On a serious note, IF I was to move there, where should I be looking? I know where the companies are but what are the cool (yet affordable?) places to be around?

My wife and I love Raleigh and the triangle area in general. I think it's kind of where we would like to end up long term.

Depends if you're looking around Charlotte, or around Raleigh.

I think I'm going to go pick these wheels up this weekend. I've always wanted Oz Superturismos but I found a set of these for a good price with new tires. Thoughts? I am not in love with them but screw the stock wheels, they make me sick.

Those are nice & sell for a pretty penny. Somewhat light, for OEM, BUT they seem sorta fragile as I've seen a lot bent (easily)

Lots of extremely cheap houses on the market with suspiciously fresh drywall and paint.


But hey, at least it never snows here.

Thanks for the tip, I'll try to stay away from potholes. I got them for a pretty good deal.
