Me too.


I wish this guy didn't put the wrong phone number in, as I would buy it tomorrow with cash in hand.

6 speed manual non combi turbo X?

I'm keeping my 9-5 combi for a while.

Jameson 03-28-2014 01:44 PM

Brought home an 06 9-5 Combi 5mt in gray today. Interior is so clean. Needs springs and poly front end lol

Facelift has begun

Took out the plugs, my gut says they are original.

The DIC was original according to the date. On the hunt for a new one without spending $300+ or buying a Chinese one.

You spend how much on this car? Stop being a cheap ass, and buy a genuine Saab NEW Di. It will last you 8 years, pretty much no question. Anything else will always be a "maybe" I'd also grab a $60 new genuine CPS, a $120 new fuel pump assembly, and a $114 NEW genuine air flow meter. They are all regular failure items which also tend to compromise driveability. These things will make the 8 year old car work right again. Even if they are not bad now, they will be soon.

Nice wagon! What kind of mileage on the car? I have been looking around for manual trans 9-5 wagons as well. They just make so much sense to me.

Tweek's Turbos 04-02-2014 02:32 AM

Sweet car! what are you doing with the chrome?

And Throttle body, I think those are 80-100k items.

Reading comprehension? I said I was looking for a NEW one and OEM. I secured one in under an hour for $260. I just had no interest in paying the retail of EEURO at $379.

I planned on a new AMM before tuning the car, CPS and pump as you said will give me some insurance.

As to how much I paid, I surely overpaid. I was willing to to grab it with a 5mt at that price.

106k, one owner car, seats look like they had never been sat in.

Yeah, I replaced the TB in my cousin's 9-5 Aero, not too bad of a job.

I used smoke plasti-dip, gave it a very similar finish to the OEM trim of the TurboX.

Great advice!

Where? I need a new OEM AMM at that price.

I threw a battery in it with a 6yr warranty as it was dimming and didn't want to turn over today.

Jameson 04-07-2014 11:57 AM

New rear roundel and a debage while I was out there. New DIC is going in today too when the engine cools down a bit.

Sweet wagon!

Are there two reverse lights on a wagon?

Dunno. I want to check if I just need a bulb in order to get dual rear fogs like I did with the Viggen.

srp 04-07-2014 01:58 PM

On the sedan one side of the inner tails is reverse and the other is rear fog.
So you can't.

But the wagon tail lights appear wider and to have a horizontal separation.
