Found this gem on Ebay, and bought it for 107$ + shipping. :p

Been chasing after one of these for a while now. Factory carbon fiber dash in VERY good condition, NOT the overlay.

The only problem is the right HVAC vent is broken...Can I take the good one from my current dash, and put it onto the CF one? If so, then how?

If you're referring to the yellow color, it's the flash that makes it look like that. How can you identify real cf dash to the overlay?

I wasnt refering to the lighting. I bought mine for 65 off of ebay a year or so ago. It came with the The SID CF and Radio CF peices too. You can tell its stick on because of the area around the light switch, vents, among other areas too. I dont think Saab made an entire dash out of CF, I believe its only available in the "stick on" form.

Lay it face down, once you start to work it out it might pop out as it's on a spring.

I used those reall tiny screwdrivers like for eyeglass repair.

Gently, and evenly pry the drivers into the areas where they clip, leaving them in there so they don't clip shut again. The whole center section will come out.

The vent directionals are all seperate and will need to go back the same way for it to work.

It's really not that hard once you get into it but can take a while the first time.

LOL! Hells Yea! I really wanted that for my car! It's ok though, I'll keep my eyes peeled for another one, hopefully soon. Good luck installing it! It's pretty easy as long as you know where the "hidden" T25 torx screws are! LOL.

Mine came from the factory like that in my 03 Convertible sport package...Mine doesn't really look like an overlay like the kind you buy off of ebay...i Have tried to peel it off and it isn't going any where. Ebay sells some pretty nasty looking vinyl overlays.

Was this from the last of the 9-3NG sport packages maybe?
