A great weekend for the pre-loved 9-3 market...

For those of you who weren't at Molly Malone's yesterday for the NESA meeting to overhear the phone call I received from my friend Chris and his wife Melissa, I was summoned out of the meeting to do a quick pre-purchase inspection on what would become their new car -- a 2003 9-3 Arc 2.0T in Merlot Red!

One successful conversion!

A few hours later, in the lovely countryside of Freeport, Maine, I too joined the ranks of 9-3SS owners and committed some meaningful assurance towards the purchase of Nick Wood's (Nick900Turbo) 2003 9-3 Arc 2.0T 6-speed in Silver!

Oh I'm aware of the quirks that await me down the road... I am seriously considering buying a Tech-II with CANdi to aid in business related tasks, as well as bailing me out of having to marry and divorce any and all components connected to the bus.

Nick's car is f'n mint, though. I took it for a rather spirited test drive through the backroads of Freeport, Maine and was thoroughly impressed -- my only recent reference is a 2007 9-3 2.0T Anniversary with 11k on it.

Oh I love mine. For the most part.

But the random lights are always interesting. Luckily most of the stuff is fixiable via TecII updates rather than being mechanical.

Here were the problems Nick had:

Sunroof inop - reprogramming
rear window inop - window reg and reprog
wipers inop -reprogramming fixed
fuel gauge inop - new sender arm
cd player inop
radio HU occasionally dead
Cabin fan failed then the relay controlling it failed
Random problems and warnings like steering lock malfunction, the alarm going off while driving it, warning saying the onstar service cannot be located...



I had most of the same issues. But it sure looks good. And rides well.
