Hey, I got the gauge thats for a ford excursion, I got it for $30, The front of the pod is a perfect fit, but the back was more a U shaped, so I just heated and trimmed and put it on..

My next mod is rims, i reallt don't want to get the BBS's that are on the 9-5 or the usual other ronals. I want to get something different in hyper silver in 18's.

Hey Trex nice ride! Where did you buy the mesh for your grill? I found a guy on ebay that has some 3 piece GT champion 19" rims that will fit a saab! Hes asking only like $1100.....brand new! yup 3 piece polished lip with black spokes.....these wheels look sweet!

let me know if you want more info!

Looks like gutter guard from Home Depot. I like the color of the grill it goes well with the body color. The 19" rims on ebay will not fit a Saab. The spacing for Saab is 5-110 and the ebay wheels are 5-112.

Nice interior work there Trex, a nice set of rims would definately make the car now...

Any pic's of the wheels you are thinking about?

It would definately be between number 1 and number 3 for me... But 3 would probably get it...

I would go with #3 personally, I think they would look best on the 9-3
