Nice, I was 20 when I got my '97 900SET as well (two months ago, but then hit another birthday haha). Just like yours but blue, and mine's missing the turbo emblem in the grille

Any major aspirations for it? It's quite a nice car for someone our age to drive.

too be honest im a total noob with cars (thats why im on here) i wanna find out what the first things i should do with it, and what you guys would do to it. im about to give the car a good waxing, in the next 6 months i'll get the leather re-furbished because its cracked to all hell, i also want to get it tinted. what would u guys suggest?

i love the car to death, i cant believe how cheap i brought it off my cousin for ($5000 Australian) and how little mileage its done (100,000). i consider myself very lucky....i just wish it was black lol

Get a spare red thingy for ontop of the engine, and leave it in your boot. Its a DI or Direct Ignition Cassette, and can be very anoying if it decides randomly to stop working.
