I've been looking for an Aero for about a month, but got lucky & ended up finding an '08 9-3 TurboX on ebay last night about 4 hours away from me. There were 7 bids, so I went ahead & did the Buy it Now & put down the deposit today. 46k miles, just under $16k black on black. looks great, VIN check is good, boyfriend talked to the seller for me, & one of the nice Saab guys on Facebook is going to look at it for me tomorrow! Makes me a little nervous buying a car online, but hopefully all is well & we're going to pick it up on Saturday, so I'm very excited! No more boring Hondas for me :) My boyfriend has an '03 9-3 Linear as his daily driver & now he wants to find one like mine to replace his other car! Will post pics when I get it!

Congratulations and welcome. Nice car!

I'm a tad jelly. I'm in Australia and there's only about 25 TurboX cars floating around here, so they are hard to find.

Great first Saab, pretty jealous here! Awesome price, too, at least for what I've been keeping an eye on. Hope it works out. :)

thanks

thanks, everyone has been so helpful already! i don't think i would've bought this one if it weren't for the Saab guys on Facebook who posted the ad & then gave me lots of good info. made me feel so much better about buying online. i know this one is very rare around here as well, i missed out on 2 Aeros in the last month due to not being able to go look at them fast enough so i had to jump on this one. my boyfriend is jealous & he has already said he wants this one when i'm ready for something else haha. i drive my cars for a while though...i'm 31 & this is only my 3rd. hopefully it will last a long time!

pics

I picked up my car on Saturday & love it already! :) Bought it 4 hours from home so I've already done quite a bit of driving. It handles great through rain & on curvy roads. Even got to meet a few other Saab owners in the Dallas area. Hopefully, I uploaded these pics correctly. Seems like the owner took great care of it, it looks brand new inside & out!!

Now get Brian, rabbit or JZW to tack a 320 horse tune on top of that 280 and the grin factor will go up a tad along with about 3 more miles per gallon. :cheesy:

You can get more but that is the "basic" .. "stage 0 or stage 1".

What's that goofy insurance commercial for Progressive ... "about as happy as a body builder directing traffic" :cool:

Hey everybody, TexasAggies is the better half of me. The car will be may daily one day... Glad she loves it, and I hope she keeps it stock, for the sake of my sanity (I've been bitten by the mod bug more than once, and I'm allergic, lol.) Ah, is there a built trans from anyone for it? I would like better shifting one day, the paddles just don't shift quick enough, and I don't want to shred the trans with a tune.
