Let me show you mine. Content.

I just acquired the last piece of the viggen kit for my ng900:








It's a little beat up, but you cant argue with $85 shipped

So, to total things up, I have $1300 invested in my viggen kit and realcar spoiler, including a BRAND NEW passenger skirt that came in the factory saab paper ($200 ftw hehe), which isnt bad IMO. I'm need to get it all fixed and painted (front bumper came off champs car that was in an accident. 2 small cracks on the bottom, where they are all cracked anyway).

I also have about a billion new parts to put on it. Vogtland springs, newish td04, all parts to build a 3" turbo back exhaust, all new oil/water lines, ebay intercooler, nonturbo 5spd trans, subframe braces, spec flywheel, hydraulic clutch conversion, 3" throttle bend, 97+ rear axle for big rear brake upgrade kit, new brake pads for my brembo kit, factory saab CF dash, black interior, etc etc. i'll be sure to get pics of it all. it's going to be busy, between working on this and the audi

eh, seems to be about the going rate these days. $400 on the front bumper, 300 on the rear bumper, 200 on one skirt, 85 on the other skirt, and 250-300 for the spoiler (dont remember exactly how much, but it was before the price increase from nick)

Am sorry if you feel this way. I really didn't mean to offend you or anything. It was a joke....I want to have some fun.


I don't want to make a new thread every time I buy new windshield wipers.....

Palmer, I'm not trying to be a dick, and I was not making fun of anybody with my thread title.

How do you "accidentally" hit the edit button, and then accidentally select the word "content" and then "accidentally" hit the backspace key, and then "accidentally" hit the "save changes" button?

I think you'll notice that over the past 2 weeks I have calmed down, have been trying to be more helpful and post less bullshit, in an effort to conform with the "social reforms" that Sir Tweek VI has implemented.

Considering the multiple threads that have been started by multiple moderators either starting or ending with the word "Content" I assumed it was a safe term to use. Obviously not.

To whichever moderator edited my thread title originally, can you please provide, either through a PM or in the Information forum, a list of terms/words/phrases that are no longer safe to use on this site? I believe it would help clear up any future confusion.

They are easier to change than that acutally. You can just double click the title without opening the thread.

FYI, you double click on a thread title to change it.

It's pretty easy to do. I erased a title by accident a week ago.

So, there you go.

word up.

This is the reason you don't buy the viggen in the first place, look how much easier it is to just convert a regular ng/9-3!

overpriced models, surprised they were even made.

if, for example, you want the 2.0 motor instead of the 2.3 motor, and T5 instead of T7 so you can have BOV goodness, converting a 900 is the only way to go.

or mushrooms.

plus i like having a custom installed pussymagnet, instead of the factory one. more gigahertz.

LOL.....Once you buy the seats, interior bits, body parts, 9-3 bumpers, undertray pieces, turbo and hardware, brake calipers and rotors, and do the hydraulic clutch conversion, you're close to the price of a Viggen.....

That's not even including a 2.3L conversion.

Looks like a nice piece for a nice price.

I would be content with this purchase as well.
