What if you take your cars for service to Germany and are given a loaner car from the german garage. I have seen this many times and never seen an issue
For up to 8 days it is not an issue. Declare it at a manned border (to the Swiss) upon entry.

Re: Things to avoid doing when claiming back German MWSt

I went yesterday to the shop where I bought my glasses to get the VAT refund. However they did not ask to see my import duty receipt from the Swiss customs. So I guess I could have gotten the customs forms stamped by the German customs and then just carried on into Switzerland without bothering to pay the import tax - or am I missing something here?

In general the Germans won't care wherever you paid Swiss duty.

Must have been expensive glasses (considering German prices!), though, since till 300 CHF it's all free on the Swiss import side..
