I drove one today. I have a '94 SET. I would GLADLY trade it for the VIGGEN. I pushed it very hard through a tight turn and it stuck like glue! The .83 skid pad results make this one tight cornering cookie! As far as acceleration, the Viggen is very responsive. Gunning it uphill in 4th gear was close to low-level flying! It did sputter a bit when I first drove it off the lot...It had barely any gas, and hadn't warmed up yet...I scraped the front spoiler too...Woops! This thing is low...Everything else was as expected. The Seats are very soft and the bolsters aren't too aggressive. The blue paint turned some heads! The clutch was like buttah!..I'll have sweet dreams tonight...Might wait a few months for the 2000 Viggen...Seems silly to buy a 99 now. Anyone know when the 2000 Viggens arrive?
