Subject: Re: Viggen vs base 9-3 differences?

Viggen Engine is a 2.3 Turbo. Basic engine is a 2.0 Injection and then there's the 2.0 Turbo. If you're only after the performance, then it would make most sense to buy a 2.0 Turbo and add the performance bit's yourself, which, I reckon, would get you Viggen performance for less than the 16,000 extra the Viggen would cost. Although those Viggen seats are very nice... That said, there's a 'standard' 2.0 Turbo up at my local dealer, that's had about 15,000 worth of Hirsch Performance Kit chucked at it, to bring it up to the same spec as a '9-3 Troll' Specs? Up for 19,995, 11,000 odd miles, 260BHP 350NM, 17" alloys, 4pot callipers + cross drilled discs front. Uprated suspension, turbo, exhaust etc. Quicker than a Viggen, well, quicker than anything short of a tuned Cosworth or a 911 Turbo...
