Im relatively new to this forum and Im still learning about my car I just wanted to share with you guys a few things Ive been doing to my car since I brought it in February. Im a 21 year old college student in Philly I got my 2004 9-3 Aero for about 7K for my birthday. I've had the car for about 4 months and so far I couldnt be happier. Im a little new to this so bare with me. (sorry for the crappy pic took em on my phone):roll:

One of my very first mods I always do is tint the windows. I find that it makes the car look better in my opinion, keeps those UV rays off the leather, and keeps the car a little cooler. Which you can see in one of the pics its about 20% tint. To me the tint makes it look a little better idk what it is.

My second mod was my 55W HID kit from VVME the color is 6000K it looks really blue in the picture but its more white with a slight blue tint. These light the road up a sh** load better than the standard halogens. The only problem is it flickers every so often, but hopefully it can be cured with a relay harness which VVME shipped to me for free :cheesy:. These people are nice to deal with, real good customer service and it showed up to my door step in only 3 days and was about 52 dollars with shipping so it wasnt bad.

My most recent mod was the powered subwoofer I added from FLI audio which I heard is made by VIBE audio. Its a 12" powered sub and this thing makes the 13 speaker system sound soo much better. To me the system sounded good it just lacked a accurate low end bass sound, this is how it should of sounded from the factory. I found the while the door speakers sound good they are sometimes too punchy and produced inaccurate bass notes. I was a little scared installing it because I heard this car is a nightmare to work with audio wise. Thanks to saabas guide and few other members installing it was fairly easy. I tapped the F8 fuse for the power and F17(i believe) for the remote, it had high level connections so I used that. I got it for a really good deal too about 115 with shipping and the amp kit so I couldnt resist.

Im tryna decide whether im gonna lower it a little on Koni's with H&R springs next or go for the Optiflow and possibly Vtune stage 0 later down the road

there are a ton of saabs in the area, but most are older white woman:lol: most of the member that come out to the KoP meet are in the "Tri-State" Area, but i think there are about 5-10 members located in Philadelphia.
