I'm biased, but I like the 9-3 SE's a whole lot. The B205R is really smooth, and because it's an SE it gets the Viggen treatment with identical turbo and cross flow intercooler. 30mpg, stout 5-speed manual transmidsion, tons of room (still a hatchback)....It'll never handle well compared to cars that really handle well, but some mods can improve things. Their sweet spot is being good reliable utilitarian transportation with leather and heated seats and some surprisingly stout 50-70 passing acceleration.
