Saab 9-3 Turbo

Wave Hello Everyone


I am starting to salivate (sorry...not very nice I know...) over the prospect of becoming an Alfa Owner: I have in mind a 156 Diesel...I have to save on fuel costs: but I want a car with some real character, which will offer driving pleasure, spirit and fun: I do 80 miles a day...

I would really appreciate it if folks could help me out and tell me what I need to look out for or understand about what it is like to live with this car...please...if I had a little more cash it would be a 159...but I think this is out of reach...

I drive a Saab 9-3 HOT Aero Turbo currently (on a 2000 plate) - it has just hit 100k and is not bad on fuel but I figure I could save 200 a month with a diesel 156!

Thanks...Best wishes Mjamezz
