  1. Just got me this!

    C900 Workshop
    So, my college car was an '85 non turbo three door. I've always wanted to get my hands on a minter SPG, but they're a bit few and far between, and getting fewer and farther each day. This is probably my 13th or 14th Saab, and although this isn't the one I've been holding my breath for...
  2. Rear Qtr Window Trim Wipe Missing

    NG900 & OG9-3 Workshop
    Trim frame on drivers side is present but there's a good wide gap between it and the window. No wiper seal present. Is there any replacement part for that commercially available? Part of the one on passenger side torn away too, but none on driver side. Thinking I can repair these with new...
  3. Cheap fix - front windshield weatherstrip trim

    9-5 Workshop
    I went ahead and fixed mine for $15 using SEM 39143 black trim paint from Amazon. Thought I'd share some before and after pics. The after pic doesn't quite do it justice since the light reflects but you get the idea. Overall satisfied. There is still some texture even after some light...

  5. PICTURE REQUEST: Has Anyone Put Vinyl Wrap on their 9-7x Dash Trim?

    Saab 9-2X, 9-4X & 9-7X Workshop
    I've grown a little tired of the 'standard' GM 'Burl' finish on the dash panels, given that most every full size GM SUV has the same basic look to it. I've seen some potentially intriguing options, even other wood grains, that might update the interior nicely, but I was hoping to see what...
  6. Differences in engines

    9-5 Workshop
    I recently bought my 2004 9-5 Arc 2.3T. The badge on my trunk lid says "2.3T". I've often seen "2.3t", "2.3T", and "2.3 Turbo" mentioned in various posts. What is the difference in the engines, if any, and am I correct in assuming that the badge on the trunk lid (boot lid, for you...
