I don't find that I do what you suggested very often since there are not all that many yield-n-go opportunities. I do see that as I am coming up to a stop, there is a split second where I am clutching the car to move into neutral that my foot is also moving to the brake and there's a slight overlap. Again, I don't sit there with my foot on the clutch. I'll move back to the other point though... Getting that NG900/9-3 wheel well intrusion out of my way would definitely give me a little more stretch room. But the real foot well issue seems to be concurrent use of both pedals. Has Saab separated the pedals themselves further in the larger 9-5 ? Or do they keep the same pedal geometry ? If it's the same, we'll still have problems when we have snow boots on. Bob
