bringing my USA BMW to CH?

Has anyone done this recently (more or less recently)? We are contemplating bringing our car (2008 model 3 Series) with us when moving from California to Switzerland in the near future. If anyone wants to share their experience - it would be greatly appreciated. What do we need to pay attention to? Do we need a Certificate of Conformity (I have heard it's almost impossible to obtain that from BMW in CH)? What exactly did you have to change (front lights, indicators etc.)? Any lasting problems (Radio/GPS) or were you able to have the electronics reprogrammed for CH? Approx. how much did it cost to make those changes? Any trouble with insurance companies due to the fact that it is a foreign car? Thanks.
