Tax Free UK Cars exported to France

Hi there,
Can somebody please help me - I am posted to France and am buying a tax-free car.
As its not an established place such as BFG or Cyprus, I am getting bamboozled by the HMRC regs and the like.

Has anybody bought a UK tax free car and exported to France?

I know I get the VX302 from the DVLA which I must hand in on export to prove i have left, it is the French side which is confusing.

Must I register the car in France to be tax free? What do I need to produce to show I am tax free to get a Customs Certificate C846A? Am I liable for tax in France or am I tax free as military/NATO forces on temporary posting?

Help!!! Or can someone tell me who can answer these questions please?
