Last week the weather was perfect for driving the 900 convertible, but this week it’s back to the mighty 9-3. With a spare hour over the weekend, I managed to give it a quick clean – the first it’s had for well over a month.
I’m always amazed at how beautiful it looks when it’s clean, unfortunately though, being clean highlights things I need to give some attention too. It’s 3 years old now, and has a couple of small war wounds; stone chips to the front bumper, a small run in with an unfriendly kerb, and an antisocial idiot mark on the bonnet, all small things, but to keep the car in perfect condition, they need sorting.
Taking photographs of the Saab also gives me a rare opportunity to stand back and admire it for a moment. It really is an amazing design, it’s aged exceptionally well and feels as fresher and more exciting than many new cars do today.
Asked if I’d by one new today, the answer would be a resounding yes, after all, what other car has this much individuality?
