Subject: 1999 9-3 Lease question

Hello Saab fans: After 1,000 miles in rented Saabs(a 9-3 SE 5 door and a 9-3 convertible) I must simply have one of these terrific cars. Especially telling was the drive back on I 90 West when a 95 911 cabrio wanted to play. As you all know, it's a very satisifing driver's car. I feel that the Saab has real character and is a hoot to drive because it is a bit more demanding of it's driver than a Japanese car or a BMW or some such "sports sedan." For the month of September, Saab is offering a great lease on a 9-3 5 door with a sunroof, in dash CD and heated seats for approx $800 down and $280+tax a month for 36 month, allowing 12,000 miles a year. Which sounds like a very good deal to me. My wife's car is going back on it's lease in November and these numbers sound attractive enough to get the Saab now and have both cars during October. My questions to the group are: Are there any changes in the 2000 9-3's that you know of that make them better than the 1999 cars? Is the HOT 9-3 SE worth the premium? Does the extra 15 horsepower really make much difference ? Is it more "sporting" in character and a bit quirkier? Or is it fractionally faster and more money for stuff that doesn't matter that much to me (eg. leather seats, wood panel, etc...) I live in Santa Rosa, California which no longer has a Saab dealership. My choices are Downtown Saab in Oakland, or Bianco Saab/Cadillac (how's that for a combination!) in Corte Madera. Do any of you have any opinions on either of these dealerships. Any salesperson reccomendations? This is a very nice newsgroup. I look forward to reading it while I acquire and drive my next car. Thank you very much in advance Tom Frazer
