Here is my wife's 9-5 Aero (w/ standard trans)

Sorry it is so dirty... It is winter here in the Great White Nord...

Trunk area is the size of a SUV... it gets the mileage of mid-size sedan (27mpg).. It has a nice interior with the comforts of a decent European car.... Engine with high-pressure turbo produces 250hp/270ft.lb.

We like it... She even better than I....

No, these wheels were not standard. The PO bought them, since he wanted 17's. These are the winter wheels, and I also got a set of Mille Miglia rims with summers. I actually like the winter wheels better, and may have them swapped in the spring.

This is a web pic of the summer wheels.



These are the wheels it would have come with, since there is still a 15" spare in the car. I don't know what he did with the rest of them.

Spare: at least the E46 has a space for one.. Good luck in the E90's...

Better yet though on the E34 they had an M5 Touring oh yeah.....

Got a 530D, yes diesel, and it's a ripper, faster than anything but the big V8 version or M5 and returns 38-50mpg

I have been thinking of getting an Aero. The best I can afford is one with about 90k on it. Some research and I think the reliability with those miles may be better than Passat and Jetta? Considered Volvo V70 but the Aero looks better. Do you think with Saab gong into BK that it will reduce parts availability on older models?

It should certainly reduce their selling prices. I understand you can now buy new ones for 1/2 price.
