On the downside - the bonnet has become stone chipped due to use on the motorway. All chips have been touched in by myself or the previous owner. There are also a couple of scuffs/scratches on the bumper corners. See pictures. Again they have been touched in and are only visible from a close distance.

The interior has only one fault - a strange 5mm spot of wear on the drivers door next too the grab handle. Other than that the interior, including the leather is fault free.

The car is mechanically sound. The engine pulls as new with no hesitation. Without trying to drive especially economically I average (according to the trip computer) 33 - 34 mpg over a good mix of urban, rural and motorway. For the body there is no rust, the paint is bright and shiny. The alloys are in very good condition. The car falls outside of the new tax pricing based on emissions and will be I believe £190 per year.

In short this Saab has recently benfitted from a re-built gearbox ( I elected against a recon) the clutch has only done 19k, Drive belt, drive shaft and rear exhaust. The tyres are all Goodyear Eagle NCT5's currently showing ample wear having only done approx 17-18k. The ride comfort is superb. The performance is ample for any type of driving with the added assurance that there is a good amount of grunt for overtaking. As it is not the High Output Turbo model the parts and consumables such as tyres and exhausts are not prohibitively expensive, likewise insurance.

The car is available for viewing in Ashford Kent. I am about 3 minutes from J10 of the M20 and about 35 minutes from the M25.

Feel free to ask any questions. Just send me a Personal Message through this site. I will not ship to any country - no matter how desperate you are....Nor will I accept part exchange or payment in funnymoney. The car is advertised elsewhere.
