    Dunno, I prefer the Aero kit personally - the body coloured-ness of the Airflow/Carlsson kit is the issue for me I think.

    That car is amazing though. Looks brand new!

    Aero + whaletail for me :)

    I agree. I'm not opposed to 80's design, it's just something about the Saab 900's that I just don't like. Of course, I won't deny that they're fun to drive.

    No idea why but I like your Saab so much. Nosfertau posts pictures of his Vette and here I am commenting on an old Swedish box. WAT.

    Aww thanks :)

    A 900 is a nice old thing. You don't see many around now in this country.

    Something reassuring about tired, old cars.

    Yes it is, being picked up this morning for a spell in car hospital. They have given me a Fiat 500L as a replacement, it is horrible to drive :(

    I guess I could post some pics of my land yacht, a 2002 Infiniti Q45 Sport. It's getting a bit old, I've had it about 3 years (when I usually get bored) but
    I still love it. It purrs, it's comfy, the stereo rocks, the OEM headlights are insane, it handles alright and when you need it, 340 horses await your right
    foot. The mileage isn't too terrible for a V8 at 20/27. I also like that I rarely see these on the road, it's relatively unique.

    Parts and tires ($300/per) for this car are pretty spendy but it doesn't break. So far, the only unusual repair was a rear wheel bearing. It's running flawless,
    even at 142k now.

    I recently modified the OEM Bose tape deck's source output to become an MP3 (3.5mm) input which fixed the only pet peeve I had with this car, the lack of
    MP3 capability.

    I've had numerous vehicles in the past 20 years (a few much newer than this) and I don't think I'll ever replace this car. If nothing else I'll keep it in the
    family, give it to my kids perhaps.

    Thank you.

    I wish I still had all my Dad's old professional camera gear (that was stolen) as I enjoy taking pictures. This particular pic, for awhile after my fiance died, I was going out almost daily to drive to beautiful places and watch sunrises and sunsets. It was therapeutic. Took a lot of pictures. :)
