Question 9-3 Newbie Questions

Me:
been 2K 9-5 Aero owner for 11yrs and in the process of purchasing a 2004 9-3 Aero convertible -

Question:
When looking up info for 9-3's I come across the terms SS, SC, CV & 5D (assuming 5 doors). What exactly do these acronyms mean? It would help since I plan to tune my new car to upper stage.

SS- sport saloon(sedan), SC- Sport Convertible, I've only heard "CV" for continually variable transmission(automatic), and the 5D would be the wagon.
Hope this helps, good luck with the purchase!

Saabs don't have a CVT.

A "CV" would be a convertible. In 2004 there wasn't a wagon or Sport Combi (could be SC). I think the first year for those was 2006.

You'll also hear Linear, ARC and Aero.

Linear is a Base - This car will have slightly less HP -- 195, and will not have a screen in the radio.

ARC is the middle of the road, it will have a screen in the radio, and the 210HP engine.

Aero in 2004 would have the 210 hp 4-Cylinder engine, and a bunch of cool ground effects, as well as more options.

Depending on the year sometimes these options are varied... These are the usual combinations.

Excellent help
Thanks guys

Reason for posting question is the MAPTUN site http://www.maptun.com/
They reference 9-3 convertible as SS/SC -- not sure why.

Purchased it (CV)- very hot looking and in great shape and yes 210HP (needs tuning to upper stages...
