Cool Viggen upgrade!

So i finally got that sick six speed uprgrade for the Viggen!



Soooo yeah!! Couldn't pass up this deal! 17k!! Ok ok details....

2011 9-3 Carbon Grey Metallic, black interior, six speed manual, and 2.0T. Unfortunately I had to trade the Viggen in.... Kinda bummed but she popped my cherry for Saab's, got me into a "family" of car enthusiests, and brought me some great experiences. It's time to move on and here she is. My second Saab is gonna be a hard one to not start messing with.... Ugh its gonna be hard!

I think the first upgrading will be in the lighting dept. It's got halogen headlights which will save me in the long run and no foglights. I'm thinking of doing Silvania Silverstar turn signal bulbs all around first. Down the road ill probably upgrade the headlights to 6k hids and get the factory fog kit and get 3k hids....... Ok now I'm gonna stop rambling lol just excited about the new ride!

Haha, well its what i like either 5 or 6k hids. Looking for the purist white light. And yes the plates were transfered from the vig. The front one got beat severely everytime I went through a car wash. It's actually almost snapped in half lol.

Well i still owed 2k on the vig so they used the trade to wipe that loan. When all was said and done it was 17,250 down from 31k.

Wow, I think I would trade my Subaru in on something like this.

Find me one? How much would a FWD V6 be?

The V-6 was dropped around '09 or '10. So if you want one, you are going to be looking at used which winds up costing as much as '11's seem to be going for.

I am finding XWD '11's demo's for the high $19's.

Hmm, so the V6 is only XWD now, is that what you're saying? Or is it completely gone?

Either way, a 2011 Saab for 17k sounds good. I don't even really care about a warranty, should I?

Completely gone when the new 9-5's came out, so only the flagship would have the V6 option.

Aftermarket warranties are available. GA got one for his new red vert for a couple grand.
