Looking for Audio & Performance Mods for 2005 9-3 Arc

Just (last Saturday) picked up my metallic Red 2005 9-3 Arc.. looking to add a 6-disc CD and a bluetooth for my cell phone. I noticed that there are 2 buttons labeled for the cell phone on the steering wheel which do nothing.. what do I have to add to make these active? Also, what's required to add the 6-disc changer on my own?
What performance mods are available which will not void the warranty?

Thanks!

Bart

Congrads on the new car!!! Is this your first Saab? With the great pricing going on, it was a good time to buy!

The phone buttons will not work in the US. These buttons only work with Tel 2 in Europe.

I guess you didn't get the drivers package (it came with the 6 disc changer and Pre-Wiring for Hands-Free Phone )

If you did not get the Drivers package (Pre-Wiring for Hands-Free Phone) , you can try this Tel 1 kit:

You still need a bluetooth kit. I added a sony blue tooth kit to my 2003 SS, and it works good...

Are you planning on adding the in-dash 6 disc changer?

If your really handy, and have done car audio work before, it shouldn't be to hard. If not, I would have the dealer do it....

Adding an aftermarket exhaust shouldn't void your warranty. Any software upgrade (BSR, Nordic, etc) is up to debate between you and your dealer if you have issues.
