Well 10,000 miles shouldn't be a deciding matter. Sunroof: just another weak point to look after- who needs it when you have AC? Leather? nice if in good condition but really just for show, I prefer cloth. Saabs doesn't rust, even if you scrape off the paint. I thought all Saabs had heated seats? Perhaps you should look around a bit more. I bought my 1993 CSE LPT privately in 1997. I first came across this car was on a dealer forecourt. Nice car in eucalyptus colour, but mileage was a bit high and leather a bit tatty, but this wetted my interest. Then I found a good'n in exchange & mart, same colour. Johannes
