Went shopping in Holland Yesterday...

Drove about 400 miles to go get a new GPS Navigation system for the new Volvo XC90. This thing is so cool ! Huge screen

Retails for 1999 euros (2475$) here in Belgium, got it for 1400 euros (1730$) in Holland.

I'll drive 400 miles for a 745$ profit any day !

Nice man. No more bitching about how expensive it is to live over there. If you can afford toys like that, you can't be hurting too bad.... : :

I've seen this one up close before, a buddy in PA has one....pretty sweet: http://www.pioneerelectronics.com/pn...850099,00.html

In-dash pop out screen, plays CD, MP3, and DVD, plus XM Satellite ready. Damn, why wasn't I born a spoiled rich kid.....

Now if it was less expensive to live here, I would be able to afford even more toys :

As long as you take into account your salary will be taxed at 55%+ and you pay 21% Tax on anything you buy, along with property taxes, garbage taxes, water taxes, car taxes, bike taxes, it's not so bad....

The weed is great in Holland, but the beer is better in Belgium.

BTW I heard they are thinking of classifying Dutch weed as a hard drug, because the THC content has become so high through selective breeding.

Foreign weed has on average 6,6% THC (the active substance in weed). Dutch weed now has 15,2% THC on average...

That's some good shit

That wasn't directed at you. More like wishful thinking on my part! :



I still find it hard to believe your salary is taxed at 55%. I mean I think ours is what, around 30-35%?? But 55%...damn, that's harsh.
