Two friends (who would probably both describe themselves as 'conservative drivers') both prefer turbo'd Saabs, having owned both. In the UK, Saab dealers are famous for charging ridiculous prices, the price you quote suggests the same happens in the US ;-) Personally, I'd get a Turbo (mine's done 203,000miles - original Turbo, no signs of wear or failure), but make sure you get it serviced regularly - oil changes are crucial. No-one has come back to me on my idea that there may be other increased running costs - more expensive brake pads/discs/shocks etc (but I think it's true). It doesn't worry me much, and I don't think it's significant, but I thought I'd mention it.... Good luck !
