Welcome Eric.

Personally I'd save my money looking for an upper strut tower brace they have been proven not to improve rigidity a great deal, lower bracing on a 1.6 is a far more worth while course of action.

Have a look at here:http://www.ultraracing-switzerland.ch/kontakt.html

Hi, Welcome to the forums.

Where in Switzerland do you live? My sister lives in Schaffhausen.

I'm surprised that no-one will send parts out to you. I've sent parts all over the world in the past without any issue.

Oh, thats not good.

My advice then would be to find OEM under bracing from a 1.8 car.

Welcome to the forum. Montruex is a lovely place, I spend quite a bit of time in Verbier each year, but I've got an injury currently so don't think I'll make it this year


Cars looking good, but it needs lowering to make it look even better.

Looks nice Eric!

I lived in Villars for 3 years and am actually up here at the moment, skiing!

Surprised people won't send to you however i can sort of understand as Switzerland isn't part of the EU... It was the same as when my dad wanted to buy a Caterham 7 when we lived in Porrentruy however Switzerland is the only country that they will not ship to within Europe

Bonne chance mon ami!

I can't understand why people don't want to send things to other people... it's madness!

I have this VERY small little 'business' of sorts and I have recently sent things to Australia, Lithuania, Croatia, The Czech Republic, Denmark and Spain. All of them arrived with no issues and usually quicker than the stated delivery times.

Of course you could always find lots of bits you wanted, buy them and then make an epic road trip to the UK to pick them all up...

i don't know, but a lot of time, when i find a good part, i send a mail to the seller for ask how many is the postage to switzerland, and i got the answer.. England only..

make a trip for take them all up it's a good idea, but too expensive..
