White?

I swear I saw a white NG/9-3 the other day. It was parallel parked so I could not see the rear light or grille to see what it was.

Are these rare?

Come to think of it, I've never seen one. Then again, I'm in the south, where most people think Saab is what you do when you're sad...

They're out there... not many. I think white is a little more common for the convertible body style though.

When I was in the market for a new car I was looking for a 99 White 93SE coupe... almost IMPOSSIBLE to find, especially with black leather int... there are so few of those fucking cars...

My plans for a vert someday (not necessarily the current one) are to have a) white paint, b) Viggen body ensemble (including convert bridge spoiler), c) mostly white mouldings, trim, etc, d) tan tonneau top and e) black interior. I can't even imagine how hot that would look.

I did see one yesterday...it was a '99 5 door SE. They are sharp, when I had my white c900 "SPG" I was always looking for a 3door 900 or 9-3 turbo for my next car, but I could never find one. I have seen some white 3 door ng900 N/A's before...those don't cut it for me though

Here's a few white ones at the dealer where I got mine.

This place also has a lot of 03 verts with viggen kits and seats.

Pretty cars, but I don't think the 9-3S is anywhere near as pretty as that SE with those side skirts and those rims...

I'd try to find the closest thing I could to Viggen rims in 17s or 18s and have them painted gunmetal.

ftw? you mean wtf???

I think an 02 white would look good with the Viggen kit. As they are now, the black plastic body trim doesn't do much for the styling.

Actually, that is an abreviation, not an acronym. An acronym is when you take the first letters of all the words to form a new word that you pronounce. NATO, for example. An abbreviation is the same first letter of the word, but not to form a new word. ABS, is spoken as letters, not like the trim bit I have on my stomach. And ftw falls into this catagory as well.

I dunno about that... look it up . CHECK THIS, either way it seems to be a fine line .

Quote:
An acronym is a label formed from the beginnings of words (Greek: acro [head] and nym [word]) -- or very rarely, from letters in the middle of words. There is no requirement that an acronym be pronounceable as a normal word (this is a curious myth perpetuated by American dictionaries): IBM is just as much an acronym as LASER.
