New to me Turbo X

I had been looking for a newer car for 3 months, Drove a Golf R and was looking at 328I sportines. Just couldnt see not having a Saab as a Daily. I Traded in My 03 Aero for a 08 Turbo X Combi 6mt that came up on Saabcentral. I had my dealer negotiate a deal with the seller and within 24 hours it was mine. Picked it up last week Monday. The car so far is great. 48K on the ODO. I placed a order to GS the day after I had it, Windows will be tinted this week.

Congrats man! I've had my Turbo X combi for about 3 months now and absolutely love it.


Mine came with tint and had 46k miles with a little warranty left. I'll be doing a tune this spring which I'm pretty excited for.

Yeah I have a small amount of warranty, My flexpipe has a rattle, Ordered new midpipe from GS. Ordered the intake, torque mount and shift cable reinforcement.

Other things I want have to do is get updated coils and plugs and get a tune from JZW

Nice! Very nice. Does it have a tune? If it doesn't have one do it. The Vtune on these cars is smooth and saves gas too. There are a few good vendors out there and it doesn't cost an arm and leg like Hirsch and other big name.

Just like a Model T, came in two colors huh? There was black and if you didn't like that there was always black.

O.Z wheels are on and windows tinted 20 percent. Also installed shorter hangers for to move the exhaust up an inch.

That looks MEAN. Nice!!


What shorter hangers did you use? A saab part, or something else? My car desperately needs this.

I had some laying around, But I have seen people use the stock ones and move the hanger to the next hole. Makes a big difference.

Very Nice!

...I like the stock wheels better. Although, I'm weird like that.

Thanks, yeah stocks are great wheels, stock wheels have some small rash spots and I had a brand new set of snows with no wheels, so I did the swap. It looks good in person.
