A coworker sold me this car in great condition at an even greater price. I love it a lot (i used to have 2 different 9-5 at different time) Its nice to be back in a saab again! So far I have washed and waxed it, installed some infinity speakers in the rear. I have some kickers coming tomorrow for the dash. It came with a 9-3 grill but I would love to get my hands on a rear reflector panel from 96-98. Also the backseat is nice but the front seats are not good at all. Hopefully I can find some nicer seats somewhere...Anyway, here are some pics and thanks for looking! The emblems are gone too which sucks.

Only very high quality chrome plating will last (define last)..
Try to keep the emblems shaded from the sun at all times..:D:cheesy:
Leather is durable, IF one really babies it, which 0.1 percent do.
Better is sheepskin, but leather looks and smells better...
Great pics, great car, and, IMO, a great PO.

900

thanks it drives like a dream! I put the other new front speakers in and it sounds pretty good. Its not like my harman kardon I had in the 9-5 but its plenty loud. I think it needs the door speakers but that seems very hard to do =(

Nice. Just like my car. You know the door speakers are subs, right?

Is your oil light coming on when the ignition is turned on?

Isn't it a great feeling to get back into a Saab?!?! Why do we leave them????
I've made that mistake twice with motorcycles. I left Aprilia twice and now I'm there to stay. Maybe I'll be smart enough to do the same here, just stay. And I sell Fords LOL.

900

Thanks again! No lights on the dash. just on startup then they all go away. Everything has been done on this car hehe. And...I actually didnt leave Saab on purpose. I had some parking tickets in Chicago and I could not afford to pay them at the time so my 02 9-5 arc was taken...blah...After that I had a Geo Metro, a 95 mercury mystique...then a cavalier. And then somehow...this 900 popped up and I can't even believe that it worked out and Im driving a Saab again. Its just like riding a bike, you don't forget haha. I love the saab "essence" you just don't get in other cars...I cannot explain it but I'm sure you all know. And I missed the Saab smell! Oh I could go on and on...:cheesy:

speakers

And yes, I know they are mid bass speakers or something? I want to replace them but I dont know with what (need to be frugal) and I dont know how. I saw the diagram on how to do it but I am scared ill break something...everything works I dont want it not to work haha. The door speakers just make a noise like "phhhttttt" is the best way to explain it. You cant hear it unless you put your ears down there. thanks for your input!

Amazon.com: Pyramid W64 6.5-Inch 200 Watt MidBass Poly Woofer: Car Electronics

I put them in my car, currently running 100 watts RMS. You have to trim the speaker mount (a dremel tool really really really helps) but otherwise these work, are $25 for a set, and do their job.
