Well when I bought my new Aero conv and posed the GM Question the response I got was............ "It is like giving material to a Saville Row tailor and a tailor for George Asda. Although the material is the same the outcome is very different" In addition, I believe GM have also left the Saab guys pretty much alone, to do there thing - so the calls of "It's a Vectra mate" holds little truth, but the little truth it does hold I can live with. Thoughts anyone........... On Fri, 18 Aug 2006 23:28:37 -0400, Dr. Richard A.
