'99 Saab 9-3 SE 3/4 DIN radio pocket
Hello Saab Central Forum,
This is my first post and I sincerely hope I can get some advice from the community. College student here looking to overhaul audio system due to people who love to pump bass more than targeted political ads love to skew relevant data and because the built in radio is a...chore. With that said, first step is replacing the radio..which needs one of those nifty pockets for an aftermarket setup. Challenge accepted.
Great, I will research. Great, GenuineSaab and PartsforSaab have the perfect parts. Not so great, Saab parts do not agree very well with 2012 consumers due to some hubaloo oversea. Both places have the pocket on back order with no time estimate on when they will be available. I then resorted to my knowledge of Google's impressive search query methods to hash out some alternatives. Besides everyone pointing to now out of stock items, some disagreements over the actually height due to the cup holder, and people who ended up finding universal adapters that they just shoved in Chuck Norris style...I found not much helpful.
I almost considered ending my quest for a pocket then and there, but when I want a damn radio I'll get one. So perhaps the more experienced and wizened users of the SaabCentral community can provide a little advice. :cheesy:
tldr; All of the '99 Saab 9-3 SE 3/4 DIN radio pockets for aftermarket radios seem to be out of stock. Does anyone know of an in stock source or an alternative?
PS: I just read over that post and my attempts at being funky fresh just make me sounds like a tool. Too lazy to change it now.
