Default Newbie here. What year 900 turbo convertible to buy?

I will be buying a 900 turbo convertible very soon. I have it narrowed down to a 91, 92, or 93 model. From what I have read, the 92 may be the best choice. Any suggestions I need to look for when choosing, or is there another year that might be better? From reading, the 92 has the most standard equipment, and the 93's were starting to scale back, Is this right? Thanks

Hey man, welcome to the site!

All of those years are quite similar in design...so take a good look round, and use mileage and body condition as your main priorities. Try not to get an automatic, especially if the car is a turbo. There's an excellent buyer's guide in the Features section...

Good luck!

Default buyers giude

I found the top gear buyers guide very helpful - http://www.saabcentral.com/features/...s/top_gear.php I printed it out and dragged it around with me. I also find that the humble fridge magnet can detect hidden body damage easily. the magnet wont stick where there is body filler under the paint work.
