Yeah... when I started banging my head on the keyboard trying to figure it out I knew it was time to give up

If you are having trouble with the Gallery the appropriate place to post those concerns would be in the Help forum.

FWIW, it still works the same as it always had for adding albums and images, nothing has changed in over a year roughly.

nah  ... forggettaboutit

but I do have a new car... for those that care, an '03 Saab 9-3t Linear (173hp).  Interesting car.  Still learning the ins and outs but seems like a decent car.  Decent deal.... Needed a car quick given my '06 Jeep was totaled last week.

Any have good experience with Saab?  I know all the horror stories from years back.  Seems like they are more solid nowadays.. and the service intervals are every 45K.

Love the look of the car.  Deep red with tan leather interior.  It was a one car owner/lease that was turned in at the end.  Got a two year 24K mile warranty to boot.

I do have to admit, this was an out of the ordinary purchase for me.  Usually I do so much dam research before I go, I give the dealership a complex.  This time was not the case.  I sort of fell into this deal.  I was looking to buy so it was not impulse, just impulse on this car.  Guess you could say it felt right?  :?

They seem to be much better these days. My co-worker has an 06 9-3 and I really like it a lot. I was very impressed with the how it drives and handles. Other than that I don't much about them.

ColoradoB5 used to have a 9-3, well his wife did and I think they had some trouble with it. I think there were more issues around the time GM bought them then there are now.

:lol: Yeah, it's been about a year since J's been around. Sounds like a great car! My dad had an older one that he pretty much rebuilt becuase the previous owner didn't do things like change the oil. I was going to buy it actually, but didn't. Don't really remember why though. It was a really fun car to drive.

I love the look of the new Saabs.  

Are they as "unique" as the old Saabs?
have a 92 S4, and old Porsche, and some Japanese stuff sittin' in the garage.

Cool!  I was working on a lease for a 9-3ss when I switched and got a Passat back in 2004.  I could not quite get the Saab lease cheap enough. I really liked the way the 9-3ss looked, handled and drove.  They seem like a good value off-lease with an extended warranty (or a budget for repairs.)  Mostly electrical gremlins, IIRC, are the issue with the 9-3ss.  The 2.0 Ecotec LPT is great around town, better than a 1.8T for driving in traffic.

I have a 1995 Saab 9000 turbo as a daily driver these days.  Lots of fun, surprisingly fast and low-key and the hatchback holds tons of stuff, like a mountain bike or a range.
One day I want to get a Viggen.
They torque steer madly but have great seats and excellent power.

Enjoy,
-Joel.
