Default Hey Hey.. New guy from MN

Hey guys.. I am Justin from Woodbury, MN.. I am new to CL and was looking for an IS-F but am still debating.. thanks to Lexura1414 for answering my questions so far.

I found an awesome 2012 250 F Sport in FL.. but it's RWD and no navi.. so my questions are:

1. Are you all doing ok with RWD and MN winters with say Blizzaks? I just sold my AWD Evo but that had all seasons only. So just wondering how it might compare.

2. How difficult (assuming it's possible), is to install the OEM NAV systern?

Anyone local selling their car??

RWD sucks in winter if this is your DD. I would recommend an AWD and the OEM Navi would be way expensive to install.

1. Personally had bad experience with just backing out of my garage in 1inch snow, stuck! lol "Stretched tires tho" Heard you can do ok with a good set of winter tires from others

2.If you really looking for navi, be patience and find one with it

3. Welcome to CL and happy moddin

Welcome! There are people on here rocking rear wheel drive cars during winter. But MN winters are damn intense most of the time. So, AWD IS250 or 350 would be ideal. But if RWD is your preference, make sure you pair them with Blizzaks or any winter tires.
