Put some snow tires on it and enjoy the car. No wonder you're thinking about selling it; you've kinda crippled it by not getting a winter set.

Continental Wintercontacts aren't super expensive. Get a cheap set of wheels and off she goes. 2018+ Mustang would be neat, but you'll end up in the same place you are now during the winter, even if you did put snow tires on it. The Golf R is a great all-season car.

I ran into the same boat since I didn't put my winter set on the Subaru this year. Went to leave for NY, felt all the ice on the ground, and said "nope, I'm gonna end up in a wall doing 80 on the NJ Turnpike" So I drove my Malibu.

I've driven the Subaru in some of these 15 degree days. Haven't really had much snow so not much ice, but they've held up surprisingly well thus far. I just take it super easy.

Winter isn't the issue. I was doing the same thing before the snow fell.

Put the Golf R up for sale today.

Torn on what to replace it with if it sells. Cars on the short list are:

1. C6 Corvette (Grand Sport or ZO6 preferably)
2. Cayman S
3. 911 S

Does the Cayman S still not come with an LSD?

I'd be looking at a 2009 or around there, and I believe they all had ELSD. I don't hear any complaints about it, but there are also a million nannies working in the background on the Porsche's anyway.

I have a track car, so this would just be a fun driver. Don't think it would bother me either way.
