Car buying tips

Hi all,

Please can anyone offer some advice on where best to look when considering buying a car? I am aware of comparis.ch and autoscout.ch but is there any other website I am missing?

I live in Basel, so if you know of any local ad websites that would be great. Looking for a diesel, max ~8K CHF price.

Also what does one need to have / do when buying a car? I have converted my licence to a swiss licence. Obviously you need car insurance, and a swiss equivalent MOT(?) but is there anything else?? any tips are greatly appreicated.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Mo

Re: Car buying tips

Thanks for your help. Also, do you know if there are any swiss sites to check used car book values? Im looking at VW golfs and have no idea how to judge if something is a good offer or not....

e.g. this one: http://www.autoscout24.ch/de/d/vw-go...&yearfrom=2007

help!

30% less than advertised price is good value, most cars sit for months & dont sell!
