Default Wheels on the Commerative Edition.

Could someone please post some pictures of the wheels up close. I was wondering what they looked like. Is the lip just polished or does in kind of go in on the directional rims.

Thanks Kevin

Er, according to its own Specials page was the Ruby not EQUALLY as powerful?

While I completely agree with you, that is an attributed quotation from SAAB Net. I should perhaps point out that inaccuracy as a second paragraph ... well, thinking about it (and not to micturate on anyone's bonfire) ... the 8V Type M was actually the highest performing classic SAAB 900 ever at 195 BHP; more so than the Super Turbo of 1979.

Mr Pedantic
I think you'll find that, other than true one or two offs, the Ruby was the most powerful c900. It has the same power as the Carlsson, but with a cat fitted, so technically you are right.

... as did the CETs.

Nick is right - the quotation is inaccurate (misleading, at best) and the page needs addressing to point that out. 185 BHP with cat makes the CET and Ruby the same power (which was Nick's point), so the CET cannot be the most powerful built. Shhh! But, I think the author was only considering American cars ... you know what they're like
