Hi all,

as you probably tell from the title, I'm not a SAAB owner yet...however I'm close to become one!

I wasn't sure where to ask about the particular car I'm looking to buy, so Ithough this would be the perfect place to get some useful feedback!

I visited a SAAB dealer yesterday (I'm in Cyprus) and here is what I get:

9-3 Aero (Sedan)
-Alloy wheels
-5 spoke 7.0"X17"
-Leather/textile Sport seats
-Interior trim brushed aluminium look
-ESP
-16" disc brakes
-Rear spoiler
-Sport chassis

...for the price of 27.900 (CYP pounds), around 56.000USD (add 3000USD for automatic gearbox)
Do you find the price reasonable? I know is a different country, different laws and taxes etc...does it worth the price? I need some opinions here:)
What would you add if you were to buy that car? Owners of that car...what do you find useful to add??

And one last thing. I was told by the dealer that SAAB is going to stop producing Aeros with 2.0lt engines and that they are forwarding their last orders for the 9-3 Aeros 2.0 (210BHP). Alternatively he said that SAAB is currently in the process of producing the Aeros with 2.8 V6 engines....and of course he suggested that I have be fast and get one of those that have already been ordered.
Comment on this please....

Thanks a lot!
Jim

Hard to say... not sure but if the price of the car seems reasonable then I would do it. Living in Cyprus I would get a convt.

The car you are looking at is a great car. Quick, safe and good on gas, which by the way what is the cost per liter out there.

Cyprus car dealer, thats scaring. :cheesy:

I'm was bit sceptical about that "no more 2.0 Aero's" story. But then I looked at information over here, and there is no 9-3 2.0 Aero Combi mentioned what so ever.

But overall is it a good deal or not, buying a new car outside of certain countries usually means that there is very little or no room for price manoeuvre. Especially if there is no dealer competition.

I'm not a 9-3 owner but if I would live there I would think twice about the color, because black color sucks more sunlight, unless you want a bonnet grill. Then again, colors like silver and parchment silver most likely costs extra over usual black.

Thanks for the comments....


however, after some serious thoughts, I decided that the price for a new 93 Aero is higher than my budget.

So...I found someone that imports cars from the U.K. and he told me that he is waiting for a 93 Aero sedan (early 2004), full extras to come. The price...17000 pounds (that is around 34000 USD). The thing is that the car is a bit damaged on the doorside (involved in an accident) and thats why it sounds so cheap. It will come fixed though and I will be able to have it checked by a specialist.

Does it sound like a good deal?
Would also like to know any major differences between the Aeros (early 2004) and the new ones.

Cheers
