Car Modifications?

Good evening,

Just wondering if anyone knows of any places that do car modifications? I知 looking to install a few electronic mods to my Audi, like a rear view camera etc.... there are many many places in the UK that do this, it痴 quite a big market, but I知 struggling to find anywhere here in Switzerland. If anyone knows any preferably in the St Gallen area (will travel) that are good then it would be great.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Car Modifications?

People here buy fully loaded cars, they don't modify them

Re: Car Modifications?

The way people do car mods here is they sell the car and buy a new one with more/newer/better options. Or rather, they lease one...

See, it's easy as pie.

Re: Car Modifications?

as said, most people don't touch their cars, or if they do they get the main dealers to do the mods, just ask audi how much it is for an OEM reversing camera lol.

saying that a lot of small garages will do whatever you ask them, we have a couple of local garages who (so far) have always done what we've asked

Thanks for the reply. I asked Audi CH for a reverse camera. It’s 2000 chf or thereabouts! 」450 in the UK via Audi!

Thanks to the rest of the people replying, not that they helped! I have a one year old Audi, camera wasn’t specked, bought it as ex demo. According to most of you I should jack in the car and get a brand new one. Whilst I agree that I could have got my own spec if I had bought new, that would have meant loosing a massive amount in value straight away when driven out of the garage, as all new cars do. Also, the generalisation that most people buy cars with full spec is just not true. I know noone who would walk in to Audi and just tick all option boxes for their RS6. There are must have options, but not all options are must haves.
