My '01 Viggen convertible's steering column only does the reach adjustment, NOT the height. This is the way all 9-3s are to my knowledge. At least all Viggens are. The plastic scratching on the interior concerned me as well initially, but now that it's so scratched that it all blends together it's completely unnoticable. Not sure if that makes sense or not. Another example, my wedding ring is brushed platinum, but it keeps getting so worn that it's completely shiny now no one will ever know it was originally brushed. There's no point in taking it back to the jeweler to have them buff/brush it again if it's just going to keep getting shiny in a couple weeks. Just my .02.
