Hi and welcome to Saabcentral :)
Fitting an atmospheric dump valve to a Trionic 7 equiped car is a big No-No :nono; Unless you want to destroy your new purchase! It upsets the fueling to much,you can fit an uprated recirculating dump vavle but you will still not get the woosh sound.

Lowering and alloys sounds good..
I can personally recommend the Eibach pro kit :D

Mr Saabman,

Love the wheels. Are they 18"?

And is that spoiler Saab's own, or another aftermarket co.?

Does anyone have a spoiler on an 02 or 03 9-5? I'd like to see a picture of how it looks on the redesigned back end.


Thanks,

Cheers :D I love them too :wink: I wish they were 18's but unfortunately they are 17".

The spoiler is an aftermarket one make by ASD tuning,Saab do sell a similar one http://www.saabcatalog.com/retail/category.asp?catalog%5Fname=Saab+Catalog&category%5Fname=Drive9395%3ARear+Bridge+Spoiler+9% 2D5+Sedan&Page=1 :)

So what if they're 17" - can't beat the look of a classic five spoke.


Did the ASD spoiler require drilling through your trunk (boot)? Did you install it yourself?

Yes I fitted the spoiler myself and it did require 4 holes to be drilled,but it was very easy to do :)
The spoiler also came with a bonding kit so it is stuck down solidly.

By the way the holes come out through the seam sealer on the uderside of the boot so when the screws are fitted they form a nice water tight seal as they compress the seam sealer slightly :)
