It's been a couple of weeks since I bought the SAAB from EddyRamrod.

IMG_20171210_075629443.jpg

It was great to finally meet Eddy and I'm very happy with my purchase. I plan to get most or all of the faults ironed out so I can enjoy and appreciate it fully. Or iron out all the faults and then sell it on at a loss.
I used it for a week after purchase but the AX has been thrust back into action recently 'cos the SAAB's heater doesn't heat and the blower doesn't much blow.
I like the 900 at the moment, but I don't love it. Yet.
At the moment I'd take it for a £5.99 for two meal at Wetherspoons and give it a peck on the cheek on the way home, but that's about it.


The AX on the other hand is firmly entrenched in my heart. I absolutely flipping love it.

IMG_20171210_075711386.jpg

It's my best friend, my wingman, my little puppy. If I see an architecturally interesting building, or some renaissance art, or a fit bird, I want the AX to be there to share it with me. 'Til death us do part.

I dont reckon the saab will ever win your heart. It is too normal and too boring for a discerning shiter like you. 

 

I think that once it stops having a sore paw you will be bored of it.

I know what you mean about the Saab, all the ingredients of it should make it great, but somehow it is just ok. I think mine will be for sale in the spring.

If that Saab had been a manual i) it wouldn't have the dent in the driver's door/wing it) I'd probably still own it instead of the MGF.

My is a manual and a 185 bhp turbo and is fault free, but somehow is just not a car I want to keep.
