It's amazing how often I encountered German products last year at my US trip, aside of the cars for sure.
Did you get a fair price or did it cause some extra taxes caused by european products punish tolls?
They were expensive but don't think it is due to tariffs. They are high quality and costly. At least I caught them on sale (which seems rare) and the basic set includes the knives we use most often.

Aside from BMW (and Audi) and the knives, we also have a Miele vacuum and Bosch dishwasher and I have been using Braun razors for years. So yeah there is pretty good representation of German engineered products in our home.

Some people prefer to buy only home country / local products and others prefer or need to always go with lowest price. I prefer to buy quality even if it sometimes means waiting a bit. Almost all of our furniture is U.S. made (Ethan Allen in our house, before they started offshoring, as well as some stuff in our condo made by the Amish), as are the new windows we had put in our house. I am also a big fan of Allen Edmonds shoes, which has also started to offshore.

But we have products from all over. We buy what we think is the best combination of quality / price. If that is the U.S. (and often it is) then great, but otherwise we go with what we think is best for us. To each their own.

10-hour DJ shifts are hard on headphones. Sound quality doesn't matter so I tried using cheap headphones, but I'll literally break them in 2-3 shifts. I've found the most robust headphones are Beats Pros. My current set was acquired Oct 28, 2014, so I can't complain the headband broke today. I'm not sure if I can buy a replacement headband, but I can't wait to find out. Ordered a new set except they're all murdered out now.

So I have a 96 993, Black on Black. I bought it 2 years ago. The car is pretty original but a previous owner put in an Alpine deck, which looked like crap and was so complicated I could barely figure it out. The other thing that I didn't care for were the Turbo Twist wheels.....so I have fixed both these problems. I got a Becker Deck from Becker, so new with added Bluetooth, and a set of Tech Art RH wheels, I think they look much better. The wheels drive tomorrow and then I have to wait for the nice weather to arrive to get them installed. The attached pic is what it will look like, same car, same wheels.

Merry Christmas to me!

I picked up a new Made in Germany 12" ketchup bottle opener on Tuesday:



Used it for several plastic spring water and seltzer bottles already, and it is quickly earning a spot in my kitchen tool box. I may have to buy the matching jar opener one of these days.....
