Final christmas gift arrived

A couple of days ago, our final christmas gift from my parents arrived and is now looking for the perfect spot in the house.

A classic german christmas pyramid, which you can't really find in the states and so it was stuck in 'traffic' for close of a month now.

Needless to say, once 'sober january' is over, we have to make some Feuerzangen bowle.

my luck with car's continues...

So now it's the 2nd time that our new car is at the dealer for service, due to an check engine light. And there latest statement was:

It will be here for an undefined amount of time, since we have no idea what's wrong with it.

This was last thursday and now it's wednesday and not a single beep except 'we are talking to Porsche Germany, since we are out of ideas'

I really hope it doesn't turn into a buy back, since frankly we would loose at least 4k$ during this process and I really don't want to start shopping yet again.

On the other hand, they gave as a 2014 Porsche Cayman loaner car, with a PDK transmission and I'm really happy that we decided to buy the convertible instead of the coupe as well as the manual transmission instead of the PDK (which is in all respect an amazing transmission, but just doesn't feel right and is rather boring)
