It handles a lot better then when i got it, espically with the new tires my pov was skewed by my driving my friends supercharged 318ti with koni springs and shocks I guess. It just sucks becasue I can never put the power on as early as you can with the ti. The saab makes up for it with more power then it knows what to do with
They are cheap. After 60K miles or so you can get them dirt cheap. Hell the nicer models are worth ALOT more than a bmw @ stock while they are loaded. If you see some C&D reviews they went better than the stock companies almost loaded.
After the miles hit though, the buyer is out. Which is horrid, but they know they are getting a quality ride.
Sucks they dont lease them anymore. That is why resale is low. Luckily I got one of the last leased cars so I know it was treated well.
