Saab 9-3 and Opel Vectra are _NOT_ even close to being the same car, there are so many differences, besides almost all engine, interior, styling, chassis etc. they are just built upon the same project platform. if you read through this NG¥s archives you will find that this discussion happened alot of times already ;) actually the only new Saab i would accept would be a 9-5. i prefer a C900 over a NG900/9-3. bye Simon Putz
