Re: Importing BMW X5 35D from US to Switzerland

I understand the confusion. Actually the problem is the intermediate headlights (feux de position). On the US model the lights from the light from the indicators turn on as well as the standard circular (white) intermediate lights.

They just want those turned off.

BMW factory doesn't allow BMW garages to change this (it needs an electronic code)...

So I'm looking for a garage with experience in doing this....

Thanks!

Re: Importing BMW X5 35D from US to Switzerland

Thanks for all that posted, I find this very informative. I was planning on shipping my 2007 Mercedes-Benz C200 Sport from LA here this year but after reading all the comments I think I'm better off to just bite the bullet and buy something here. I didn't expect they would make it that difficult and I'm not just talking about importing cars but also when it comes to business and such.
