    This tool wouldn't care if it was man or auto ... give me an E60 though, the E39 is a little on the bland side.

    When I need to get a "new" car, my list is basically 100% Euro-wagons. Fast/sporty and tons of room in the back. And if a wagon is done right, it can look 100 times better than the sedan. I think nearly all recent Audi wagons look better than their sedan counter parts.

    This would be my top pick wagon though...
    C5 RS6 Avant.... mmmmmmmm

    Don't forget the 9-3 SportCombi. In my opinion one of the best looking wagons and totally different from the sedan. Most wagons (including the 9-5) just look like the roof line was extended and a hatch was added.

    I wouldn't mind having another 9-3 SC Aero with the V6.. But perhaps a manual trans this time if you can find one.

    My only problem with the 9-3 SC is that if you want AWD, you can only get the 9-3x. Not that I can afford a new one anyway, but if I could, maybe I want the AWD for the performance gains and not that extra ride height.

    That being said, it is a great looking car. Your old 9-3 SC and Hirsch's are some of the best looking examples of them.

    And I dream for one, almost nightly. Oh, and add stick shift (not required for me, but definitely a huge plus), and you've got a car that is harder to find than hen's teeth.

    The Turbo X SC is a rare car, especially with a manual transmission. There are 6 sedans on cars.com and not even an auto SC.

    I agree. I rented the sedan version, a 520i. It came as a 5 speed. It was capable of going at least 200 km/h.

    On a different subject, see Swedish man arrested for trying to split atoms in home kitchen - The Globe and Mail

    Richard Handl told The Associated Press that he had the radioactive elements radium, americium and uranium in his apartment in southern Sweden when police showed up and arrested him on charges of unauthorized possession of nuclear material.

    Mr. Handl, 31, said he had tried for months to set up a nuclear reactor at home and kept a blog about his experiments, describing how he created a small meltdown on his stove.

    Only later did he realize it might not be legal and sent a question to Sweden's Radiation Authority, which answered by sending the police.

    ...If convicted, Mr. Handl could face fines or up to two years in prison.

    Although he says police didn't detect dangerous levels of radiation in his apartment, ...“From now on, I will stick to the theory,” he said.

    As much as I love my Combi and as much as I enjoyed European delivery, it still gets under my skin knowing that if I'd waited another year I could have gotten the same car with AWD.

    Don't regret it. One drawback of AWD is if you have a flat tire, you may need 4 new tires or have to shave a new tire to replace the flat.

    After I got my second 900, about six months later the next model year came out. It was priced the same but had airbags, anti-lock brakes, and a center console. I decided to get my third 900. Never have I had a car for so short a time. I did have the experience of driving a Finnish made Saab (my second 900) that wasn't a convertible, a combination that wasn't very common in the US.
