    So basically the title. I've been having so much trouble with my engine, it's been totally dismantled so I'm just installing a new to me B207R. I have a 2010 9-3 XWD, and I'm wondering if I can shop only the one or both. Thanks, y'all!

    Cars Wanted - North America
    Currently looking for an AWD, 6MT Saab 9-3. Those are the three big things. Being an Aero trim level or having a V6 is just a bonus. Looking for something on the cheaper side as I'm not particularly concerned by mileage and general mechanical/aesthetic condition. I plan on building the car a bit...

    Hey everyone. So my 2010 9-3 2.0T XWD has been giving me the "Service XWD" bing after driving around for 30 minutes or so. I took it to the mechanic and he cleaned / did a XWD service from eEuroparts. The light still comes on though. He said that I might need to replace the switch but wasn't...

  13. 9-3 aero xwd with leaking shocks- coilovers or new shocks/struts

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    So, recently bought a 2009 9-3 aero. Rear shocks are leaking and will need to be replaced before too long. The cost looks to be fairly similar- 1200 for oem shocks and struts vs 1000 for coilovers. Assuming cost of installation to be similar. Perusing old threads, it seemed most people went...

    9-3 Sedan, Cabrio '04+, Combi, 9-3X Workshop
    Hi y'all! I first saw a 1985 900s Turbo, and I wanted to own a Saab. The dude was selling it for 500 bones, but my Dad said no, because I was just 17 at the time, 1999. I totaled an '05 9-3 Linear in an accident, and I replaced it with a 2010 9-3 2.0T XWD, new. This car has been a blessing, so...
