Hoot review? (http://www.hoot-uk.com/content/launch_pad/archive/saab/9-3_vector.html)

Didn't read the press release either. Probably got the info from a mate in a pub.
The author: A member of the hallowed Guild of Motoring Writers, Jeremy chairs the all important string-backed gloves committee. Every day, he dusts down his trusty Remington typewriter to contribute to the London Evening Standard, Autocar and a rash of regional rags. His first car was an Alfa Romeo GT Junior - and he's never really recovered.
Perhaps he is the same chap who made two fundamental errors in ES Wheels supplement of the Evening Standard two weeks ago?
That review was complete Tosh. Full of glaring inaccuracies.
Rover 75 as a rival? C'mon http://www.saabscene.com/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif

It's all a load of Swiss cine camera makers.
What made me suspicious was the reference to the cupholders...

Agree entirely about the review, though - one of the worst pieces of 'motoring journalism' I've ever read.
