It is all in the exhaust pipe layout anyway

The number of 335s in Switzerland compared to the UK is staggering
The 330d and 335d have the same exhaust layout, there are no other visual clues that I am aware of.

On a similar note

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

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

debadged is classier

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.

You shouldn't keep them in the fridge, anyway.

Re: The First World Problem Thread

I really want Switzerland to win, but at the same time the noise from tooting horns and screaming fans will make putting the kids to sleep very difficult.



Go Argentina!

Those stats are just the result of a poll with ambiguous questions. When they said "furry friends", it wasn't a reference to post-marriage shaving habits

I can't face the walk from the third floor where the settee is to the first floor where the gym is.

Why don't we have a lift?

Re: The First World Problem Thread

Knowing a bit more about dogs compared to before, I totally would do this. Dogs who are well socialized with other dogs tend to behave WAY better on (or off) leash in the presence of other dogs compared to ones that are isolated.

Also... yep, pets in bed means warmer bed in winter.


So, my "first world problem" issue is that my neighbors new chair lift to help him get up the stairs makes it tough for me to get past if I've got bags of groceries in each hand. I'm pleased for him that the landlady made some improvement to help his troubles, but for the rest of us, especially since he lives on the 1st (2nd if you're American) floor, things have gotten slightly worse.
