aero + hptuners dyno tune = 13's = win.



smallballer - I wish I bought my b5 instead of the saab. I loved my 9-3, but the b5 is such a perfect car.

Yeah im getting it tuned by a local guy soon. Even though its not the Aero model.

The benefits are actually good and it does not void warranty or cause unnecessary damage.

Im not used to a car with torqe like this. I only really drove my MDX or a 06 280 4matic.

I like the looks of the 9-3 better. The Saab interior doesn't even come close to an Audi though. And again, the AWD thing...

an older picture of my car ~260hp and 280ft/lbs, but nothing has changed in terms of looks, except tires... only wished it handled better and my climate control worked right

It handles a lot better then when i got it, espically with the new tires my pov was skewed by my driving my friends supercharged 318ti with koni springs and shocks I guess. It just sucks becasue I can never put the power on as early as you can with the ti. The saab makes up for it with more power then it knows what to do with

Ive heard the old Saabs had horrid torque steer. They corrected it in the newer models.

yeah the new 900 and the older 9-3s had bad torque steer which is fixed greatly with a solid steering rack clamp and brace

Why does a saab thread get more respect than a volvo thread?

I have always had a secret fetish for 900 convertibles IDK but maybe its do to the most comfortable, well laid out interior I have ever sat in

the fact you can get one for about 3500 dollars and literally spend 25 dollars and be able to run high 14s depending on your tires while you have all the luxury ****.

When i got mine a couple years ago for 4200 it already had a mbc it was good for ~220hp and a 14.88 @ 98mph
plus the pull you feel in 2nd gear is nice

it's kinda like the appeal of the turbo eclipse except with a lot nicer interior

They are cheap. After 60K miles or so you can get them dirt cheap. Hell the nicer models are worth ALOT more than a bmw @ stock while they are loaded. If you see some C&D reviews they went better than the stock companies almost loaded.

After the miles hit though, the buyer is out. Which is horrid, but they know they are getting a quality ride.

Sucks they dont lease them anymore. That is why resale is low. Luckily I got one of the last leased cars so I know it was treated well.
