I am also a new W126 owner. And I'm already in love. We had one of these 'motivational speakers' come in to work the other day- I suppose some are good but this guy stunk. Anyway he asked the group what their definition of sucess is and everyone sighed and looked pained. After a long pause I felt bad for the guy and piped up with 'Not owning a Saab anymore'. All my co-workers who have listened to my complain and whine for two years cheered and clapped!
I've never enjoyed diggin into a car this way before. Athough the car runs beautifully, at idle you would think it was turned off it's so smooth. But every week I'm still thinking of new ways to tune her up or clean her up just a little more. I love feeling passionate about my car again!
