  1. Performance Clutch Consensus

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    That certainly is some serious cash. It comes with a flywheel? A DMF flywheel? How many folks have dropped the coin on this? If it feels and sounds natural then its probably the silver bullet to my question. It's probably a value adder when selling to another enthusiast down the road. I'd...
  2. Would you buy this car?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Defiantly a great car. We should be getting it back though in some form if the new Chevy SS comes in manual next year like the reports say. MRC would be great too.
  3. Would you buy this car?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Update All, Thanks for your input. After having 3 conversations with the dealer about the car over the phone they struck me as not the type I feel confident supporting. After explaining that I'd be coming in from out of town and that I'd like to see the price reduced due to the fact that...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    I believe it! I''m still disappointed though that you guys hadn't ported over the OPC motor transmission and AWD. That motor is great but its a little overwhelmed by the weight of the vehicle. The thing is constantly in boost so the fuel economy suffers. I think there is merit to...

    Yes, you see some ng900's in the Monterey area a couple 9k but I've only ever seen 1 08+ 9-3 and 2 Dame Edna's out here. Sounds like you might be from the Santa Cruz area, they have some SAABs. If you see a white 240z out in the area, its probably me.
  6. Performance Clutch Consensus

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Wardak, What stage tuning are you at? Who's your tuner? What is your driving style/commute like? I put on 30k per year on the highway so I'm looking for the most bulletproof way to handle long term, with just the ecu mod.

    Wow! So clean I think you earned another digit on the hatch 90,000 Aero.
  8. Would you buy this car?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Exactly. Tom Hank's tone and expression in that scene is the same one I use when I find another Saab out here. "Saab??????:o....SAAaaAAAAAaAB:p" Yep Bakersfield sure is a place.
  9. Would you buy this car?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    The Carfax lists a whole lot of Bakersfield time which I'd say is pretty hot. Hows the vtune treating you on our 91 octane? If you have a clutch how's it been holding up? Yes when you come up to Monterey you are probably the only 08+ saab. All of us 9K aero's recognize each other on the...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Malibu, Thanks for the solid advice, name drops, and good eye. Seeing as you sound like you are from the area with an Aero v6 I was wondering if you noticed if the hot climate and inevitable traffic compounding the likelihood of more frequent heat related failures (coils, expansion tank...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi guy's, In need your advise on a car that has come up for sale. I'm looking for a 2008 Aero fwd 6mt. It must be all of those things. The real tough part is that I live in California, as stated on previous threads only a handful of manuals made it west of the Mississippi since 2008. With...
  12. Performance Clutch Consensus

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi all, I was wondering if we reached a consensus about what the best all round clutch is. I have the opportunity to buy a 2008 Aero 6mt FWD and would like to buy a stage 0/1 upgrade to it. I'm in California with 91 octane so the boost should be dialed back a bit. I don't plan on pushing the...
  13. 2006-2009 9-5 Manual

    Cars Wanted - North America
    Hello, I was wondering if anyone was looking to sell a 2006-2009 9-5 manual transmission with sport seats. California preferred, Oregon acceptable I'm willing to pay up to 10K for a great car, more for a wagon.
  14. Seat Swaps on 2006 and up

    9-5 Workshop
    Hey all, I am looking to buy a 2007 9-5 Manual transmission which has the base seats. I would like to eventually 2006-2009 aero parchment seats either the single tone or two tone. Assuming they both have the side air bags are the seats plug and play?
  15. Possible Convert from 9000 Aero

    9-5 Workshop
    Good to know thanks. I can't imagine it riding harder than my 9K Aero with SAS swaybars though. Ultimately I want something more comfortable but with minimal performance sacrifice.

    9-5 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Phillie, Can you provide some pictures? Also if you don't mind my asking, would you mind providing a final tally of the products costs and installer fee. If I go buy the 2007 9-5 i'm looking at I would like to factor some of this work into the cost of purchase as I cant live in a world without...
  17. Possible Convert from 9000 Aero

    9-5 Workshop
    Thanks Mike, This does help. What do you think of the mileage and reliability on the 9-5? By the way my wife and I had an agreement before we got married that she would need to drive a manual. It worked out pretty well for us and she loves her 2006 Cooper S 6 speed. Has anyone compared the...
  18. Possible Convert from 9000 Aero

    9-5 Workshop
    Aftermarket radio in a 06-08? I haven't really fond any information explaining why the updated interior is harder to put a new head unit in. Is the dash kit or steering controls hard to find or something? I happen to like the newer interior more, it just feels like more of a fresh design...
  19. Possible Convert from 9000 Aero

    9-5 Workshop
    Hey Everyone, I own a pretty tired 1995 9000 Aero 5 speed stage 2 and am looking to get something a newer. I have to let you know first of all that i really have my heart set on a 2008 facelifted 9-3 Aero FWD with a manual. However that combination in the west half of the U.S. (I live in...
  20. Help me choose 2.0T vs Aero 2008+

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Thanks SaabKen , I really am gracious that you took a little time to help me out. I have seen those pop up on CL. Unfortunately at this point in my life the transmission is more important than the engine. The manual is a more of a lifestyle choice than a decision based on mechanical...
