importing a car after 2.5y years living in Switzerland

Hi guy's,

So I have a french registered RHD car, I brought it to france and imported it to France originally from the UK 3 years ago, I then moved to Switzerland but I kept the car registered in France at my friends address where I was staying in France. Now I would like to import my car and put it on Swiss plates. Do you think I will have much trouble with the authorities with this?

I have owned the car for 3 years but haven't been driving it excessively maybe max 7 day's a week, I have been caught speeding and the police never said anything, also when someone crashed into me in Basel last year the police asked why I hadn't changed the plates and imported the car and I told them the truth which is I work abroad 6 months of the year and 6 months in Switzerland and they didn't say anything. I do have a Swiss driving licence.

Does anyone have any experience with this? Do you think I could just call the official office and ask them what they think (without giving them my name of course)
