Smile Been there, done that.

Am very happy for you and you must be thrilled at getting your new really good looking car.
You must have put a few bottles on ice

You will end up spending hours on this forum and will find tons if invaluable information here. You should try using the "search" feature for the whole forum or for each section. It works well and helps pin-point a question/problem that a member has already encountered. You can then, if necessary "pm" that member for more detailed info.

Cheers to your new SAAB.
David

No apologies needed. You should be applauded for having posted the photo of you car so fast.. Millions of hours and I still have yet to post a photo. My first 9-3 was similar to yours but 4 door. The newer SS model has some advantages but I really miss the bumpers! Once I got rammed in the back-side by a brand new Fiat. His front end was destroyed, he was in tears and I was trying to find a scratch on the bumper

my dad had a 03 9-3 SS in vector trim with 17" aero alloys in cosmic blue - i loved that car - but he sold it cos gettin older he thought the ride was too harsh ! although it was in the rather less refined 2.2 Tid. He still weaps at the depreciation he suffered. 10k in 15 months to be precise.

I have the same car your dad had except the colour.
BUT even with the 17" wheels the drive is softer than my previous '98 9-3 SE. And my wife, who is a lousy passenger (frog), was the first to say so.
