... plus you can actually give an M a run for its money on a good twisty road. Okay, the M outruns the Saab pretty easily... but more than once I've given a local guy with an M a run around a few roads and whipped him pretty nicely. Depends how well you drive it I guess :) PS, you don't see many Saabs around here in St. Louis either... although I agree they're more prevalent since the 9-3 and 9-5 became popular and advertised. I do get an awful lot of "thumbs up" from other Saab owners, especially owners of older ones when I cruise by in my black 96 900 Turbo. Okay, they're not "classic" Saab's... but for the price and performance they're unbeatable... plus maintenance-wise they're really not that bad. Just my 2c worth :) -- Gavin Haslett gavinhnopsamstl.com http://home.earthlink.net/~hackrat "Ahhhh... Mountain Dew... nectar of the geeks!"
