Should I be typically Swiss and have my new Beemer de-badged, or should I leave them on as a deterrent to boy racers?

No, do what I do and switch all the body work to unpainted carbon fiber or primered kevlar!

It is all in the exhaust pipe layout anyway

The number of 335s in Switzerland compared to the UK is staggering

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Bought Metallica concert ticket last week on alltickets.ch and haven't received any ticket until now. I called them yesterday and was told they would send it today, but the status still showed "not shipped". WTF?

Don't buy anything on alltickets.ch. They also speculate the tickets and sell for higher price. Just got to know today..stupid me

The 330d and 335d have the same exhaust layout, there are no other visual clues that I am aware of.

The garage hasn't called me to say my new car is ready to pick up today, even though I don't have time to pick it up today anyway

Re: The First World Problem Thread

My OH complained that his packed lunch was getting warm in the office before he could eat it so I bought him one of those little cool bags with a couple of ice blocks in. Now he's complaining that his packed lunch us too cold.

My hubby just brought me some Luxemburgerli back from Sprüngli in Zürich, and there's no room in the fridge for them.
