Well, maybe so.. As I usually wait ten years before buying a particular model (like I said - cheap and sassy SAAB's are my bag) - so I'll let you know how they held up then.. :) .. > About the bumpers.

That is really very interesting - but as the local SAAB dealer won't let me crawl around his floor model at any length as I "might damage the display car" - I'll gladly take your word for it.. Whatever the case, I like not having Air Bags and integrated bumpers. It is almost worth writing most cars off instead of repairing or replacing either in the event of a minor altercation in a parking lot.. your pal J dexter http://www.dexterdyne.com/ All tunes, no ads, no news, no weather, no phone in, All the Time..
