I'm in the market for a 9-3 convertible. NOT diesel, NOT an Aero.
Preferably mid to dark blue, definitely not white.
Budget can run to £4k but happier nearer 3.
08 plate or later.
Auto or manual.
Preferably within 75 miles of Horsham, Sussex but prepared to stretch for the right car.

Why not an Aero if you don’t mind me asking?

(I have one for sale, so curious as to your choice, that’s all)

I'm assuming - possibly wrongly - that it will have the same hard riding suspension as my Aero sport wagon. I suffered a back injury in 1972 and, as I get older it is becoming susceptible to bumps and jars. My luscious lady friends Focus feels like luxury over Sussex's roads.

Have a silver 9-3 for sale. (05 plate), so nothing really like what you are looking for :)
Almost twice as far as you wanted to travel....
But it's a lot cheaper than your budget , has 12 months MOT and has been breathed on by Saab noob.

Cheers

I have an Aero Cabriolet for sale. I’m happy for you to have a drive in it and either discount it, or consider it. I’m based in Surrey, but work in Sussex. Let me know your thoughts.
