    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    OK.. here's the deal. I have been getting appx 20 mpg on a 06 9-3 Aero. Then ran through some water and sucked up a big gulp *ooops*.

  6. Mileage with BSR Stage 1

    NG900 & OG9-3 Performance, Mods & Tuning
    Has anyone done an accurate job of tracking their mileage before and after the BSR PPC Stage 1 upgrade (no addt'l air flow or cat back/exhaust mods) on a 2005 9-3ss ARC 210 HP engine? Hard to believe that they can squeeze out an extra 37 HP with NO decrease in mileage. (Or do we need to send...
