
