    Does it come with free hairdressing scissors ? :D

    Hehe, only joking, it looks really good. I still think Saab have yet to get back to the 900 Turbo days though - maybe the new 9's based on the 5-door Impreza platform should change their fortunes a bit.

    I think convertibles are largely misunderstood by a lot of people, unfortunately mostely by the "oh, that little 30k in the corner will do" people.

    Even if the weather is manky (not raining!) you can drive a convertible comfortably with the heaters on. When your in a convertible and you've got all the windows up your encased in your own little coccoon, I remember taking something to my brothers house in my mum's old convertible @ 11pm while it was cold with the heaters on... it was great.

    I wasn't under the impression that I'd bought an MX5 or Soft-Roader.... :p :D

    Why not? It's bright sunshine over here at the moment. As long as it's not raining, the lid will be down on Saturday! :thumb:

    Yep - and SAAB heaters :rock: Nice and warm, even when you have 100Km of headroom.... ;)

    I do that now with my M3.... top down, heat on full blast while its lightly snowing is probably the best drive ever taken in it.... or the looks people give you while driving through maine in the dead of winter with the top down wearing a t-shirt (heat in my M3 is wonderfully good)

    Well, we picked the car up last night. We were so long at the dealership (exchanging documents and signing forms and being shown what the multitude of buttons do) that by the time we got back home it was dark - so no piccys yet. I'll try and get some tonight after work.

    However, we where sad enough to have the top down on the way home! :thumb:

    She's a little corker though. :rock:

    Here she is:

    From the side, showing the funky 17" rims:

    Back:

    Side again, this time with the lid off:

    Rear with lid off:

    Saab's funky new key (no metal key bit!):

    Finally, a couple of movies:

    Roof being stowed. It's not the full sequence, but you get the idea.

    Nice Vauxhall, sorry SAAB.

    Just J/K that is one nice lump of metal, SAAB's just look bullet proof, but sleek.
