When is SAAB...

...going to finally get rid of all that cheap-ass rubber molding on the sides of their cars and switch to body-colored? Honestly, it makes the 9-7X more appealing because of its lack of rubber. Check out the pic on SAAB's main page - it looks sort of hot. Seriously, guys. Its not an '87 Ciera...

Supposedly the black rubber molding give them a more "Euro" look. At least that's what IGN thought when it came to the new Kia Rio. Volvos have it too. I just think it looks cheap.

Volvo lost those black mouldings recently. My dad's 2000 had them, but the recent models have body coloured ones.
