Thought that I could share some pictures of the BSR B3 from Elmia Custom Show here in Sweden.

Enjoy... :D

Very nice, the car looks mean with the drop and the 19" BBS CH wheels :D.

Man, I want those Porsche brake calipers :D

I like the little carbon fiber lip touches too (not so hot on the spoiler but I guess it serves a purpose). Interesting to see they are running a 3" cat-back system too.

It serves a purpose, not like the smucks that drive around in their 90 Accord with one of those.


Nice pics, I love the looks of the 19's.

I'm not saying it doesn't serve a purpose but get it off my SS :cheesy:

thats what i mean. if your racing the car (which i assume they are) then sure, but if its just a show car, they could have done better. (spoiler)

I am not sure this is just a show car. This car is probably what got our PPC's to the market. Its a freakin test car!!! Which can be put in a show!! :cheesy:

I would have to see the wing in person to be sure, but from the photo I am fairly certain that it is set up as "neutral" => no force created either up or down. Most wings of this type will cost you a few mph at the top end, but if adjusted for neutral, will not affect the handling. This would not surprise me; I have had my Vector up to 118mph and the tail (along with the rest of the car) was solid as a rock.

It seems too tall to simply be a "von Karmann" foil (drag reduction device). But if it has any intentional effect at all, that is what I would bet on.

Most street wings on front wheel drive cars are adjusted by their clueless owners to create considerable downforce - at high speeds, this moves the center of pressure rearwards AWAY from the drive wheels. Not a good thing, for most front drivers. This is especially amusing on fwd cars on the drag strip!

On the street, this kind of stuff just screams "poseur". :roll:

did a search and a company called apr performance (aprperformance.com) will apparently make you a custom front splitter if you trace your front bumper outline on a piece of cardboard and mail it to them. cost $340 + shipping or something BUT there might not be enough meat under the aero lip for fastening. think i read they need 3-4" of flat surface. sure there are others available from someone, too bad the saab is uncommon enough that there aren't premade ones readily available.

http://www.thirdfloor.biz/temp/elmia/01.jpgUnfortunately BSR do not sell the Carbon Fibre front splitter, see the link in post #22 of Where can I get that spoiler? (http://www.saabcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=81605&highlight=spoiler+bsr)

at the risk of sounding stupid...any ideas on how they mounted the porsche brakes? i doubt they are just bolt on so that means a custom bracket?? i'm sure plenty of people would buy a bracket if it meant adding the tons of aftermarket brakes available for porsche to our brake up-grade options.

Pity they did that in Ikea land.
