I'm in the market for a 9-3 Linear or Arc, but is there any body differences between the two besides a lower lip/fog lights? It seems like the Arc has a different hood and side fenders as well. I'm not sure. ;oops:
My dealer upgraded my linear wheels with the arc for free. They had them on a loaner linear...see if your dealer can do the same...I like the arc wheels better, but they're a pain in the butt to clean.
I like the painted skirts, my last two Saabs had the black plastic ones and they faded after a few years, it was the only thing on my 9-5 that never looked right.
If you can afford the extra money the Arc is the car to get.
