2002 9-3 Convertible 2.0 Turbo Ecopower

I made a basic blunder in creating two new keys for my 9-3 and thought recording it here might help fellow Saabists avoid it.

I purchased 2 blank keys (with electronic internals) online listed as being compatible for a 9-3. The keys that arrived (left key pictured in the first picture attached) were not compatible with my car.

The electronics weren't the issue. The keys were too thick to fit my ignition. I then had to find another couple of blank keys (second picture attached) with the correct blades.

My advice to anyone buying blank keys is to doublecheck the shape of your master keys. You need to check the blade for either the square shoulders or the thin groove along the edges of the blade in order to determine which key stock you require.
