Hi all. I used to have a 9000 up until about 15 years ago, then had a long period with company cars. Then I needed a cheap car and a Saab 9-5 SE auto came along, and loved it. Swapped this and a bundle of cash for a 2005 9-5 Aero that had been taken up to Stage 3, with a big brake conversion, suspension upgrade and lightweight wheels. Had it a couple of years now, but only increased the mileage by about 4,000 miles (now 78,000). Love the car and the 3rd gear acceleration!
