There maybe others that think the new 9-3SS is better than their C900, but then I would just like to say it's different. I think the problem is, is that Saab is "replacing" Saabs with other Saabs instead of simply "adding" to a fleet. If Saab kept C900 or NG900s for that matter, or both of them and kept upgrading them then adding the 9-3SS to the fleet, everyone would be happy. It would be nice to see a 2005 C900, 2005 NG900 along with the 9-3SS and 9-3 SportCombi. Now that would be good! I am trying to collect all the Vides now to keep the passion alive for myself and others! Saab Guy
