Thanks guy's...

This is my third Saab and the best one for sure in term of overall performance... The handling and the power is the big surprise, this car weight 3600 lbs and it feel like a GO-KART! Wow... Thank's to the Michelin PS2, the F1 shifting and BSR tuning! Just awesome...

did you own a viggen before?


I like the variation of slit 5 spoke wheels, and the new front is growing on me. in fact I just saw a pic of a new to come honda accord and it looks like they (and others) are starting to emulate it.

Default What does that include?

What does the package include? I will ask the dealer here if they can do this as well? What is the HP on the 2007 with your package?

They tell me 300HP, but it feel like 350HP... Maybe it's the high level of TQ? I don't think, you can do the same my friend? You have a 2002 not a 06"-07"...???

actually... I would do it myself.


but that doesn't take away from the fact that many, yourself included, might prefer to purchase such a vehicle new set up like that straight from a dealer. and when that is an option it's cool to have.

The wastegate thingy is interesting, no other tuner seems to specify these

Just a shame its an auto - looks great

As for doing these mods yourself, you would void your warranty, which was a large chunk of the price paid

ok my question is this: who is the manufacturer for these upgrades in bold above? We need to find out b/c to my knowledge these can't be purchased anywhere. Well let me correct that:

Sway bars
- either they are Aero spec or, if they are bigger, who's the manufacturer so we can source these? The only one bigger than the Aero's was that guy "rayyang" or whomever that was in Asia trying to charge too much so we cancelled the group buy.

coilover kit?!?!?!
- there's a kit for 9-5's up to 2001 of course, but I've NEVER seen one for the updated hub design. Is the front suspension setup the same in the '06+ models as in the '02-'05 models? If so I want this coilover kit. Again, where do we source these?

strut bars
-
"moose"parts has a front strut tower brace, but that's the only one I've seen, and it's for left-hand drive cars. I've NEVER seen a rear one available. Lastly, where do we source these?

Everything else listed can be had aftermarket. If anyone can get some leads on this stuff it would be very helpful in the search! Cheers.

VIGGEN Sport Package...

VIGGEN Race Package...
couple thoughts...

...looks like a dealer's shot at a factory stage 3...or close. with the option of an upgraded suspension.

...hopefully they don't offer this power increase on the standard 9-5 suspension.

...i guess the dealer can do whatever they want, but not sure about the viggen badges. imo they look out of place.

...i've seen other brands offer special "dealer packages" although this is VERY rare. i doubt you'd see this on a audi, volvo, bmw. and you have to be careful with servicing and warranty claims as other dealers may not honor the selling dealerships coverage.

...nice seats and nice car!
