Thanks for all your kind thoughts and words about my looming departure from Saabs United.
To those who suggested I post just every now and then – unfortunately, I don’t seem to be able to work that way. This business has a flow about it, a cadence. Once you miss the beat, it’s very difficult to get back. That’s why you generally get four or five entries a day here, not one or two.
Hopefully there are some solutions out there than can see SU continue. As for me, well…. my time with SU is definitely coming to a close. Hopefully it’s not the end of the road completely, but it is the end of this road. I can’t juggle everything and something’s got to give. Right now, that something is SU.
Here’s a figure that might surprise you as much as it surprised me.
If I told you there were six pre-orders for the Saab 9-4x in Belgium, you might think “given the lack of a diesel option, that number sounds about right”.
What if I told you that those six orders for the Saab 9-4x were from just one dealership?
Good to see Sergio Marchionne tell VW to get their grubby eyes off Alfa Romeo.
Now he just needs to keep up the good work started with the Giulietta. Geneva will be interesting.
It was great to see the Saab Owners Club GB get together via Robin’s Flickr stream. Looks like they had a good gathering of cars there at Stratford on Avon
And it’s always good to see Elie having a good time. If anyone needs an event to be livened up, get this guy along and just watch him work – a Saab ambassador in the finest and most fun sense.
I’m a bit late to the party on this one, but people are blowing up my inbox with links to it.
So here’s the Norwegian beer guy in Germany doing his bit to show his Saab 9-3s usefulness. Bring Back The Hatch!
