Thank you for your interest. I’ve had the car just just over 2 years, wheels were done at Chichester Cars. Superb but pricey. The dealer I bought the car from had refurbished them on the cheap, i.e. sprayed silver, no lacquer, after a year the paint was wearing away.

Just parked to take Daisy dog for a walk on the beach, looked back as I walked away and just had to take a photo. That’s a damn fine looking car!

It is the quite common dark silver, I think Saab called it Steel Grey. The light from the sunset does make it look good.
I just think the proportions of the 9-5 estate are just great, unlike the 9-3 estate which, in my opinion went very very wrong from the B pillar back (I will now hunker down behind a wall to dodge the flak) :D

Thank you :D

I've still got to sort the headlight wipers as they aren't parking right every time yet! Shame I didn't notice before I took the pictures :roll:

Check out the build thread in the restorations section of the forum if you want to see what's been done.
