Better than it's WRX cousin

2005 Saab 9-2X Aero 4dr Sport Wagon (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 5M)
Purchased the car during in July 2005, and have been very happy with everything, except turbo lag. The 2006 model gets a larger engine and should fix this problem. The car performs very well, so well that in snow and ice I can punch the gas and the 9-2x flys off the line. I also like the interior, easy to read gauges and very supportive seats (much better than WRX seats), also I chose the cold weather package w/ heated seats. The WRX only offers heated seats w/ the limited package (a $2000 option on WRX)!!!
This is a very stealthy car! I exceed the speed limit often and don't get a second look when a cop hits me w/ radar! If I had the WRX, I am sure that I would get a ticket
1. fix the lag 2. Move the ignition key location, so the keys don't dangle on my leg. 3. A navigation option would be nice too.
