Not a fan of VW at all...I used to own one and I was always dumping $ into it.

Funny, yesterday some dude with a Jetta was trying to get me to go on the highway. He blew past me and then slowed down. I noticed that it wasn't even a VR6. (But it did have a huge fart-can) He was running side by side with me at about 75mph and then he looks at me and point forward as if he wanted to race. I'm thinking, is this guy serious? I see his car jerk, so I knew he downshifted and was "trying" to beat me. So I quckly drop it into 4th and I absolutely dusted his ass. Within about 5 seconds I was about 15 car lengths ahead of him. It looked like he wasn't even moving and I just took off. Haha later douchebag

It's an issue with the best mechanics out there? Oh you mean BMW mechanics ? When you have mechanical experience and get to know your own car it is not much of a problem, generally they dont work on saabs because they are much different, but I wouldn't say much more difficult.
look i dont wanna major hijack thread and keep arguing with you, but youve probably never worked on a saab, and right, thats no problem because you can take your car to the saab dealer. well if you take it there, you might as well buy another car..

right when we got the saab, there was a fuel leak, we took it to the dealer, and they charged 70 dollars for a HOSE CLAMP.. yep, 70 bucks, 12 bucks for the part!! and 58 for the labor.. WTF! so either way they arent practical, and if you try working on them yourself, its a pain, BMWs are MUCH easier to work on, trust me i know

200HP SAAB hanging with a 95 m3???

see I like the old vw's like the squareback. or the old bettle. Those things were reliable simple cars and would get you around nicely.

I don't really have a problem with VW. sure they have a corporate parts bin, but so does 99% of all companies these days. They're not built to be the fastest cars, they're built to be good affordable cars for the majority of the population. I would drive one.

You took it to the dealer, it is going to cost a lot you dolt. Why would I or anyone else want to hear your arguments about SAABs engineering or reliability when you aren't even capable of swapping out a hose clamp? Not that it would matter in this case being in a thread about VW's quality. And I don't see how you KNOW he cannot keep up with an S50 - HE HAS-... he pulls damn hard on me granted I only have an intake. Stop clogging the forum with your misguided bias.

Where is the love?

Oh yeah, for BMWs.

That's right.

Some people get all caught up in other things and lose the big picture.

Awwww.

people get caught up in bmws because they have a lot of nice things going for them. you just have to remember that other cars have their fortes and downsides just like bmws do. remember that your bmw is NOT the best car out there. there are lots of cars that are faster in a straight line, faster in the corners, and brake better. hell, there are many that do all 3 of those better together. appreciate a car for a car, not because of who makes it.
