Subject: Re: Some 900se questions


Ive a 97 SE. Quick as a quick thing if that what you want. Manual great for open road, auto better for around town as the car wants to go 150km all the time. My partner had a head on with a 93 BMW 325 in her 900se. The BMW never returned. The saab, came back as good as new. We have had Saabs for 10 years and are currently driving our 5th one. We have changed the wind screen wipers a couple of times. No engine problems. Buy the car, and find some open road. Had some fun with a 911 S2 (1990). The porsche is quicker to 100kms but the 900se will then eat the porsche to 170 kms. Then germany wins.
