Excellent - that's good news! Thanks for your reply What should I lookout for when buying a Saab 9000 Aero? The body looks excellent, the engine has 100,000 kms (60,000 miles). Also, the dealer has agreed to take my 97 BMW 328i as an even-trade for the '97 Saab. Am I getting ripped off? My BMW has 130,000 miles and will need $1500 in repairs soon.
