Natilie, Congrats on the new car. I hope you enjoy it for many years and miles. Please let me know how the car is after a couple of months. I am considering a replacement for my '92 and would be interested in your thoughts once the novelty wears off. I had a '95 SE that was very bad and I swore I'd never buy another Saab. But, I'm reconsidering. By the way, the car does not have to be named a gender specific name at all. Nor, does it have to be Swedish. My wife calls our pristine, slightly tweaked '94 turbo convertible "Belle Veloce". Which is Italian and translates loosly to "Beautiful Speed". Something to consider. Regards, Tim
