I just realised something the other day.
All the time when I’ve been talking about my Viggen on this site, I’ve referred to it as a 1999 Saab 9-3 Viggen. When I pulled out the owner’s manual the other day though, I came to realise that whilst it was manufactured in late 1999, it’s actually a MY2000 Viggen.
So, looking up the prices on RedBook (our Aussie version of KBB etc) I found that the MY2000 Viggen currently sells for an average price of $22,650. In comparison, the MY1999 Viggen sells for an average price of $18,450.
Theoretically, I just made $4,200 without lifting a finger! And it makes the $22K that I paid for it 18 months ago look pretty darn good, too.
O Happy Day!
