Cool Am I nuts ?

I thought I found the ideal wheel "upgrade" for my '08 9-3 Aero the other day, but did not want to rush into anything. Then yesterday looking down on my Aero from the balcony of one of my listings during my open house I just kept thinking that those OE Aero/Anniversary SAAB alloys are freakin' gorgeous (definitely one of the coolest looking OE alloys EVER, sure I love the wheels on the latest Lambos too ) and that I'd be nuts to pay money for something different. Besides with the awesome HTRZ III shoes it has on, my Aero is handling very nicely as it is. Will this be the first car I've owned for a long time that I will not change the wheels on, possibly.

Cool

I may have a tuned 380BHP monster with the OE wheels . Exhaust, bushings and brakes first though, and I'm not in a rush.

Nothin' nuts about that. If you like it, you like it. Back when I had my SPG I loved the wheels it had... but I wanted the Minilites for mine even more than the tri-spoke, aero or whatever you call 'em. To each his own.

I tell you what was nuts... selling that 900 SPG for $300! I still kick myself for that often.

Ciao!

Cool

I should not have sold my 951s. But I was leaving for a 3 year stint in Europe so the extra cash came in handy. Now I know that the Zermatt Silber '86 '44 Turbo was even rarer than I thought, and is now highly sought after in that color, I actually met a '44 Turbo owner at least year's toy run who's with Ruf here in Dallas(we have a Ruf dealer!) who said that that was the colour he really wanted but could not find one in the U.S. ! But he did find a very rare deep green one, less than 10 made in that colour, and it looks great, so he did good.
