I am going to miss the old look, like having my best friend move away, but this new layout is a great improvement. Job well done.

I don't like it :( When you have a car that 99% of the parts are NLA (another story...) trying to browse for available parts is nigh on impossible with the new layout :( At least with the old design the images were larger so you could see at a glance what it was without having to click the tiny thumbnail.

What would help a lot is to be able to filter out NLA parts.

Thanks Guys,


We appreciate the feedback. With any change comes some fear of the unknown but it also brings new opportunities. We are in the process of updating the search capability to make this more user friendly, be sure to check back with us in the coming days for the update.

The biggest improvement you’ll find with the site is the availability of the full Saab electronic parts catalog search function. And it can be done VIN specific, meaning you can also search for parts specifically for your car. Additionally, we now offer a larger and broader range of Saab Original parts and exciting new products and services at a value previously not available.


We hope everyone visits our site and sees first hand our passion for the Saab brand.

Thanks Nutcase,


We still appreciate the feedback. I'm not sure there any sites or catalogs in the business that can filter in the manner you request. We understand the passion (I have several old Saabs myself) and we would love to list and sell every part Saab ever made but realistically that isn't possible. We will continue to offer a larger and broader range of Saab Original parts while we revisit older parts that are still available. In some cases we have contracted with new manufacturers to procure parts that have been previously unavailable. As you can imagine we have to prioritize and maximize our efforts to the newer models first just because of the sheer size of their population. Rest assured if there are any older discontinued parts that we can make the business case to support the volumes we will do it.



Thanks Again Guys!

Hi again guys,
I found a key feature we just added and it was just what you wanted . When you search it can now filter by two categories: Showing buyable parts or Show all parts. Look at the bottom of the selection after you have drilled down to the specific area and you will see those. It looks like the default is BUYABLE PARTS.

This was a direct result of feedback from customers just like yourselves. Kudos to our IT team for responding to our customers!

Have a Great Day!

Yes, it was the inclusion of EPC that I was happy to see. It took me a few days to get used to all the new site changes and to get the nuances down, but I find it more helpful in many ways. Nutcase made some good points and it is very gratifying to see that you were able to respond in a constructive and helpful way - and so quickly too. Very well done. I may be presumptuous in speaking for others, but we appreciate your continuing support of the Saab Marque.

Thanks for the compliments guys.

We work hard every day to improve your experience with the site, many changes you cannot see but this was one of the best we have implemented IMHO. I also approached our team with your latest recommendations (nutcase) to see when they could also be incorporated.;ol;

Keep the suggestions coming and I will pass them along!

Just dropping back by to say how useful that VIN search has been while I look for another Saab. It is so helpful to be able to see how any particular vehicle was equipped by the factory. Thank you again.
