2002 Saab 9-5 Aero HOT auto lpg (Silver)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Replacement engine @ 175k, currently @ 220,000 miles (May '13)
LPG, currently reading 29.5 mpg B-)
MapTun strut brace.
Regular Xado to the engine & gearbox, along with Amsoil fluids.
Interior
Standard: fab clean replacement SID
Being Irish (perhaps?), it's got a slightly unusual for a Aero 250 wood trim dash, rather than the normal silver affair.
Exterior
Fogs replaced with black metal + '06 style round spots
Audio
Added MP3 plug-in: works well
Suspension
Rear self-levelling kit retro fitted, to counter the weight of the LPG tank (& replaced the tired original setup).
Dealer says the kit was the last out of the factory - send the week before closure.
Wheel and Tire
Standard size, different style. EBayed to me as an '02/'03 Hirsch wheel - I'm not sure/ don't care. It's an unusual design that seems to suit the car.
