Buying a car in DE & importing to CH

Can anyone help?
I would like to buy a mini in Germany (old classic) and then import it back to CH (private seller). Does anyone know the process and what paperwork is needed for the car ie emissions... How can I get it back to CH (drive it back on the owners plates?) Is the import done at the boarder or is there period of time you can drive it in CH before it must be registered?

Are the authorities strict on modifications to cars ie suped (think I spelt that wrong!!) up engines etc...

I also heard there are professional importers that can actualy be cheaper than doing it yourself, can anyone recommend a reliable company? The price of the car is only 3000euros not a brand new motor!

Really appreciate some advice..
Regards, Usessions
