Importing a car from US

Hi, I will be relocating to Switzerland next year and would like to bring my 2007 VW Beetle. I own the car, anyone had experience about the process, cost, etc.? Thanks!

Countless threads on this...Bottom line, you're better off selling it there and buying used/new here

Re: Importing a car from US

For a beetle I really wouldn't bother too much hassle as people have said, now if it was a Ferrari or you have a sentimental attachment it may be worth it...I brought my Jag XKR over this year, but then we live in France (just over the border) and I work in Geneva.
PM me if you want the gory details of what I found out
