Another newbie

Hi all.

I live in Portsmouth, but work in Guildford, and for the last year, I have been driving a clapped out Mondeo (Complete with duct tape bumpers).

Recently, I inherited some cash, so decided to get a new car. Looked around, did loads of research, and decided on a Saab 9-3 diesel estate. Figured it would be good for the commute, and handy for the dog, as I have a large greyhound who comes out with me on days off.

So yesterday, set off to look for the car. Went to a garage, saw a lovely Saab, and arranged to test drive it today.
On the way back home, the wife and I decided to stop off at one more garage. Spoke to the salesman outside, and went inside to keep warm whilst he got the details on another Saab they had in the lot.

As we walked inside, I saw something beautiful - completely impractical for my needs, but stunning to look at...

Sat inside it just for a laugh, ended up taking it for a test drive, and put a deposit on it there and then - Collect it a week on Monday.

My new Saab estate :
