I bought a TurboX :)

I bought a TurboX a few weeks ago from California. Hopefully it will be shipped towards the beginning of march. I only have the sellers photos of the car for now.

https://m.facebook.com/chen.he.758/a...3870739503258/

This will my first new 9-3. I've been driving my 95 900 for about 7 years now and I love the car, but it is time for something a bit newer. I will be keeping the 900, and will continue to modify it now that it won't be my DD.

I'll make sure I take some good photos of the car when it arrives.

Very close. 950 open, assuming they dont try to squeeze any more out of me. My dad has had some poor experiences in the past.

If you purchased it at or below the asking price and it is in good shape, you got a real steal on this. In Europe these cars were like USD 60K (or more) when new! I have six Saabs and this and the Viggen are the two remaining on my bucket list which I don't own yet (I'll have mine a stationawagon please!).

I agree! Even with the shipping cost, it is still a pretty good deal, and I will be able to fix the rear bumper scratches with some help from my father. There was a very similar car, though without the scrapes in the bumper and no aftermarket parts, that sold for 14,200 on ebay recently.

The pictures arent the best, but the seller seems to have been up front about any damage so I believe the rest of the car will be in great shape.

Thats a lot of saabs! I wouldnt mind buying a c900 someday. I think viggens are great, and Ive been collecting parts to get my 900 pretty close. Ive got all the major exterior and interior parts, and even swapped a 2.3 from a 9000 last year.

Congrats!

I drove a 6MT sedan back when my local dealership first got theirs. Fun car, and I still want a 6AT Combi at some point.
