Subject: 1998 Saab 9000 CSE performance upgrades

Let's try this again. I submitted it a few days ago, but it never appeared. I am about to close on the purchase of a 1998 Saab 9000 CSE. For some years I've owned a 1991 Saab 9000 Turbo, so I am already familiar with this family of cars. I am also an avid sports car nut (and have been for over 30 years). I'd like to spice up my new car at least to the level of an Aero, and hopefully more. I love to drive and often go on twisty two lane roads for the fun of it. However, I also use my Saab for daily commuting and Interstate travel. I understand that the engine in the 98 CSE is the same 225 HP version as a 97 Aero, so I don't feel the need for much there. But if you have some cost-effective suggestions, I'd like to hear them. I'm more concerned about the handling. I understand that the 98 CSE does not include the Aero's lowered and sports tuned suspension. If I can spend about $1,000 (including parts and labor), what modifications to enhance performance would you recommend? Why? If I can spend an additional $1,000 (for a total of $2,000), what would be your next set of recommendations? Why? By the way, the car I'm buying is in excellent condition and has slightly over 40,000 miles on it. I look forward to your response. Kindest Regards, David White Burlington, VT
