HELP!!! What should I do, guys?

So basically it has come down to this. I have two badass job offers on the table and I have no idea what to do. I need some sound advice from the general Civic audience, because that's my scene.

I just moved back to Indy after college. Right now I work for a car dealership, selling new and used cars at a pretty popular dealership. I hate Indiana weather, but I just got a killer job offer that I don't know if I should pass up. The only problem is, it's in Indiana.

The Indiana job offer is as a bank manager in Indianapolis. The pay is salary, high 5 figure to low 6 figure a year job, plus other goodies, not to mention it's your typical 9-5er with weekends off, meaning drag racing at IRP is bound to happen.

On the other hand, I have a job offer to work for Spreen Honda as a car salesman in Loma Linda, California. Obviously this job is your basic sales job, commission based, yadda-yadda. But it's CALIFORNIA!! That and 90% of you are from Cali, meaning you could come to me and let me get you a badass deal on your next project car/daily driver/grocery getter when you knock some chick up.

I'm weighing the pros and cons, as should you, guys. Help me!!

Do it for the money but get stuck in Indiana? Or do it for glory and live in California?

Stay in Indiana. Car salesman jobs are known for having high turnover rates. You Cali dream probably won't last as long as the Indy job.

Yea man, stay in Indiana. California is just a great illusion that turns sour for most people. A six figure job is awesome, it will teach you a lot, and it will look great on your resume for later in life.

Agreed, stay in Indiana. Unless you are really good at being a shady car salesman, it isn't worth it and you will end up selling *** on Hollywood Blvd.

take the bank job. cali isn't all it's cracked up to be. besides, you can always vacation here if you like seeing as you'd be making around 100,000 a year.
