Honestly, if they >changed the grill, you'd have no way to tell it's a SAAB. While the "new" Saabs could be more distinctive in some *new* way, many of us find the classic look is classic ugly. Sure it's different, but so is the Buick Rondevous. The NG900/9-3 is an improvement, although only the convertible is actually attractive. IMHO, the new 9-3 is a step in the right direction. >What will be my next car? Probably an Audi or BMW. Although the new 93 >looks promissing, it's just not that much of a draw for die-hard Saabers >(and the last 8 years of Saabs have IMHO looked terrible). Oh, Audi and BMW... now there's a distinctive look. Unless you're talking about a TT or M3, they're just another face in the crowd. Bob
