Thanks for everyone's comments. Bob, yes you are right with your comment, but I feel I have now got to the stage I can afford something "special", however I am only intending to pay the same as say a year old Mondeo, I intend keeping the car at least another 5 years and putting on at least another 100,000miles, My theory is that either a BM or Saab will still be worth more then than the mondeo ? If that is the case would it really be such an extravagance? And if it can provide some fun in the meantime so much the better. I have driven a couple of Saab's today, a 93 2.0 inj and a 93 2.0 lpt se auto, both very nice, and seemingly well cared for, the LPT having an oil leak from what looked like the head gasket ? this is now the second one I've seen like this is this common ? From driving I was surprised that both seemed to "shudder" more than expected, I am starting to think that the Saab offers better value and is a better passenger car, however the BMW is the "drivers car " ? need to drive a BMW next ....
