We currently have essentially both of the cars you are talking about at the moment (9-5 aero estate and 9-3 convertible, 229 bhp conversion with suspension, brake and wheel upgrade) and I'd agree with Fred that they are very different and will give you totally different experience depending on your use. As for turbo lag in the 9-5 just make sure you drive the car before you buy it. I test drove three before deciding on a 50000 miler and none of them had any noticable lag - and you very much CAN have fun in a 9-5 aero on the back roads. I'd also happily take the 9-3 from one end of the M4 to the other without a thought. They are both fantastic cars, I'm sure you won't be disappointed either way.
