My reaction when I got a 9000 was how small it drove. Of course, I was coming from a Lincoln Mark VIII, so these things are relative. I liked the LPT in my 9000 better than the full turbo in the 900 I've got now. The LPT has much better low end torque, no turbo lag. It was well matched to the car. I had hoped to get another 9000 when the fool ran into mine, but couldn't find an affordable one. The 900 (1997 SE Talladega) actually feels bigger on the inside than the 9000. Not sure sure why. Headroom and footroom is the same, according to Edmunds and it's 3 inches narrower.
