Once I get my car ready for painting, I thing I'm going to attempt to make one.

How did it attach to the car?

If you're talking about the roof spoiler it attaches by two bolts that get drilled through the hatch. One near the tubing for the 3rd brake light and the other just on the other side

Would you be willing to take the roof spoiler off, show me the holes in the hatch and the mounting on the spoiler itself?

Where did you get it from? Are there any replacement type Spoilers that will work?

Not to rain on the parade, but another member has taken the route of a white viggen. Just pointing this out to show how awesome they look!

What brand rooftop antenna is that? Do you have any more pics of the other mods you've done?

I didn't realize you could put Volvo Type R wheels on the Saabs. I like the looks of that.

Why would it rain on my parade...I'm sure others have put a vig kit to a white saab, but the one you posted is not a vig kit but a drakkar model from the phillipines/Thailand/Asia area. Similar but different grille, spoiler, etc. Here's a drakkar model in blue http://www.saablink.net/forum/custom...-9-3/38420.htm more pics of the white drakkar http://www.saablink.net/forum/perfor...-9-3/60739.htm

It was from GS when they use to sell them. The pegasus wheels fit with slight mod ifications like wobble bolts, ect..

Your car is proper! Kudos for going unconventional (e.g.: the color white). Thus far, does the performance of your car match that of the factory Viggen? And does anybody know whether or not Viggen body parts are still available to purchase new?

I don't think you can buy Viggen body parts new anymore except for the little jack covers, etc. You could try. I believe that you'd be paying around $1000/bumper and $700/rocker before you get to all the mounting hardware. Rear spoiler was like $2K complete.

It's probably cheaper at this point to sell your car and buy a Viggen. There was a guy in the classifieds selling an NG900 with Viggen bumpers - that would be a good candidate for a swap and resale.

car can not really be made to have more power without doing engine work but is currently faster than a stock vig. ..New vig parts can be bought on eeuro and thesaabsite but for $$$
