New(ish) car from the defunct Swedish people

Postby Mac » Sat 16 Mar, 2013 3:29 am

Well its a far cry from the McLaren MP4-12C or the Aston Martin Vanquish that are on our wish list, but we've finally decided to ditch the "expletive" Vauxhall Zafira and get a new(ish) car

A Saab 9-3 1.9TiD will be joining us at the end of the month. Accountant says it's the right time to buy, before the year end, and accountants know best... apparently

Zafira - ;-)

I was lent a vxr zafira for a weekend - made a bad car worse!!!! completely pointless.

I see you have chosen a vectra instead - much better. I had a vectra for 4 years - good car.

haha... yeah. It's more of an automotive pick-n-mix. Fiat engine, GM running gear, Saab platform, electrics and ancilliaries from every automotive tier 1 going

Getting a bit bored of my Saab now and thinking of getting a E class car...

The Saab 95 is a piece of carp :hit)

Next on my shopping list is a Jaagwaur XF

:woah: :drive:

Gonna set me back at least £20K+ :shock: WTF

Being a tight "expletive" I might have to go for the cheaper (but not as nice IMHO) BMW 530D :?
