Oh the memeber in question isn't an old Jallopy jockey like me, he has a 900, a 9000 and a 9-5 estate (that's how he was contacted intitially because of the annual care survey). You can still build a quality car on a more mundane platform. Look at the 9000 Aero compared to other marques on that platform, only the Alfa 164 V6 came close, but apart from sounding stunning, isn't a patch on the 9000. The 9000 was a Mercedes class car, as was the C900, NG900, C9-3 but 9-5 and the NG 9-3 aren't even up there with Rover I'm afraid (I'm someone who can remember Rover being spoken of in the same sentence as Jaguar, Daimler, Mercedes and look what happened to Rover when the class had gone). -- "Sorry Sir, the meatballs are Orf" The poster formerly known as Skodapilot.
