Looks awesome out in the wild.

It just confirms that Saab is alive outside of a car show.

Nice car Greg. I would assume that was the one I got a little ride in, or did Meyer get another in that color more recently?

NG900 style rear windows? Huh?! None of the glass looks similar to the NG900 that I can see.

Congrats Greg, looks great!

Had you test driven one before?

It's the same rough shape as the c900 coupe and OG9-3 coupe rear window. Only if you take into consideration both pieces of glass together - they kept the "hockey stick swoop" from the hoodline back to the window.

Eh, still doesn't scream c900 ng900 to me. But yes, the general shape from the hockey-stick line does hearken back to the 900.

The windsheild/painted a pillars/1/2 painted mirrors look great.

Very Saab. And the rear window shape is almost exactly the same as an NG.

Test drive? I did the test drive at SOC, but with 3 people in the car, limited to busy suburban streets at 40 mph max for 5 minutes, it wasn't that informative.

Update: OnStar is hooked up - count me unimpressed. The setup call from inside the car dropped a connection twice - and I was parked next to Lake Calhoun, with nary a vertical obstruction within 100 yards of me. Not a good advertisement for their service if they want me to buy minutes.

The XM radio setup couldn't have been easier, in contrast.

I paired up my iPhone with the Bluetooth, and it works like a charm. Hands free calling FTW. Although the car shows up in the iPhone's Bluetooth dialogue box as "General Motors"

I figured out how the radio works a bit, and managed to get my radio station presets all set.

The infotainment system also plays DVD's! So I put a DVD in the car and watched an old favorite TV show for a few minutes. (It plays in the Nav screen, but it won't show the video when the car is in motion - but it will play the audio, though!)

I assume that Marty ordered him one. Marty's didnt have NAV or the 19" wheel package.

It wasn't the same one as there before. GA had to wait for this one to come on the boat.
