My current 9-5 is Cosmic Blue with Sand leather and I must admit I really like the light interior. My current thoughts are Black with Sand, after all black is the classic Saab Turbo colour. Alternates are Silver and Charcoal or Steel and Sand. The demo I drove earlier today was Black and Charcoal, but I felt the interior was too "dull". As to the dash... I was really anti the wood dash on my 9-5 SE but I've grown to like it. Hopefully I grow to like the silver dash of the aero, but I must admit I'm not immediately drawn to it. Iain
