    Beautiful wheels. I've driven a couple of those and they're a joy to throw around corners

    Beautiful! This being the Aero means it has the 2.8T yes?

    Not really anything. Gas mileage is about the same for both. I averaged 10.5L/100km in the Astra and the 9-3 is about 11.2L/100km.

    Thank you. So far I love the SAAB a lot more then the Astra. Both are great cars though. Its hard to compare the two though. The Astra was a bit better on gas and handles great, but suffered with a small, under powered engine. The SAAB handles great as well but uses more gas, but at least I am not scared to pass cars on the highway. Or merge onto the expressway.

    Nice! Classic Saab.


    Of course "real" Saab fans will cough and choke at that statement.

    Re: My "new" 07 SAAB 9-3

    I've been thinking about one of these. The more I look at them, the more I appreciate the clean lines of the '07 and down. The '08 and up models look good, but a bit overdone.

    I've also been looking at the 9-5. Of course, the same rules apply to clean lines and I have to go back as far as 2000 or so to find a 9-5 that looks good, if not a bit conservative on the exterior. Judging from youtube that 2.3T sounds pretty good though, and I know the 2.8T sounds amazing in the 9-3.

    Very clean car! I noticed in the later pictures you blacked out the smaller chrome grills on the front....nice touch!
