Thumbs down 2008 9-3 Aero Suspension Upgrade?

Does anyone have suggestions for suspension upgrades on a 2008 9-3 Aero (255hp)?

I just bought my new SAAB after having enjoyed a 2005 Aero for four years. Suspension seems a lot softer on the 2008 and the steering MUCH lighter. The new car is smoother and much quieter but perhaps less fun to drive!!!

Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated. In case you're wondering, I did not test drive it first. I assumed it would have improved over the 2005 or at least remained the same...
