Exporting Car to UK

Hi everybody - I'm new to the forum having just discovered it. A bit late in the day - because I may be moving back to the UK in a couple of months having lived here in Geneva for the past year or so.

Anyway, I need some advice. I bought a car here in Jan 2007 and I'm worried that I will loose alot on the car if I try to sell it in Switzerland given the weakness in the second hand car market. In anycase, I like the car and I wouldn't mind keeping it if I can't sell it for the right price....

Is taking the car back to the UK a viable alternative? Would there be any import duty/vat/tax related issues? Also, would it be more expensive/problematic to get car insurance in the UK?

Thank you all in advance for any input/guidance you can give me.
