History
noisy exhaust. Better gas mileage in town than my 1996 Thunderbird (4.6L V-8). Convertible top tonneau lock motor not working day 1. Had to replace that and bolter mesh gears for tonneau to fix factory warpage (shaaaame Saab!). Fixed blown intake manifold gasket causing rough running (day 1). Overall, really nice car. Want to replace seats w/ 9-5 Aeros that actually heat. Drippy water pump-to-head o-rings replaced twice - damn GM or Saab!!

Modifications

Drivetrain
2.3L NA. distributor is starting to leak just a hair. Pre-filter charcoal filter before cabin air filter.
Interior
custom floor mats - better than factory. Thick surged edges, say 'SAAB' in nice factory-like font in silver.
Exterior
much polishing and coating top. New fog lamps (yellow is so nice on snow!). Blizzack tires w/ devoted Saab (2000 9-3 rims) for winter.
Audio
factory CD-changer setup. Have a factory amp to drive new door speakers for spring 2012.

When CD-Changer setup dies will get aftermarket H.U.
Suspension
creaky flattened orignial springs and struts for now
Wheel and Tire
factory wheels. General brand tires great in the summer and rain. Have separate rims/tires for winter (very happy with that!)
