Xenon replacement bulbs in Switzerland vs shipping from Germany

Hi.

My dipped headlight lamp blew yesterday, and I urgently need a replacement. I can't find an open garage anywhere due to Coronavirus, and not wanting to be without a car I can drive at night in case of emergency my best bet is doing it myself (a bit daunting as Audi really doesn't seem to want you servicing anything but Youtube tells me it's possible)

Anyhow, I'm looking for a D3S fitting bulb, probably going to go for a Philips D3S 42403 XV. I can get a pair for about 140 EUR from Germany + 15 EUR shipping. What would likely import charges be on this?

Alternatively, does anyone know of any good Swiss stockists of such things? Google seems to come up with CHF 265 for a local option.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

I wanted to suggest Atu, but they're closed as well. Tutti.ch has lots of items and I'm not sure whether you will find what you're looking for but it's definitely worth a try.
