2nd time Saab owner and we absolutely love this car! We looked at several convertibles and had to have a four seater in order to haul the family around (2 kids, 8 and 6) which limited our options. We chose this over the BMW 325ci for several reasons including performance, styling, quality, and dealer experience.
We chose the 5 speed manual with the 2.0T turbo - what a combination and when the turbo kicks in (about 2500 rpm) the acceleration is a rush! The car handles through the curves without any roll or pitch - it seems to hug them. The convertible top is very fast at less than 15 seconds up or down (nice feature is you can drop the top with the key while walking across the parking lot). When the top is up, the sound in the cabin is very good - very little road noise.
The premium sound system is excellent and you can hook up your iPod with the port in the console. Maintenance is included in the lease including all oil changes, etc (all I have to do is just drive the car).
Summary - my wife actually beats me to the garage in the mornings and now prefers to drive this over her car. This is a wonderful car and should be considered if you are looking at a convertible.
