Do you consider Saab 9000 sales to be insignificant ? Of course, you can't sell something that doesn't exist can you ? Maybe you missed that 'clue' ? Furthermore, is sales volume the only figure of merit your understand ? How does Aston Martin for example do in that regard ? I expect you think they must be rubbish becasue they don't sell very many. I suppose that probably makes the Mondeo the best car around too. Graham
