It's coming, 2012 9-3 will be what you're looking for. At what price who knows. I think the new 9-3 will come as a hatch, a vert and sedan. I hope they don't bring a wagon instead of a hatch but...

Cost and TPMS

Did you end up going with a 17" package? Did they include the TPMS monitors, and if you don't mind me asking how much was the total?
Thanks,

No worries, he's not wrong. I could start a new thread, probably would have been the right thing to do. Chilling here in New England today won't be hard.
