Regards housing, it will depend on what you are looking for in a neighborhood atmosphere. Each area has a unique personality. El Centro has been around forever and the other areas are nearer the Golden Zone and somewhat more modern. Also will depend if you are renting or buying and how much fixing up you plan to do or oversee. This is one of the advantages of renting for awhile. You can check all the areas out and talk to people that live in each one about the pros and cons. For instance, el Centro Historico is very charming and lovely, but the fact that some folks need garage space or even proper street parking sends them off to homes in other areas.
The FMT, FM3 questions are in the archives and articles here with some very good answers. The answer to this one really lies with you though, and what you plan to bring along in your move to Mexico and when. Some people come in on an FMT after selling everything up north and buy replacements here. (I know people that leave Mexico every few months to visit relatives up north or do business, and have never bothered with an FM3 for that reason) Some bring along everything plus the kitchen sink on an FM3 and Menaje de Casa. Lots of decisions to make.
