Car import from NL to CH when moving - should I pay tax?


I read some information about importing vehicles to the Netherlands.

Been living in NL for 3 years and moving to Zürich very soon. I want to bring over my Audi A3.

I see there is a 4% import tax, and an 8% VAT to pay when importing. My common sense tells me, since I can prove I paid VAT in NL, I won't pay that and will only pay 4% import tax.

Can anyone confirm that? Or am I getting it wrong?
Also, 4% of what? Is there some official evaluation index the tax authorities look at?

Thank you,
