mySaab900 that looks awesome in white man!! Gotta love the turbine aero wheels!!! You're gonna be safe too, they (SAAB/Spyker) crashed two of those (new 9-5s) together at 75 MPH and all 4 doors opened and the airbag deployment was pretty much instant!!! Looks like a sleek, fast, swedish, safe good old Saab to me. Enjoy!!

turbomarlin Not too keen on the US spec orange indicators at the front though. Here's a UK spec one:

Did you end up going with a 17" package? Did they include the TPMS monitors, and if you don't mind me asking how much was the total?
Thanks,

Well if john doesn't want them, I know someone who does!

GA The car has been named.

Frosty.

bruceinmiami I don't agree that the new one. Looks so massive vs the old one. You wanna talk massive, look at a 04 mustang vs a 05 mustang!

I was surprised at how similar in size they were. Sure, the new one looks bigger, but just slightly. In fact, the family resemblance is pretty uncanny.

The white with the rimz is a knockout.

When we were buying the Jetta - we drove the 9-3 and Morrie's had at least 2-3 new 9-5's in.

IronJoe Wow, that car looks massive compared to the 1st gen 9-5.


Congrats. Although it's too bad they drilled the bumper for the front plate. That'd be a dealbreaker if I were buying a new car.
