I had a Abbots lend car for a couple of days, a 9000 mildly tuned.
It was a joy to drive, I was pleasantly surprised the power was good and the motorway cruising was excellent
I'll look down my nose at the 9k no more
Great to hear that, kie ;)
It's always good to widen your horizons. I drove a C900 for the first time ever a couple of months ago and it was gobs of fun - much more than I expected. Shortly after that, I drove a 9-3 (tuned, of course) and was well impressed, and also with the tuned 9-5 auto I drove on the same day.
I too will no longer look down my nose at other Saab models.
I must admit, driving the 9000 Carlsson I owned for a day back from Maidenhead last weekend, even with the head gasket on it's way out, I was pleasantly surprised how well it handled, the power and comfort plus of course lots of toys!
That was the first time I had driven a 9000 Ummmmmmm.....
I know this may be blasphemy to some of you c900 owners, but I'm considering eventually trading my c900 for a newer 9000! Keeping my rims if I do, though!
