Job offer in Wisconsin!!?!

My wife and I were offered jobs in kohler, WI. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would consider moving to Wisconsin. I have lived all over the east coast, from south Florida to NY.


Never lived in the Midwest is a 335 practical? Do I need to trade on an x5? No idea what to expect weather wise.

Snow tires and you will be fine. Some day's you might be stuck due to snow depth.

Snow tires + slight change to driving habits and you're good. People drive beastlier cars in the Midwest winters and make it through just fine.

Worst case, pick up an old Jeep for cheap. ZJ's have sucky transmissions but most have been rebuilt or replaced by now. Most of the remaining 4.0L I6's are fairly solid and easy to maintain.

Might want to take up golf. Easily one of the best places in the world for it. Very little else to do but you're not that far from Green Bay and Milwaukee. We've vacationed there and will go back. GL

Thanks for info. I do golf, and course access will be a perk with this position!
