Very nice car (a lot more modern even in basic cloth trim) than my 900. There is talk I've heard that a 9-5 is just a GM'd 9000, so it may not be as different for you. the Aero had the 2.3 FPT engine, and the loverly Recaro leather "Batwing" seats that look more like they came out of a racing car or a good spec Porsche. the LPT I had was loverly and torquey lowdown, something I miss now I'm back in the 900 (full presure turbo with T3 lag). I imagine that a decent Aero with it's Trionic setup, and reasonable turbo should give more power than a good T16 (somewhere arround the 225-235 mark I think). if you like your autos then look for a 2.3 Griffin. Plus getting a decent 9k instead of more basic 9-5 should give you a few quid to cover any insurance needs, and even for a celebratery take away/out meal. -- The poster formerly known as Skodapilot. http://www.bouncing-czechs.com
