I'm tempted to get cheeky and go and ask for a test drive. If I had a healthy windfall I'd be more than tempted to buy one  8)

You could probably buy the factory.

Well, if I bought the factory, we would ALL have one  :)

They're very tempting at these sorts of prices though it would only make sense if you planned to keep for about 5 years due to the crippling depreciation :(

I think that that is expensive....

I was at the Saab Owners Club AGM at Cambridge Saab.  They had some 9-5's at under 20k.  I think they were delivery mileage only.

blimey: those prices are pretty impressive !    Not sure the saloon would do for me (currently with an '09 estate & half considering an XC60) but it is tempting to take a closer look......

cheers!

I was looking at a 95 only on Wednesday in Oxford SAAB. They have a 2010 diesel with less than 7500 on it for 17450

I dropped into Oxford again the other day to pick up a couple of plastic grommets that I found missing from my scuttle trim.
This time I had rather more time on my hands to take a real good look at the new 95, and had Miha in tow with me - she loved it too. But more importantly I was stunned to find the price of the new car in the showroom had dropped and was now less than 29K!!  :o 8)

I apologise in advance to the future buyer of this car for drooling all over it  ;D

I now see this same car parked at Mac's Garage pretty much every day, I drive in to Witney, so it must be someone that works there.  :)

It always turns my head  8)

This one is 15k, though fairly leggy at 40k.

I'd love to have one now that they are coming down to my sort of prices, though I'd be concerned about parts and insurance.

The only trouble with that is that I'd much rather trust a petrol Saab engine to last far longer than any of the Saab models with a diesel lump in them....

Saw a silver one leaving Evesham on Sunday. Would have flashed the lights in salute, but it really caught me by surprise!

I was then amused by my 6 year old son craning his neck out of the rear window to get a glimpse of it disappearing in the opposite direction, towards Stow

Saw one in my home town yesterday. I would have flashed or waved, but I was in the Audi and they would probably assume I was being a nob! So I didn't. Nice car - they do stand out..

I think it is quite stunning, and a much nicer looking car than the Jag

There are two Aeros for sale near me - one is a 2.0T, the other a 2.8T. Tempting.... There was a gorgeous white one for sale, but that seems to have sold..
