Importing car from Ireland- specific question

Hi everyone, just relocated from Ireland for a year. I trolled through many threads and found lots of information so thanks for that. Car is imported and I already have stamnummer and temporary insurance for a month. However, I still have few pending points to clarify, can anyone please help me.
1. Car is relatively new (April'15), do I still need a MFK?
2. Do all RHD cars need to change headlights? Or I just go through test first and see if they say.
3. Should I first go for MFK or can I go to registration office first and get temporary number plates. It would be Basel Land.

Re: Importing car from Ireland- specific question

Headlights have to be changed: the beam throw is to the wrong side. Are you currently blinding oncoming drivers?

You can't correct Xenon types with the stick on correctors, and they degrade the head light material anyway for non- Xenons.

Xenon types may have a setting to change the beam throw.. YMMV
