(ortography and such) also there is a very good german saab forum, which might be the reason why alot of germans rather just read this NG and post in that forum (http://www.forum-auto.de). Of course i can understand why you speak so much english in your country, you have been overwhelmed by power of the great USA and why should a country that just produces cheese and weed have its own language anyways ;-) no, really, i dont think this has anything to do with languages and besides that saab drivers tend to be somewhat more unique and smarter than most other people, so its more likely that they know more languages.
