I now have a 2011 9-3 Aero 2.0 and just had the Map Tun Stage 1 kit installed which makes my car plenty fast. To answer a few of your questions:
The wheels will not fit as the Turbo X must have 18" or larger due to the brakes. We invested in a set of snow tires and my dad has been switching them on and off each winter.
iPod integration is not easy on these models. The bluetooth came in 2009 and I absolutely LOVE having that on my current car.
Ride of the Turbo X is even stiffer than the Aero 9-3. Truly special and amazing car, but you do have to put premium gas and if you do a lot of around town driving the mileage is not good (17 mpg average for around town).
Honestly, I think you will be happy with a 2.0 and see if you can find one with the premium package which gives it the memory seats, rear parking sensors, etc. All that being said, if you want one wait a few months because after the SOC 12 show in Iowa I will have the Turbo X on the East Coast if you want to buy it!
