The best advice I can give you is check the property tax rates in whatever towns you're looking in. There are some that will hit you pretty hard in NH.

As for a car, you're going to find out pretty quick that there are a lot of roads in the area that suck, particularly for a lowered car. LOL Welcome to New England.

ALL OF THIS. Seriously, the roads blow dick. But the property tax comment is very, very good advice. They whack people like crazy in a lot of the bordering areas with Mass. You'll love the two seasons we get here; winter and August.

Anyway, if you do move definitely hit me up, I'm in Boston. I'd love to get some more J's at New England Dragway

To be honest I don't know the answer to that one. People complain about various areas around there but I've come to the conclusion that people tend to be way too hard on areas that aren't major cities. Personally, they can keep the city and I'll take the 'burbs and rural areas any day.

I'm in Maine, but very close to NH. I'm only two towns from Rochester, NH. Southern NH is very nice, and a good mix IMO between that rural feeling and still having everything pretty close by.

My comment about the roads sucking for lowered cars wasn't a seasonal thing. It's the winter weather that's hard on the roads, but a lot of the roads just suck all the time...pot holes, bumps, repairs everywhere. LOL. Just gotta know where not to drive with it.

Got ya lol
So I got to ask all you guys are probably gonna get a giggle out of it.
Winter/ snow should I get a second set of tires for the winter or is that a myth lol

It's true the roads really are that bad. They get so bad so fast that they often just give up on repairing them.

For snow tires, the best thing you can do is grab a set of 14" stealies and put whatever snow or all season tire you like on them. It's all about skinny tires with deep tread and ground clearance. My last J was an 01 5-speed and it worked GREAT in the snow with 14's and new cheap primewells from firestone. Once the snow gets to the point where it's hitting the front bumper or the bottom of the car just park it and walk.

Here's an idea. Sell me your hood before you leave! I understand about the heat., but damn it's pretty nice here most of time.... I love driving my car all year around,; the thought of potholes, gray skies, salt and 20 degree weather, remind me to why I left IL two years ago.....Good luck with the move!!

And more new england advice.. Remember that if your vehicle is damaged by a pothole or other problem with the road, you can contact that municipality and get reimbursed.

Just thought of these ones going over my car last night
What are emissions like over there?
I have no cat and when I had my car tuned I had em set it to where it wouldn't trip a light.
Only light on is air bag and service >:0

Window tent what's the limits? If you can have any.

Yikes lol. I believe it goes by county in NH so you'll have to google that and see what you can find. I know mass is tough but I'm sure NH is more lax, at least in some areas. Just remember, you don't need turn signals in New England

For the no cat, you could always just space out the rear sensor instead of turning codes off. That works most of the time.

Emissions aren't bad in NH. They suck in MA, though. ME is OK too.
With no cat, you may get rejected on the fact, and not the codes. A lot of places will fail you for removing any part of the emissions system, regardless of the sniffer test.

Tint is typically no darker than 50% on the driver and passenger windows, nothing below the A1 line on the windshield, and nothing below 35% on the rear windows, but that does vary by area.

Any warning lights will usually fail you, so you should check those out.

Yeah come up to the primeland! Where not only are the taxes too high but the weather can change in a minute too! In all honesty when these guys have said is all true... if you know how to drive in snow you will be fine.... for the most part tey are pretty well taken care of... but inspection is a lot harsher up here... oh and enjoy motor vehichle!

Ryan! You do need to get back down here to pa!
