    Don’t mind the mess...

    My new toy.... 2008 Saab 9-3 TurboX. 280hp turbo V6 and all wheel drive. Only letdown is the automatic trans, but even it is ok, considering. Not much better on this earth than the midrange pull of a Saab turbo motor.

    I had an ‘86 900 S, not turbo but with a five speed! I LOVE that marquee! One day I’ll have another SAAB, hopefully a wagon. In the meantime, it’s just me and my Outback....

    Sad.

    You have a BEAUTIFUL wagon there my friend!

    The 9-3 SportCombi is on my short list for wagons to replace my w124 wagon (just time for a new cheap toy). I realize it is a tarted up Opel and I am not a fan of modern GM, but it really is a handsome car - and they are really cheap too! Every time I see one in person (rarely) it climbs the list a bit. The 9-2x and a Lexus Sportcross are also on the list or even a TSX wagon if I bite the bullet for something newer.

    I had a 9-2x about seven years ago and drove it for about 50k miles. Was a great car, even with just the NA 2.5. Of course, it’s just a shined up Impreza.

    I was initially looking for a 2000ish 9-5 with a stick and the B235R motor to start throwing boost at, but this popped up and I couldn’t resist.

    Indeed, the SportCombi is one of the best looking modern wagons ever made.:nod The Lexus is handsome as well, but damn it is tiny inside. I test drove one, but that miniscule interior just wasn't enough in terms of room for a baby seat or any outdoor gear.

    I haven't actually driven a Sportcross and haven't even sat inside one. When I have kicked the tires a bit, the size was, and is, a big concern for me. I'm sure I can live with the accommodations in the driver seat. I am a bit concerned about the back seats, but my kids are 5 (booster seat) and 12 so I think they would be fine. But the lack of cargo area would be a big adjustment coming from thW124 wagon. But the looks and it being a Toyota product are really appealing to me. And it basically would be a pleasure car.

    I imagine once I get into purchase mode, I will likely just get whatever one I can get a good deal on. They all have pros and cons, but given that I want both I don't think I can make a bad purchase. Worst case, I sell whatever I buy and buy the next itch left to scratch.
