This is great for climbing hills and passing at highway speeds, but *terrible* for quick response and in-town driving with lots of shifts. Because of the way the engine blows off exhaust fumes when you shift (so I'm told by the service guy anyway), the turbo spins down almost INSTANTLY when you shift. Which means you have the long (~1.5-2.0 SECONDS) turbo lag after EVERY shift. If you want a snappy responsive car, the non-Aero 9-5 might be better. The Aero (at least in the US trim) also has higher horsepower and torque, 17" wheels, lowered and stiffer suspension, and a few other minor additions. Gary
