Ebay is a lazy choice or local garage?

Re: halfords equivalent in switzerland

I had been looking for one myself, but never found anything... Your best option is really Jumbo in Crissier or a local garage.

Re: halfords equivalent in switzerland

No Ford dealer in Lausanne, which Lausanne do you live in then, some two shack village in the outback of Australia ?

Google = www.fordredstar.ch, 021 622 71 61
(and another 47'983 entries, some of which are likely to be useful)

Car part shops, sorry can't be arsed to Google, buy you can !

I think Conrad might be pretty close.

No there isn't, there are a few small independants around there is one quite near me, they also sell loads of camping gear, trailers and tools etc as well as the trevy boy racer bits and pieces, but they are expensive

coop home and hobby sell things like headlight bulbs etc

Re: halfords equivalent in switzerland

I've just joined so I couldn't answer your thread earlier!

I use a company called ESA (http://www.esa.ch), who supply to garages in Switzerland. There is one close to Jumbo in Bussigny. You need to have a trade account to buy online but anyone can go into the shop.
