I ended up getting a Saab 9-3 2.2 TiD like this one.
I have heard much about the build quality of these cars and I have to say, my first impressions are that the reputation is well deserved. Even for a 2001 model it seems solid. I like it.
Its nice to be driving again after a break of five weeks of walking and cycling. Its a great way to keep fit but everything takes longer, you have to slow your lifestyle down accordingly. I don't mind that, but I like to live in the fast lane as well sometimes.
I haven't felt a burning desire to post anything up this last few days anyway. There is a limit to how many times per week, I want to write about the economy, or nonces in government. I will get back to writing about those things soon enough but I feel its OK to fiddle while Rome burns. I used to think Nero was a bit of a prat for that, but I'm beginning to understand now. I doubt there was much else he could have done in reality.
I have been helping to get our community recording studio up and running. It might just provide a helpful distraction to the evils of the world around us.
