    Not to mention he is teh best in the world. :)

    Seriously though, I would agree with your assessment.

    German cars > all

    recently, though, german cars have declined a lot in reliability, and are being replaced with a lot of the new american cars for safety and low upkeep costs.

    dont get me wrong, im an a4 driver and avid fan of all things german, but recently the 3.2TT (or was it the 1.8T?) was deemed the most unreliable new car on the streets.

    Yea Audi and MB are doing their best to bring down the German rep. But even the worst MB will always be better than anything made by the stars and stripes.

    yeah, absolutely. except that american car manufacturers have more play in the euro markets now. ford owns volvo, VW still owns audi, luckily, but then theres daimler-chrysler, etc. euro car companies should stay independant of their american counterparts and keep the same reputation they enjoyed throughout the 80s and 90s.

    Well, when Saab start sharing Subaru chassis's and drivetrains like they plan with the 9-2, I might start to like Saab's more :bigthumb:

    Or would that then be a Saabaru?

    Me too, but old Saabs > new Saabs IMO... I'm going to cry when the 9-4 (I think) and the 9-7 come out, I don't like the thought of them sharing platforms with the likes of Pontiacs and Chevys. I'll take a well-maintained 80's 900 turbo anyday :wiggle:

    haha Saabs are finnish, are they not? Volvo > Saab anyways, especially the new ones. s60 owns a 9-3 any day.

    On a side note... Volvo should but out Koenigsegg and start development of an exotic car with the materials and design team. all the features of the SCC packaged in a very fast vehicle with very awesome exterior from the koenigsegg krew :big grin:

    Nope, Saabs are very much Swedish. And I agree, I'd take a new Volvo over a new Saab as well.

    My bad.

    Even an older volvo over a saab. Gotta admit, the 850 turbo... that thing could be tricked like hell and really nice. Personally, Swedish cars are still too boxy. early saabs and early volvos are very much alike in that they are all angular and edged. Not in the good way, either. Recently, much more curved designs have brought them forwards though.

    German cars really are the shit. even if reliability has gone down i can't see myself actually loving anything but German cars. and i mean love like with a big L. other cars seem like appliances but a Mercedes, a BMW, an Audi, porsche of course, even my little VW.. they've all got soul.

    and then of course there's their evil side.. i can't think of anything scarier than an M, AMG, S, or Turbo flying up in your review mirror with HIDs blazing and black paint glinting in the sun.

    @micra: not THAT early! haha i mean in the 80's mostly. the 240 and stuff for the volvos, the 900s for saab. both were rather goofy looking cars.

    Favourite 80's car: Lamborghini Countach

    My Volvo may be a "box" or a "brick" to some, but it sure moves better than most anything looking sleeker.
