New car export from UK to Switzerland

I am planning to buy a new Jaguar X-type car and heard that buying the car in the UK and get it transported to Switzerland could save me a lot of money.

Car must be the Swiss version and conform to Swiss regulations.

Has anyone of you made this experience ?

Can someone give me the address of an official UK Jaguar car dealer who is used to export business and whom I could contact.

Thanks for your help and advise,

I think you will find cars are cheaper in CH than UK, plus of course steering wheel in UK cars tends to be on the other side.....

Re: New car export from UK to Switzerland

With the exchange rate in our favour it may at first seem good, but if you are resident in Switzerland, you will need a certificate of conformity, which is quite difficult to get hold of, plus you will have to pay VAT and possibly import tax. If you google UK car export you will find some companies, but do your research and sums first. From my perspective it pays to buy an ex demo model from a local dealer.
