NG9-5 prices are incredibly tempting but...
Since there's no dealer network anymore, can an indy even support a NG9-5 from a software / electronics standpoint?
Getting body panels after a wreck will be almost impossible. What if road debris takes out your grille, fogs, or a headlight lens? I think you'd be SOL getting any of those parts in a timely manner.
And I'd call my insurance company to see if they'd even insure a NG9-5. They may not want to take the risk. Ditto for any finance company if you choose to get a loan. What's the value of the car as collateral, etc?
Either way, with a NG9-5, I think you'd almost need a second car as backup. Not so much with a NG9-3.
