Default What are the main differences

I dont know much about saabs, and i just joined the forum. i am currently car shopping, and i have found two saabs i liked. but i dont know anything about the mechanical/performance aspects of the saabs. can anyone tell me what are the main differences between the 9-3 linear 2.0l turbo and the 9-3 aero 2.0l turbo.
From what i can tell its just cosmetic differences, but is there anything else? Im more of a nissan guy, so i dont know much about these cars

the Aero is a V6 actually..a more agressive look to it also.

True, recent 9-3 Aeros are equipped with the V6. But I think the original poster is asking about a 9-3 2.0l turbo Aero, which may mean that he is shopping for a used car. There are many here much more qualified than I, but my take on the formerlinear/arc/aero lines are that the difference between the linear and arc was primarily in level of handling and then there would be a step up in power to the aero.
