Dealer is out of engine air filters at the moment. Napa has some in stock...OK to use these? Any difference from OEM?

Not sure. I run K&N lifetime filter so I don't need to bother, and get maxflow and HP whilst using the stock aribox/intake.

I would think its fine. The stock paper filter does not look to be any different than other paper filters.

Awesome! Thanks. I just never know anymore what works and what doesn't and OEM is often the way to go with Saab.

Ditto. Didn't realize there were aftermarket filters. I looked a while ago at the chain stores but didn't check Napa.
And I don't think there is much difference in paper air filters. Oil filters are another story.

And don't you only have 24,000 mi. The filter can go up to 40,000 mi. I changed my first one at 40 and then just at 75,000. Both weren't that bad surprisingly however it is cheap insurance.
