Even Saab USA has abadoned the individualistic theme in advertising I still find one of compelling reasons to buy a Saab is the unquiue styling. For examples, nobody will mistake you as a neo-yuppie who would drive a Bimmer-3, luxo Camry/Maxima or luxo Passat, or a almost-made-it yuppie who would drive a Bimmer-5/E-Class, or an grown-up-yuppie who would drive a Bimmer-7/S-Class/luxo Toyota-Crown (I mean LS400). Besides, I wouldn't worry about some jealous low-life attempting to steal it or make some scratches when I happen to be a bad neighborhood, comparing to other cars I just mentioned. Saab should be congradulated if most their buyers of the new 9-5 are attracted to it because they like functions over forms. > They talk about the "less than memorable" styling in the Saab and then > forgive "mushy cornering" in the Audi because of the sheetmetal.....Huh.
