Well, if I said my 9-3 SS was my last Saab, that might say a lot!

I had the 2.0lpt Vector Sport, on a 53 plate. Had all the toys and gadgets, I bought a lower mileage one to make sure it was good. But, just didn't stand up to the 9-5s I had.
Nothing serioulsy wrong with it, just a little let down. Interior trim was poor, suspension was hard and the overall ownership experience wasn't to my liking.
Having said that, my good friend has just bought a 58 plate TTid Aero and it seems pretty good!
9-5 Aero was an epic car. Loved it.

Always wanted a 9-3SS Aero, what plate have you got?

Moved over to the dark side

And loving it

I've got a 54 plate. I know what you mean about the hard suspension.........I used to think Alfa's were bad, but the Saab's suspension makes my Alfa feel like an S Class Limo !

And yes, the trim is very cheap and nasty......not at all what I expected from a Saab - they look like proper solid cars from a distance.

Your car ownership history is the mirror opposite of mine - I've had a number of Alfa's (3 156's, and a 159ti) and this is my first experience of Saab.

Brera 2.4 JTD

My 2.4 Brera went away with Manheim this afternoon after a 4 year lease.
I believe it is going south to Warwickshire.
Some minor chips to the paintwork classed as fair wear and tear.
Dent on the drivers side sill approx mid point - thumb size dent so there may be a charge for that otherwise NOTHING.
49,535 with one careful owner. It's had a few issues but nothing major.
New front discs at the previous service.
New coil spring on the rear right at the 4 year service last week, otherwise a clean bill of health.
If anyone is interested I can give you the reg.

FGA Contracts

Just been preparing my Brera for return next week. I had all four of my alloys repaired by Chips away and they did a good job. The four wheels, two dents in the bonnet removed and a small dent on each door removed cost 306 which I thought was quite good. Only took a day and Mike from Chips away offered to collect the car and return it, luckily I was able to get someone else to come with me. Good luck
