The backstory is here.
The update is that I figured it was best to tell the Subaru rep who I was, and that I wouldn’t be driving the car as a prospective customer at all, but rather using it for evaluation and comparative purposes. I didn’t want to accept the offer under false pretences.

….so it appears that whilst Suuby truly were showing great customer service instincts, they didn’t want one of their cars in the hands of a Saab blogger for a week.
Either that or they’ve read the previous posts and are considering their options *gulp*
