how does it handle with the stiffer shocks and stock springs?

any ways, here's my car ridin' dirty (literally)

Awesome Nocturne and rims. I never see that colour on the streets here, only the rare one in showrooms.

But yea my car handles beautifully with the Bilsteins. Very precise for sporty driving yet supple enough for comfortable daily driving. They complement the stock Aero springs well. However my old stock shocks were so dead that of course the comparison is night and day

It's cool driving my car and comparing it to my dad's bone stock 2007 2.0T which has noticeably more suspension travel and body roll. Though his younger powertrain feels much smoother than mine.

Thought so - great colour. Of course I am biased being the owner of my second Fusion Blue 9-3. Love those rims though!

Picked my latest Saab up on Friday. A 2008 TTID Vector Sport, full leather, factory fitted satnav, Xenons, driving pack, comfort pack, 20,000 miles. Total bargain and I love it! And I never realised how nice the snow silver paintwork would be, much prefer it to 'traditional' silver!

Nice car. Have heard those ttid's are real torque monsters. Very rare here in Australia.
