99 9-3 diesel, 30,000 miles so far without any reliability problems, although I have had a lot of irritation with rattles, buzzes and creaks - not what you expect from an (otherwise) quality car. My biggest gripe is with the front foglights - they seem particularly vulnerable to stone chip damage, I've lost 3 in a year (after the first I've stopped replacing them). They should be polycarbonate.
