    Ragnar - I do not have the navigation system. However, my dad has an S430, and has the navigation in his. I can tell you that it works very well for him...and he has no trouble finding small/hidden roads in neighborhoods.

    3pt - it has 190 horsepower.

    You've got a hell of a car...I love them. A friend of mine has the same car as your wife - he loves it aside from the exorbitant gas prices.

    3ptmiller it has the AMG engine with I think arround 300 hp. I dont really know. It is pretty fast. Oh and it is terrible on gas. It has a 20 gallon gas tank and you can watch the needle going down as you drive it.

    Skyfire. Ironically if I lived in a big city I would not own a car at all. I would be just fine in NY or Philly just taking Taxi's I love cars as you can see but I hate to drive in everyday traffic.

    How do you like the Ion?
    Besides the drip panel flying off the first day I got it(last week), it has been good. I really haven't driven it that much because of the cracked windshield and the drip panel flying off on 70. Personally, I would recommend a different company. I have been very displeased with the way Saturn has treated me.

    I passed you at what must've been after class as you were pulling into the Shrine Club.

    I've seen you on your motorcycle too.

    FBI LAUNCHES RAID ON SATURN COMPOUND

    ABILENE, TX -- After 47 tense days, the standoff between Federal Bureau
    of Investigation agents and members of the Saturn Family was finally
    broken Monday when an FBI strike team invaded the Saturn compound and
    seized 23 cars with their owners inside.

    Agents also captured Mark Schechter, evangelistic car dealer and
    self-described "Father of the Saturn Family," who offered agents good
    deals on trade-ins upon capture, but has yet to surrender any
    information on activities inside the compound.

    "At Saturn, we're a different kind of car company," a handcuffed
    Schechter said as FBI officials led him away from the scene.

    According to reports, shortly before 7 a.m., following a night of the
    FBI's blaring Three Dog Night's "Joy To The World" over loudspeakers,
    heavily armed agents posing as customers burst into the compound, where
    they met with little resistance.

    "They were real nice, not pushy at all," said Kurt Harwood, one of the
    FBI agents. "They let me walk around and look at whatever I wanted
    without pressuring me or giving me the 'hard sell.' Fortunately, we
    were able to overcome them before they could 'answer any questions' that
    we had."

    Saturn owners captured in the raid are being flown to Washington, D.C.,
    where they will be interrogated by FBI psychiatric profiling teams
    before being deprogrammed for reintroduction to mainstream society.

    "They welcomed me warmly, as if I actually was a member of their
    family," recalled a visibly shaken young woman identified only as
    "Julie," one of the car owners rescued in the FBI raid. "After I bought
    my Saturn SL-1, there was a ceremony involving the setting of the
    dashboard clock, during which Mr. Schechter introduced me to the other
    family members and announced that it was my first new car. Everyone
    kept asking me if I was 'excited.'"

    "Then," Julie continued, "the other owners started advancing upon me
    slowly, wearing happy, vacant looks. They seemed almost transfixed with
    joy. Mr. Schecter took a Polaroid of me. When it developed, they took
    it to a bulletin board full of similar photos. I recognized several of
    the faces as those of people around me. Then I realized -- they weren't
    going to let me leave."

    On day 11 of the standoff, Julie attempted to flee through a restroom
    window while she was supposed to be changing into the white linen
    raiment emblazoned with the Saturn logo which is used in the
    paperwork-signing ceremony of initiates. She was, however, caught and
    returned to the main showroom.

    Julie's attempted escape was detected by FBI intelligence, and a
    rapid-response team arrived on the scene shortly afterward. But by that
    time the compound had been sealed off, and large, orange "Closed For
    Inventory" signs greeted agents at the door.

    It was not until Monday that the woman was finally freed. "Reliability
    and service are nice, but at what cost?" Julie said. "I will not trade
    my soul for fiberglass side panels."

    Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms raids on smaller Saturn
    dealerships in Idaho and Montana have produced evidence that activities
    similar to the ones described by Julie have been taking place across the
    country.

    "We are pursuing several leads at this time," ATF director John Magaw
    said. "But we do know for a fact that the Saturn family has already
    infiltrated the fabric of our society to a startling degree. My sister
    owns one. My brother-in-law owns one. This thing is spreading."

    Rumors currently being investigated by the ATF include accounts of
    ultra-zealous Saturn delivery-truck drivers and sightings of a red sedan
    painted with mysterious occult markings, driven by a man wearing a black
    satin Saturn jacket.

    Reports of Saturnic rituals at a Northern California compound, involving
    the burning of the Sign of Saturn into the foreheads of new owners, are
    also being investigated.

    Saturn, a division of General Motors, has been under close FBI
    surveillance since the company was founded in 1990. The company
    frequently holds secret, dealer-sponsored barbecues at which new Saturn
    owners are further introduced to the mysteries of Saturn ownership, the
    most famous of which are held by a high-ranking Saturn family member
    known as "Russ."

    The company also holds annual "reunions" which are marked by mass
    pilgrimages of Saturn family members from across the world. According
    to FBI files, some Saturn owners find the car-buying experience so
    satisfying that they apply for and are sometimes accepted as
    salespeople. Some eventually attain the honored rank of "dealer," but
    only after hundreds of hours of serving Saturn.

    "Thank goodness for the FBI," said Andrea Aberg, another rescued Saturn
    owner. "Next time I'm buying a Honda."
