    My 9-3SC 2.0T

    The car was owned by the ocean for most of it's life before migrating down to Pennsylvania, but surprisingly no rust. It's had it's fair share of Saab-ish-ness though.

  3. LED instead of Halogen?

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hey, I tried googling this, and searching the forum, and using the several facebook groups. I want my color of the light to match my LED light strip at the top. I don't care too much for super improved lumens, but just matching the output of normal H7s. I got the Silverstar ZXe now, and...

  7. 1st and 2nd gear boost limiter

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi there, I just bought my first Saab 9-3. It's a 2.0 SportCombi Wagon, and I truly love it. The 120 000 miles is coming up soon, but the car is running amazing.

  9. 2008+ 9-3 SC LEDs

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Has anyone successfully upgraded any/all of their exterior lights to LEDs? I'm trying to figure out what the best way to do it is, but the tail lights are all reverse polarity and it's going to be annoying as hell to do resistors everywhere unless I can find a way into the DICE programming.
