Well its just not making financial sense for me to hold onto the Lotus anymore, I am 23 so I pay insurance and my regular car payment for a car that maybe sees the pavement once a week. Anyways, I have decided to sell, but what I havent decided on is what to get next. I figured I would turn to the midwesterners as I am looking for a car that will be compitent in the winters while still a great performer. I havent ruled out keeping my DD, but I wouldnt mind having a new car that can do DD and winters. If you have experiences or suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Not looking to spend more than $45k ish., under is of course always welcomed. Also I am not looking to buy brand new, anything 06+ is cool in my books. My front runner right now is a used M5.
