New to the SaabLink....

...and Saabs in General.

I've been a part of the VW/Audi scene for a long time, and after driving my fiance's car (ng900) more than mine, I decided to get a Viggen.

There happened to be a CPO silver 5-door on Saabnet one day, and it was calling my name.

I've come close a few times, but this was finally the time to pick one up.

Having owned a chipped 1.8T as well as a twin-turbo S4, I can honestly say that the Viggen is impressive.

I have already done the usual mods to get the friggin thing to drive straight, so now comes the fun part.

So, anyways, just wanted to introduce myself, and raise a drink to being an internet car dork. More info in my cardomain page.

You have good taste. I love the 337, the Quattro Coupe and the S4. I had a run in with an S4 in 3rd gear with the Vig.....your latest purchase is faster :P

Nice ride, Ken! Welcome to 'Da Link...

There are some crazy, crazy Saabs up in our neck of the woods, so you're in great company. There's a first-class Saab performance shop in Billerica if you ever get the taste for more power. In the next month, an evil 2.5L (stroked) Viggen with a GT3076 is going to be tuned there. HP will be well over 400, probably closer to 500....

Congrats on the Saab, and welcome....

As a former VW driver myself, welcome to the Swedish side of things. My boyfriend (better known as my Saab evangelist) was really pushing me towards a Viggen, but I went with a 2001 9-3 SE HOT instead. No need to tempt the police THAT much, in my case.

All-

Wow, I just logged on to my computer today for the first time (I was out runnig around on appointments all day), and I can't believe the response!

The VW scene was cool for a while, but has recently been infested by some not so fun peeps that kind of wreck the scene a bit.

Saab people have always been so chill, and I'm psyched to see what the scene is like this weekend.

As for your questions....

-Yes, my name is Ken.

-Thanks for thinking I have good taste in cars... they have been fun.

-Yes, my viggen will spank my old S4 (just give me a bit of time).

-Automotion are good people

-Yes, the 337 is UBER rare. They made 1700 total, and mine had a bunch of other stuff... see here

-And most of all... I made that sig yesterday in like 20 minutes... I had no idea it would get this much attention. HA! Good stuff.

See you all this weekend.

-Ken

PS - we all know that silver Saabs are faster
