You can check the VIN to figure out if it's really an SE. Someone could have installed SE emblems but it seems unlikely. I don't know if they had an SE coupe where you are but If the VIN starts with YS3DF, it's an SE. The base is YS3DD. You didn't post the year and that's important as well as country (maybe... if someone here knows something about your market).
Saab played a lot of games with options over the years so exactly what you'll find in an SE is never definitive up front. The possible options would include leather and heated seats, Automatic Climate Control, stereo amp/speaker upgrade, light body kit, spoiler, sport steering wheel, 16" wheels, and maybe some stuff I'm forgetting. Also, there may be engine differences in your market: The 8th character of the VIN identifies what motor/HP you have. If it's really a 2000+ SE, you should have the HOT motor, but check the VIN.
Yes it's pretty confusing, it's a 1998 ys3df it's a Swedish sold car in Sweden, also states SE on my registration document too. Not sure if it has automatic climate control, maybe it does I just use the on off button. It's 155bhp 2l Turbo, IF I'm correct then it's the smallest of the turbo engines, very different to my 1999 2.3T 9-5 but surprisingly just as fast despite being nearly 50bhp down, all down to the lightness and rigidity of the body. It's on 16" alloy's, so I have the uprated sports suspension? Unfortunately no leather seats, but that's also a good thing in Sweden when it's-30°c leather is awful to sit on when it's that cold.
I notice yours doesn't have a sunroof either. I'm almost positive every car that came to the States that was a 9-3, whether it was a 1999 with the B204 or the 2000-2002 with the B205 all had the retractable sunroof.
There were 3 (three) cars brought to the United States in 1999 as the 9-3 coupe with the SE trim. All were automatic. 2 Scarabe Green and 1 Silver. All coupes arrived with the B204L. eSaabparts US Production Numbers
I just picked up the car I've been searching for, for several years. 1999 9-3 3 Door Coupe. 5 manual with black leather interior. 1 of 18 in Cirrus White.
Hi, Does anyone know weather you can put a 9-3 rear muffler (part #32019390 - see screen shot) on a NG 900 SE Turbo?
I assume that only the hanger brackets and pipe flange would have to match.
I'm having trouble finding anyone that sells an OEM rear muffler for the 1994-1997 900.
I can't seem to figure this one out, got my heagasket changed, threw in a new MAF while I was at it, as well as all new vacuum lines. Now the car seems to die when I depress the clutch or throw it in neutral. Feeding it throttle seems to keep it alive for the most part but I would like to figure...
My 1995 Saab 900s stopped starting originally I thought it was the starter motor so I took one I knew worked off my parts car and still nothing. When I turn the ignition all I hear is a click it doesn’t turn over (I think from the starter relay) all the dash lights come on. The battery is less...
Gents: Need some advice on a stereo upgrade. Sorry for the long post, but I figured I should give you all the info.
Found at the u-pull (all circa 2005ish, but looks to be in good order):
Doors: Polk DB5250 5.25" packaged with dome tweeters Polk Audio db5250 5-1/4" component speaker...
FYI - If anyone is around that area or wants to travel, this is a nice find. If I was closer I'd be thinking about buying and swapping my car's manual and other bits in/on. Not many left with low miles like this.
Qualifier: I don't know the seller... just saw this in a group...
