Hi there! I just picked up my new (well, new to me!) 1999 93. It's the 2 door hatch and was told it is supposed to be the "Sport Model". Do any of you learned folk have an idea what the horsepower rating is on this? I know the base model is something like 175 or 185 but I was led to believe by the seller (a very good friend of mine) that my car was 210 or something like that. It's turbo charged and so on, just not sure how big the stable is! Also, are there SAAB websites etc where I can find out more info on the car. And, finally, is buying an extended warranty a good idea? I live in Toronto, Canada, in case that makes a difference. I've been told that it's a 50/50 chance I will need warranty repairs. The car has 71k and the warranty expires at 80k which should be in about 3 to 6 months for me. All efforts and help are greatly appreciated! John Rowley
