Friend and fellow Saab enthusiast, Graeme Lambert, has recently taken delivery of of his latest long term test car and it just happens to be a Saab 9-5 TTiD Aero. As you may know Graeme is a journalist for the British Car Weekly Auto Express. He will be writing about his new Saab on a regular basis and will let us have the links to his latest entries online.
