Its funny, but I really feel this car is similar to the ST. Its small but practical and sporty. And its a hatch. I am going to miss it, but not as much as I am going to enjoy having an ST!

It has a 3" downpipe and makes 18 psi in 3rd gear. The transmission is starting to go :( . I also have a lowering kit with adjustable koni shocks as well as some bolt-ons to toughen up the suspension like a thick rear sway bar and a 6 point frame brace (Now I know I will not need these types of things on the ST!!)

Nice Saab. Owned a few of them myself. had a 99, 900 turbo, 900 SPG, 9000, 9000 Areo.

We were big into SAABs right up to when GM bought the company.

nice! I just bought a 89 SPG 4 months ago but the head gasket just blew and piston 4 is F#$Ked! Such a beautiful car. Im going to keep it around and look into putting a built engine into it myself.

I dont get something.... all I see is muddy trail and the car has a ski rack on the top. Pretty car, though...
Yes I left the rack on for the photos..The ski season was pretty shitty anyway, but there was still enough snow higher up.

I am a current 99 Saab 9-3 convertible owner myself. I am running 16 psi through all gears, with a intake, 3in Turbo back exhaust, with boost controllers and a custom 3 gauge panel, and some other small things. I understand completely when u say that you will miss it, but I think the Focus ST will be a good trade.
