Hi saab fans, I am about to bid on a '95 900 S convertible in excellent condition (inside and out), but I am a little unsure about the value I am getting. Please weigh in. the car is auto transmission, 4 cyl 100K miles, no obvious mechanical issues (had my brother in law mechanic give it a full inspection). no rust or other obvious body wear. basic stereo w.cassette the owner wants 11K. she's a friend of mine, so I'm not inclined to bargain, unless I have a sense that it's excessive. book value on Kelly is 12,300, but on Black Book is 9800! there's another whole topic of debate...one book listing vs. another. I've seen these cars on various auction sites go for as little as 9500 with lower mileage. anyway, if you have thoughts about this deal, please share, along with rationale. susan
