I'm thinking of chopping my 2000 9-3SE LPT convertible for a 9-5 - I need more space for both people and luggage. The question is, which one do I go for - having had a 185turbo 900 before, I would like more power than the LPT engine, but I dont think I can stretch to the Aero (250bhp..... <sob>.....) What is the 2.3LPT engine in the 9-5 like? Most I have seen and all the demonstrators I have come across here in the UK have been Auto, but I would prefer manual. Anyone got any experience of the new 5-speed auto? Or should I go for a late second hand Aero, rather than the newer model - though I have heard the newer 2002 9-5 handle better..... I'm being indecisive and vague at the moment. so any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks. H.
