Cool 2006 Saab 9-2X related

Hey all. Here is a Saab dealership release that was received by the general sales manager at my nearby dealership on Sept. 9, 2005, and then Emailed by him to me:

2006 Model Year 9-2X Pricing

In an effort to assist you in managing your inventory, the following is a summary of the 2006 9-2X packaging, pricing and distribution strategy:

NEW FOR 2006!
q Linear name changed to 9-2X 2.5i to be consistent with other model nomenclatures. Aero model name remains the same.
q Packaging and equipment enhancements include:
o 9-2X 2.5i horsepower increases to 173hp (+8hp)
o 9-2X Aero turbocharged engine increases from 2.0 litre to 2.5 litre resulting in +3hp (230hp) and +18 lbs/ft low end torque
o All-season tires added to 17" alloy wheel option on Aero model
o Eliminated option constraint of Aero model with Moonroof and 17" wheels
o Moonroof is now a free-flow option on both models ($1200 MSRP)
o Revised Aero Sport Package combining 17" alloy wheels, all-season tires, and Xenon headlamps ($1450 MSRP)
o Simplified Leather Package replaces Premium Package on both models ($1095 MSRP)
o Simplified Aero exterior color combinations by offering 3 colors: Midnight Black Metallic, Arctic Silver Metallic, and Brilliant Red
q Simplified package combinations by eliminating Xenon headlamps, 6-Disc CD Changer, and Front Foglamps from 2.5i model

We are pleased to announce that 2006 model year starting MSRPs for the 9-2X remain unchanged even with the increase in engine performance! In addition, we have re-packaged popularly-equipped models in an effort to offer you more flexibility to achieve a competitive price point. The example below compares the 2006 popularly equipped models versus 2005:

q 2005 9-2X Linear with Leather and Automatic Transmission = $26,735
q 2006 9-2X 2.5i with Leather and Automatic Transmission = $25,333
Value Position = ($1,400)

q 2005 9-2X Aero with Leather, Moonroof, and 17" Wheels = $31,795
q 2006 9-2X Aero with Leather, Moonroof, and 17" Wheels = $30,695
Value Position = ($1,100)

Please note, the 2006 model year destination charge will now be consistent with other Saab vehicles at $720. Pricing will be announced to the public in September 2005.

Production for the 2006 Model Year will begin in October 2005. Contingent on your allocation, vehicles are planned to arrive at your dealership in the January timeframe. Your 9-2X allocation will be derived from your 12 month sales history of 9-2X.

I Emailed the same manager a few weeks ago, and the first couple/few models had just arrived. I had him check the brakes, and it doesn't seem that the Aero will be copying the WRX/Limited, using the 4-pot front and 2-pot rear (iron/aluminum, respectively) calipers from the former JDM/EDM STi models.

That's all I know. Anyone seen or driven one yet? I was going to go for a spin yesterday, but by the time I had time to go, it was late in the day and I didn't want to hit rush hour traffic on the way home.
