I have just "upgraded" - if you pardon the phrase, my Saab 9000CSE V6 for a newer Audi A6. I love my 9000 (I still have it). It is a great car, hence why I enjoyed "doing it up". It is a superb, solid cruiser, with comfort, performance and toys. The Audi is my dream car (and fits my criteria for now), but the Saab was a joy to drive these last 3 years. Grant
