Now that winter tires are on, I’m ready for a very mild Ohio Winter. 🤣

You don’t really want to drive on your summers when the temperature gets below 45°F anyway. In NJ I swap my tires around mid-April and mid-November.

Yeah, that’s why I was searching last Saturday from the dealership at place to get the winter tires put on, lol. driving on them today. I can definitely notice much better traction on the cold pavement.

Yea sometimes when it gets cold out before I swap my tires I have to remind myself not to drive like a dummy.

Since you're looking at the Ioniq 5N, may I throw the Kia EV6 GT in the ring. The N line and GT share a platform. i think the EV6 has slightly less HP and a slightly longer range. But seems similar and worth checking out both. I ended up not being able to justify the EV6 and got the 2023 Niro EV early last year. But I really love that car and have a friend with the EV6 that I lust after whenever I see him. And that he loves. Given your range of price points I'd consider both!

One word of caution, my 2023 Niro EV has an absolutely obnoxiously loud reverse beep. It sounds like I'm reversing an 18-wheeler, not a hatchback that regulations say shouldn't be totally silent. Since they share a platform it's probably worth being sure to check that reverse sound in test drive for either brand!

The electric is SO fun to drive. I'm all in on the constant torque curve.

Probably should have kept reading there @mdl.

    • Day 72. Spent a long time hitting balls into the net working on a left wrist bowed at impact. Playing around with grip, backswing, and feelings to get it there. My hands hurt 🙂
    • Today, #5 par 3 playing 175 with a little help, I hit 6 iron to the fringe. With a front pin I hit an uphill/sidehill putt that entered the low side of the cup for birdie.  The Challenge is complete! This is the first year I actually made it! When you get down to a couple of holes it is so hard not to think about it. Through today, I have birdied all 18 and have eagled 2 par 5s.  All scores were from the blue tees (72.1/135).  Scorecard - The Legacy Golf & Tennis Club Scorecard Championship Course Scorecard 9-2023 Scorecard Yellow Course Click for printable Yellow Course Scorecard   For those interested, we had a US Open Qualifier this year and even par got you into a play-off (Medalist was -3, a couple at -1 and then 6 at E and the other 65 or so golfers at over par). Henry Grillo did a You Tube Video of his experience which highlighted the experience.
